The Temperamental Weather Survival Kit: Five fashion essentials you’ll need to beat the weather blues

Fashion folk and the recent bout of schizo-weather don’t sit well together.

Preparation and pre-planning an outfit are the epitome of working in this industry so that the following morning a sartorial crisis doesn’t ensue before the mirror, resulting in a teary-eyed and ravenous you leaving for the office.

So bad was the weather at times, A-Listers on the Paris fall 2012 front row felt the need to bring out the Crayola colours to really make a point.

Sadly, the weather has taken upon it self to change like the trends do every season, and really, there’s nothing we can do about it apart from stamping around in our favourite Louboutins to release the weather rage.

But no, we love our red-soles far too much, and therefore as an act of defiance before the recent sunny-rainy-windy-cloudy-sunny-confused weather, we’ve decided to collate our own wardrobe weaponry and pick out five of the best pieces to fend off what the skies send our way.

Our Temperamental Weather Survival Kit will ensure your smug ‘I feel so stylish even when it’s raining’ smile doesn’t wane like sneaky sunshine.
