It's that time of the year again, a meteoric stage that involves extreme weather seesawing from unbearably warm to rainy in a hot second. In this transition period from the wet to dry season, you can expect unpredictable weather. So what's a girl to do when dressing up in the morning? Prepare for both, of course!
Looking to Park Shin Hye for some style inspiration, we give you a rundown of five chic closet essentials that will help you beat the heat and rain comfortably.
1. A structured mini.
Bell-sleeved top, A-line mini skirt
A mini skirt in the rain?! Yes, it can be done! Choose a structured mini that won't lose its shape even if the wind blows. Then, enlist the help of a bell-sleeved top for extra warmth. Plus points if you top it off with long outerwear (make sure your jacket's hem is longer than your skirt) to help stave off the cold.
2. A bomber jacket.
Striped boxy shirt, Jacket with embro & patches, Denim skirt
While we've been enjoying it's resurgence into the public eye for the past two years, it's a wardrobe staple that endures the seasons. This time around, keep utility in mind and opt for something sparsely decorated.
3. A pair of split trousers.
Off-shoulder with slits, Culottes
It's easy to see how this piece can easily make a statement. Pair them with an off-shoulder top like Park Shin Hye, or don a fluffy sweater to keep things cozy.
4. A printed button-down.
Printed long sleeves blouse, Cotton twill utility skirt
A lightweight button-down is exactly what you're looking for when it comes to bipolar weather. It's breathable enough to feel the breeze when it gets sunny, while the sleeves offer cover from any sudden downpour.
5. A white tee.
Boxy shirt with pocket, Wide leg cropped denim pants
They don't call this piece a closet staple for nothing. Able to integrate seamlessly in anyone's wardrobe, upgrade this versatile piece with a patched up version for a youthful vibe.
