Rain is just a fact of life- and nowhere more so than in London. It rains a lot….and by a lot I mean A LOT. I think that’s why in the summer where it rains slightly less everyone gets over excited and goes outside. Pubs, clubs, restaurants and shops all migrate to the sidewalks or pop-up in parks when the weather is fair.
This week however, the rain will be back.
It will still fee fairly hot, and London does get muggy and humid, so I recommend a light trench- the most classic and chic of all rain clothes.
Leather shoes keep feet dry and a hat protects the hair- but I wouldn’t be a Londoner if I didn’t carry a brolly with me (that’s an umbrella for all you foreigners and Americans). The other thing that I would certainly recommend is to keep a light cardigan in your bag, because as soon as night hits, the temperature drops. I like grey cashmere- just sayin’.
