It is the rainy season and the rains are here to dominate our days. Since we cannot change the weather, it is best we prepare for it.

Rainy season

With these rainy season essentials, you can be sure your cloudy day will seem bright!

1. Umbrella

You need a umbrella unless you love the rain showering on you. A umbrella will protect you, your hair and clothes from becoming drenched by the rain.

Get a large umbrella to protect the whole family and a small or folding umbrella for yourself.

2. Raincoat


Many people think raincoats are for school children. Despite the fact that raincoats are less fashionable, they'll are easier to carry around than a 3 feet long umbrella.

3. Backpack cover

Some backpacks have this feature inbuilt while some do not. Getting a backpack cover will keep your items from being ruined by the rain.

4. Water resistant footwears

Water resistant footwears are a rainy season must-have as you don't want your expensive shoes ruined by the rain. A footwear made of rubber or some other water tolerant material is cheap and will also save your leather shoes.

Quick tip: You can carry your shoes in a bag and do the change when you get to your destination.

5. Sweaters

Sweaters are essential during the rainy season. The environment becomes colder when it rains. You will need a sweater if you don't want to catch a cold.


Also, a sweater helps to add a layer to your outfit which will improve your appearance.

6. Dark jeans

During rainy season, it's advisable that you wear darker shades of jean especially your trousers. This is because the mud and stains  can be easily washed off.
