I hate to break it to you, but the spells of sunshine that we’ve been waiting for aren’t predicted to last, and with bouts of rain and a drop in temperatures on the horizon, it’s time to start shopping sensibly. I’m not quite ready to pack away my sandals just yet (a girl can still dream), but as soon as the strong winds and grey skies start to pick up, I always revert back to the same key pieces in my wardrobe to see me through intermittent spells: knitwear, a pair of jeans, and a jacket. The classic cold-girl uniform.
Thankfully these pieces are incredibly easy to shop, and even if you’ve struggled to find the right pair of jeans or can’t seem to find a jacket light enough for sunshine but cosy enough for cold weather, I’ve done the legwork for you and found everything you could possibly need in one store–& Other Stories.
& Other Stories is always good at making practical clothing feel premium and polished, and you can spend a little bit more on pieces that you know are built to last, so no need to worry, you’ll still be wearing the same purchases in 5 years time (and the summer dress I bought in 2018 is a testament to that).
Skimming through the new-in and bestsellers sections, I’ve found the knits, jeans and jackets that are perfect for the weather ahead, and i’m confident you’ll find something in this list that you’ll truly love. So, keep scrolling for the best rainy day pieces that you can buy now from & Other Stories. You won’t get caught out in a thin dress and sandals again.
