Dress­ing to suit the rainy days

Daily Trust - - SHOW TIME -

The rainy days are grad­u­ally set­ting in and ev­ery­one would want to en­joy the much adored sea­son but not with­out pro­tec­tion and care. There is noth­ing to worry about. Just like the dry sea­son, the wet sea­son would come, make an im­pact es­pe­cially for the largely agrar­ian com­mu­ni­ties in Nigeria and then go.

Ex­perts say flu, pneu­mo­nia and other ill­nesses in­clud­ing cough, catarrh and rheuma­tism are preva­lent in the sea­son, hence the need to be well equipped.

Here are some tips to help you to scale through the sea­son.

- Wear some­thing light like yel­low, white, or­ange, light blue but do not wear black, red, vi­o­let or pur­ple. These colours ab­sorb sun­light, and light re­flect; dark colours will make you hot and sweaty.

- And if you are al­ler­gic to the rains and cold, never spare a pull-over, sweater or a cardi­gan. Al­ways en­sure your fash­ion taste is cus­tomised to take in a sweater through­out to give your body the needed warmth and pro­tect you from catch­ing a cold.

-If you don’t want to be drenched in the rain, then en­sure you carry an um­brella with you as you step out for the day’s ac­tiv­i­ties.

-For ladies, avoid us­ing too much make-up be­cause it may run off. As the weather changes sud­denly, it might be sur­pris­ing that drops come down im­me­di­ately and your heavy make-up might just be caught in the rains.
