|Leather and plastic to please|
If you are dressing to please the rainwear enthusiast in your life, what you choose to wear with your raincoat can be almost as important as the raincoat itself.
Whether you’re wearing a three quarter length shiny PVC mackintosh, classic gabardine trenchcoat or traditional rubberized cotton riding mac, your choice of wardrobe can add or even detract from the overall appeal of the raincoat being worn.
Perennial favorites have always been high heel shoes or leather boots worn with a skirt and blouse.
Knee-high leather dress boots, along with leather riding boots are particularly popular with rainwear enthusiasts and especially when worn with black stockings or tights.
Rubber boots are also a favorite of many rainwear enthusiasts and today come in an assortment of attractive colors and styles. A pair of shiny black rubber boots worn with a shiny black or red mackintosh and rain hat; is truly a sight to behold.
Plastic rain hats along with the traditional rubber sou’wester are still very popular although it has to be said that the sou’wester is more suitable for braving the elements while participating in certain recreational activities than perhaps a trip to the theatre.
As a fashion accessory, leather gloves can compliment a raincoat nicely. So too can a pair of stylish black latex or PVC gloves although perhaps the later are better worn in a private and discrete setting.
A personal favorite of mine is leather trousers, which I think look great with a three quarter length plastic or rubber mackintosh providing the right shoes are worn with the outfit .
Whatever your likes or dislikes are when it comes to “dressing for pleasure” in rainwear, no one would deny that a raincoat can be a highly attractive and some might say erotic item of clothing on the right person. But let’s not forget to complement the raincoat with an attractive pair of boots, gloves or even a sexy rain hat.
