September dressing is hard enough as it is, having to ditch the ditsy dresses we've been living in for months. And let's face it, this week's torrential rain isn't making it any easier. The weather forecast is wetter than ever, so we've put together a concise, capsule wardrobe for all your rainy day needs.
From protective outerwear and practical accessories to the only pair of waterproof boots you need to know about (a sort of wellie-chelsea hybrid - you've got to see it to get it), we've created a shoppable edit of everything you need to make getting dressed manageable, for at least the next week or so...
