Shop the Shoot: What to wear on a Rainy Day!


It’s not often that we get perplexed about what to wear… but when rain is pounding on pavements and roads are slicker than ice we definitely get a bad case of wardrobe worry. Frizzy hair is not a good look and we aren’t keen on letting our sample sale scores get ruined with the wet. That’s why we enlisted the help of super stylist Ira Otivar, photographer extraordinaire Marion Tessier and master make-up artist Anael Darmon to come up with some looks for our awesome model Zhenya Zheleznyak to wear in the rain!

We’re big fans of Rue Madame at team Sassy, and because we’re all about super simple shopping we’ve added links for all the looks so you can shop the shoot! Rue Madame is one of Hong Kong’s premier shopping destinations with clothing and brands that are fashionable and long lasting. You can purchase all of the looks below online or head over to their awesome stores in IFC or Causeway Bay (see here for store locations).


When you need to look smart for work but the humidity and rain are causing confusion, pop on this Sandro Shirt ,$2,845 and these Sandro Shorts, $2,190 and you’ll be office ready in no time. These red lace ups are great for running around in the rain too!


How can you stay sophisticated in a downpour? Apart from investing in a sturdy umbrella, throw on this mellow yellow Sandro Top, $1,645 and this beautiful Claudie Pierlot skirt, $2,290 for instant rainy day glamour. The loose fitting, easy breezy top will keep you cool in the humidity, and we love the touch of sparkle the Gotta necklace, $129, adds to the whole outfit.invisible-line

Pain the town red in this all in one colour combo! This white and red Sandro top, $1,945, is super comfy and teamed with these Sandro trousers, $2,190, you’ve got the perfect weekend look. You can still stand out from the crowd in casual gear!

Last but not least is this gorgeous red Sandro dress, $3,745, which looks great with a matching red lip. The black Collect Point bag, $499, is ideal for carrying your much needed umbrella. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all look as chic as model Zhenya in the rain?!
