The weather man has predicted heavy rains starting March. Which is practically within the next 8 days. Most Kenyan highlands will receive heavy rains.
Here are major accessories and items to buy for the rainy season.
Have you ever had a cheap umbrella that flips into a cone every time you are in the rain? It’s not a good experience. Buy a great umbrella that will not only protect you from the rain but also make you look presentable when you have meetings, need to go out or come in handy during functions.
After all, the maasai shuka will only protect you for so long! Accessorize with an Umbrella. This doesn’t sound as fashionable but functionable is fashionable too :).
2. Low Heeled Quality Shoes.
A low heel quality shoe is a great purchase because it will prevent you from having water enter your shoes or just letting water through. For this purpose, stick to high quality leather shoes that don’t leak water or peel off when they come in contact with water. Leather is a great material as it conforms to your foot, it’s sturdy, breathable and most commonly used material.
While mosts men will argue that there are no boots for them, they exist. Fashion savvy men look dapper in boots and if you are not sure, stick to black. The most common boots for men are the wingtip boot, the chelsea boot and the captoe dress boot. With these suggestions, if you are a man looking for a pair, these are great choices to start. I have seen them in Kenya and they promise to be a great staple for your wardrobe.

4. Quality Bag/Handbag
A quality bag is a must! You need to be sure of your gadgets, books and documents. For instance, you may forget your umbrellas, be caught in a drizzle or be in a place where you can not access shelter straight away. In either of these situations, it pays to have some level of trust on the the bag you invested in.
5. A Warm and Fuzzy Coat
You need a coat that accentuates your sense of style while keeping you warm. Although at times warm is better than stylish; there is no reason why warm should not be stylish first. Besides, a coat is such a great and casual accessory to have and being that you’ll wear it almost every other day, make it warm and stylish.
Plus a fashionable warm coat goes along way to brighten the dull weather.
Alright peeps! Make sure you keep warm and safe this March but also fashionable. Be on the look out for any post by the weather man to be safe from any harsh weather.
