For the rain…

I am collaborating with the Spanish blog Yuanfang Magazine. As they use Spanish, here you have another of my articles for them translated into English. You can read the Spanish version here. I hope you like it! 🙂

FOR THE RAIN…

Because of its subtropical climate, Taipei is a city where it rains throughout the year. But the city is ready for it and does not stop at any time. Most streets have porticoes, and umbrellas and raincoats are sold in all convenience stores that are scattered throughout the city.

Its inhabitants are also prepared and do not change their day to day because of the rain. In my case, I’m not afraid to cringe, but when it rains I would rather like to stay home and watch the rain comfortably from my couch through the windows.

As this is not always possible and you have to go outside yes or yes, I noticed that many Taiwanese girls and women wear flip flops when it rains. As they have told me when I asked them, they use flip flops because it is a very clear way to not spoil the shoes with the water.

Usually the flip flops that they wear are plastic and with wedge, although there are also flat, shiny or not, with different patterns, colors, etc.. Here high-heeled shoes or sneakers with wedge, such a trend in recent months, are very common, so why the flip flops would not have height too?

For who does not like wet feet, especially with the puddles, the other majority choice for rainy days are the rain boots. Its use is increasing and it is easy to find wellies in night markets and shops. They are practical and have also become a new and trendy complement. They are in all colors, prints and prices, with or without wedge, etc., to suit all styles and budgets.

Of course, the best known brand of this type of footwear and with more presence here is Hunter. The British brand has several shops and distribution points in the city, and the fact that a few years ago did a collaboration with Jimmy Choo or that it is the favorite of the celebrities, only increases its popularity among girls eager to follow the fashion and that enjoy watching and commenting on the style of the celebrities who wear them.

Ivy’s gradient shorts

Ivy also was in the music festival A Rockable Day, where I went last Saturday and had a great time!

She was wearing a natural T-shirt, gradient high jeans shorts tied with a brown leather belt and dark rain boots. Ivy’s complements were a black watch, a pair of big black sunglasses and a cute turquoise small bag, that she told me it was from Korea.

Jan and her rain boots

Jan Lee was in the shop Vestiaires, in the Shida Night Market, when I met her.
In a city like Taipei, where it rains so much, to have a pair of rain boots is very recommendable! Jan’s ones are a Hunter black pair, combined with short trousers, a long black cardigan tied with a thin brown bow and a silver pendant on her neck, more visible thanks to her short haircut.
