Are our clothes prepared for heat and heavy rain?

DrSummer shopping credit: In June I bought a pair of new slippers—light beige leather, silver buckles, long straps, and a thick footbed. As it got warmer from day to day, I would walk around in these slippers whenever possible. Then in July, when it rained, I bought a new rain jacket. Violet, painted, waterproof. I rarely left the house without this jacket until the end of August. A few other items were also added, a short-sleeved blouse, two shirts, and a dress. Summer 2021 will still be the summer of flip-flops and raincoats when it comes to fashion, and fashion for exceptional cases, which is much to be expected. This is evidenced by the extreme weather conditions of the past few months.
