From chic macs to SPF’s, these walking essentials ward off the elements.

1 Face Saving SPF

Walking means more time outdoors, which is great for your mood, but not so great for your face. Every dermatologist worth their medical degree preaches the importance of UV protection to keep sun induced ageing at bay (think sun spots, wrinkles, sagging).

2 No Show Socks

If you want to sport stylishly bare ankles, but crave the comfort and warmth of socks, then invest in these. Great for loafers or low top sneakers.

3 Chic Raincoat

Rainproof and stylish need not be mutually exclusive words. There’s nothing more depressing than a) getting soggy or b) looking drab. Go for outerwear that combines clean lines and a sleek cut.

4 Frizz Fighter

Humidity, drizzle and cold temperatures are Kryptonite to frizzy hair types. Opt for a silicon rich serum that will keep your style sleek.

5 Foot Freshener

When temperatures top out, keep cool with a foot powder. The best are infused with tea tree to protect the skin and are scented to keep feet smelling sweet.

6 Bucket Hat

Hats are practical (hands free rain protection) and cool. The bucket style was big at the shows (every model on the A/W 19 Dior catwalk wore one)
