Fashionista NOW: Rainy Day Long Cardigans Fashion Inspiration

Credit | Stephanie Liu

The rainy season calls for cardigans. Read on for stylish ways to wear long cardigans and why heavy coats are not part of a Malaysian wardrobe.

Malaysia is a tropical country where it’s hot and humid with bouts of rainy season all year long. There is no 4-season demarcation to tell us if we’re entering into spring, summer, autumn or winter. These seasonal labels are used in the fashion world but here on the hot ground, we live them in the abstract, especially for a follower of fashion.

In a way, I am appreciative that there is no winter here as I am more of an autumn person and in the evenings when the sun is kind, it’s sort of autumn everyday! Nevertheless, I do think about the feel of snow in my mind, sometimes.

We’re a nation of cardigan-loving people. It may be cold in the train that our teeth clatter but when we step out, the relentless sun makes sure to let us remember that our bodies are rooted to the equator. In this manner, the cardigan, to us, is akin to the umbrella. We bring it around even when it’s hot for the moment but when it pours without notice usually after a period of intense heat and killer humidity, we breathe a sigh of relief comforted again by our cardigan, men and women alike.

Since some of my readers are from cooler climates, I hope this sheds a light on why the Malaysians’ wardrobes lack the heavier coats that the western counterparts are obligated to wear come the cooler months.
