I recently picked up the first pair of rain boots I’ve owned since I was a kid, and I’ve come to the conclusion that rainy days are much more fun when you’re dressed for the weather. Luckily, dressing weather appropriate doesn’t mean you need to forgo being fashionable. For the rainy days to come here is a collection of rain gear that will keep your style intact, even in a downpour.
This trench by Kate Spade, and a coat of red lipstick, is all you need to look chic when it’s gloomy outside. The black is classic and the contrasting buttons are a nice detail. The styling of this outfit is adorable, as are those polk-a-dot tights.
If rain boots aren’t really your thing then these waterproof ballet flats might be just what you are looking for. They may not be designed for jumping in puddles but they can serve the dual purpose of keeping your feet dry on the way to work while still looking cute when you get to the office.
Umbrellas are often regarded as purely functional objects, but the parasol has long been a much loved fashion accessory. This red pagoda shaped umbrella is fabulous and will have you standing out on crowded streets.
Singing-In-The-Showers Slicker by anthropologie
This rain slicker from anthropologie is spring perfection. The black-check has a vintage feel and the anorak silhouette is fashion forward.
Another alternative to the classic rain boot is this bootie by Loeffler Randall. A mix of stylish bootie and rain boot, these will stand up to puddles and go with everything from skirts to jeans.
If you’re looking for an umbrella that is beautifully designed and will stand up to gale force winds Davek umbrella is the way to go. They come in a range of sizes from small enough to fit in your purse to an extra large golf size.
Love this rainy day lariat from jeweller epheriell. Made out of sterling silver with a chalcedony “rain drop” and umbrella charm this necklace is too pretty to save until the rain begins to fall.
