Rainy Day Outfits for Fall & Winter

Rain Edit

When it rains, it pours. But, that doesn't mean you can't look great in the rain. Sometimes it's cold, sometimes it's not, but no matter what the temperature is, there are a few things to keep in mind when dressing for a rainy day.
Rainy days usually require:
  • Rain boots, or waterproof shoes. You can always bring another pair of shoes and change into them once you're out of the rain.
  • Waterproof coat. This isn't such a necessity, if you have an umbrella with you, because you won't get you're clothes wet, but it;s always a good idea, unless you live in a desert to get a coat or jacket that sheds rain. 
  • An umbrella. Avoid ruining your hair, clothes and bag by having an umbrella with you when the forecast expects rain.  When you have this, you don't often need the other two above.
Keeping that in mind, here are some outfit ideas:

Dress Smartly

Waterproof Those Boots

Having rain boots and carrying another pair of shoes once you get to your indoor destination is a great way to dress your best no matter if it's rain or shine, rain or dry. A classic and rain repellent trench coat are a go-to during this time of the year, although any rain repellant material will do. A canvas bag can handle rain better, and won't get water spots the way a nice leather bag would. If you carry an umbrella, this won't matter so much. Of course, if it is cold, bring some gloves for those hands, they are after all, one of the first areas (including the feet) to get cold first. And since your hands will be outside to hold the umbrella, gloves really are that important.

What suggestions do you have for dressing on rainy days?
