How to Survive a Rainy Day in Style

Share

Thanks to storms like Joaquin, we’re on track for a super-soggy autumn, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your personal style between now and next spring. Designers like Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent are catching on to your weather woes, stocking their shelves with sleek and chic rain boots, umbrellas and trench coats to survive anything Mother Nature sends your way. Ready to shop? Look for rainy-day gear that’s both fashion-forward and technical, and always remember that you get what you pay for. That umbrella bought on a street corner may cost five dollars now, but when it collapses in five minutes, you’ll wish you’d invested in something slightly more legit. Above, our top 10 accessories to keep you warm, dry and fabulous this fall.
