While winter’s freezing temps leave us with the challenge of layering each morning, it is arguable that compiling an ensemble to brave rainy days is more difficult. Whether it’s a drizzle or a torrential storm (aka El Niño as Angelenos have recently become familiar with), getting wet can really dampen your style. However, by strategically combining water-friendly shoes and protective outerwear with pieces you love, there are ways to still look fabulous despite a downpour. Here, 3 rain-proof outfits that promise to keep you dry and chic.
Rain's Got Nothing On Us
Going To The Office
A classic waterproof trench is a no brainer when keeping your clothes dry. Opt for a roomy, work-appropriate bag that you can sling over and keep close to your body under the coat. Pair with edgy snakeskin-print boots with coating that make trudging through wet streets less cumbersome.
Over The Weekend
Don't let Saturday afternoons go to waste. Stay cozy and dry outside in a super comfortable ensemble of sweater and cuffed jeans, topped with a raincoat rendered in the cutest pink color (beneficial for your safety when crossing the street!) Protect your feet with buckled rubber booties.
For A Night Out
Some pitter-patter on the windowsill shouldn't lead to canceled plans. Simply layer a fitted long-sleeve sweater underneath your party dress and protect your ready-to-dine-and-dance number with a long belted coat. Opt for patent leather pumps that are easier to clean and finish off with a blingy gold metallic cross-body.
