Style Sleuth. Don’t Schlep The Rainwear

No matter what catchy phrase you can associate rain with (i.e. “It’s raining men”, “Umbrella, ella, ella…”, etc.), the reality is slightly less catchy: Rain is wet, cold, and messes up any good hair day you had before you shut your front door.

Spring is upon us, and even though we greatly look forward to the
green and flowers the rainy months bring, surviving the process is a
little more cumbersome, and slightly less attractive. So, in order
to save yourself (and your look) from water damage, be prepared to wear
the appropriate outerwear, footwear, and of course, carry the
appropriate accessories.

First, the umbrella. We all want to be protected
from the temperate conditions, however must we sacrifice the sake of
our style just to keep dry? The small rickety umbrellas we all carry in
our purses may perform the task, but they are guaranteed to turn out at
the first sign of wind and to completely deter us from any sort of
fashion statement.

However, there are umbrellas out there that can both be functional
and fashionable. You just have to look outside the Target’s and
Walgreen’s we all rush into in emergency rainy situations. I particularly love the bubble umbrellas.
Not only are they adorable, but they protect my entire outfit from
stray rain drops versus some that can only boast perhaps keeping my
hair dry depending on that day’s wind direction.
