Fashionattitude: How to Look Chic In The Rain

April 14, 2014 • Fashionattitude, Magazine


It’s raining, it’s pouring … and I am snoring! If I see one more Wellington boot I’m going to scream. (Big deal, so your boot is “in a color.”) April showers bring fashion downers. Ladies, just because it is raining it doesn’t mean people can’t see you! Believe it or not there is actually stylish rainwear. I don’t know about you but I plan on looking extremely chic this spring…rain or shine.

1. Burberry Brit Lightweight Iridescent Trenchcoat, $695

I hate to follow the crowd and turn to Burberry for rain gear, but I have to admit they know what they’re doing. This bright cheery blue caught my eye and I need a short and lightweight trench for warmer days.

2. Gucci Rubber Waterproof Rain Boot, $450

There’s no doubt, I’ll look good coming and going with these tall boots, especially with the horse bit detail at my heels.

3. Junya Watanabe “Cape” Trenchcoat, $1675

I’ll look chic when I toss on this cape style trench coat for sudden showers. And I’ll let you in on a little secret. This coat can also be worn as a tradition trench coat, so it’s like getting 2 coats in one. I know everyone will think I have 2 different coats.

4. Sunday Afternoons Oregon Cloudbursts Rain Hat, $48

Believe it or not, I don’t always wear a designer label. This hat is for people who actually hike up mountains. Needless to say, I will never be caught in the wilderness, but the hat is stylish enough for the city. I will simply remove the label.

5. Lanvin Face-print Umbrella, $140

The faces illustrated by Alber Elbaz on this Lanvin umbrella make me smile. They will also remind everyone around me that someone is always watching.

6. Valentino Rockstud Rubber Rain Boot, $395

Why not round out my Valentino Rock Stud shoe collection with these rubber rain boots? Besides, I will need a casual pair of rain boots, too.
