Spring is right around the corner and we all know what that means: slush-covered sidewalks and rainy days. There is nothing worse than getting caught in the rain and getting completely drenched, so make sure you’re well equipped this year! Make the most of the gloomy, cloudy weather with cute rain gear and look fashion forward while you stay bone dry. Before you know it, you’ll be looking forward to torrential downpour!
1. A massive trend that is happening in SS14 is the pink jacket. Looking to make your raincoat a little more fashion forward? Opt for this light pink number from Urban Outfitters to keep things light on a cloudy day. Coincidence & Chance Cutest Rain Slicker Jacket, $79, available at Urban Outfitters .
2. Here is a little twist on the classic Hunter Boots for $230. They will ensure your feet stay dry in those spring puddles, but you’ll still look great! Hunter Boots Regent Apsley Rainboots, $230 at Hunter Boots.
3. Adding a fun umbrella to your rainy wardrobe is a great way to stand out while keeping your hair and makeup intact. The one I’ve provided here is a 60s mod take on the umbrella by Hunter Boots, but there are so many fabulous ones out there! Another great place to look for umbrellas is Topshop, who always have unique and creative designs. Hunter Boots Clear Bubble Umbrella, $48 available at Hunter Boots.
4. Finish off your spring outfit with a great bag, like the Classic Q Lil Ukita Purse from Marc by Marc Jacobs. Go for a lighter colour for spring like this light grey version I’ve provided. Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Lil Ukita Purse, $428 available at Marc Jacobs.
