It may be Pi Day but this weather is far from sweet. The jacket-less days we had over the weekend are gone, at least for now, but that doesn’t have to stop you from showing off your impeccable wardrobe. Here are a few easy ways to keep an outfit chic and soggy-free.
Stick to Crossbodys
While statement bucket totes and backpacks are all trendy right now, the rain will ensure that your favorite accessories become more soaked than stylish. Using a crossbody will keep things close, dry underneath your umbrella or safe beneath your trench. No bulkiness added.
Go for the Investment-Worthy All-Weather Boots
I love saving money, but buying a cheap pair of rainboots isn’t always the bes tidea. Believe me, I’ve been forced walk in puddle-filled shoes a few times. Take this as an opportunity for an investment and break out the better boots on a rainy day. (Here are my Michael Kors wellies, which are actually on sale, if you’re in a shopping mood!)
Save the Flares and Wide-Leg Pants
Unless you’re going for a cropped option, wearing flared jeans or wide leg pants is just asking to get wet – no matter how high your heels are. (And I don’t recommend wearing heels in the rain.) Break out your favorite skinny, straight-leg or ankle-length bottoms for something chic, simple and maybe even weather-proof.
Grab the Raincoat AND an Umbrella
It may sound silly but we all know a good hair day can be the most important part of any outfit. Protect it. You didn’t spend 20 min. straightening and up to an hour styling just so it can get ruined the second you step out the door. Pick a rain jacket with a hood and an umbrella to ensure you stay dry. (As an added bonus, this should also keep you from getting sick!)
