how to face the rain in style this spring
In case you missed it as you were locked up at home as most of us now are (or at least we’re hoping you’re staying safe and healthy!), spring has finally come and we can already see it in the change of weather and the flowers blooming in the parks. Even though it’s usually the time to rejoice of the welcoming sunshine, spring also comes with its heavy dose of rain which makes it more difficult to find the appropriate outfit. So whether you’re staying home or still having to face the outside world, we’re giving a few outfit ideas so you can get prepared and plan for rainy days in the future.
Black is the most fitting and appropriate color for the rain as you’re sure not to get water stains on your new clothes and you’ll blend in the gloomy mood perfectly. Slide in rain boots to keep your feet dry when walking in the puddles and add a pair of dark wash jeans and a simple but stylish black tee. A leather biker jacket will also keep you covered from the rain, and keep your essentials in a belt bag so they don’t get soaked from every passing shower.
Patent leather is a great waterproof fabric so why not try vinyl trousers to give your look a punk-rock edge. Layer an oversized bomber over a ribbed jumper to keep you warm when the days are still chilly, and add a pair of Chelsea boots for comfort and sophistication. Bucket hats are still big this season so wear a pearl-embellished satin version for a modern twist on the trend.
No reason why you couldn’t style punchy colors in the rain and a vibrant red trench will definitely lighten up a day without sun. Town down this statement staple with black cigarette trousers and a turtleneck for a chic yet simple look. Add leather boots and a floral tote canvas bag coated in waterproof PVC celebrating spring come rain or shine.
In the rainiest countries just as in the less wet ones, rain jackets have been having a moment and are definitely here to stay. Choose yours in recycled leather and with a quilted lining that locks in warmth. Make use of the utilitarian trend in the rain with a high waisted khaki that is versatile and breathable for the quick change of weather. Pair with a ribbed sweater and combat boots to go for a long walk in the nature.
If you still want to look chic under the rain, go for a modern ribbed midi skirt and a jersey tank top to channel a 90s minimalist silhouette. Just add a camel trench coat to protect your outfit until you get to your next destination. Add a pair of glossy ankle boots with block heels to keep you grounded when it gets slippery and a turquoise leather bag to bring a touch of color to your look while chucking in your essentials for maximum practicality.
