Rain rain won’t go away, so you might as well get prepared. And by prepared we don’t just mean equipping yourself with rain gear that just does the necessary task of keeping you dry. We’re thinking of the stuff that both helps you shed the rain while also maintaining a sharp look. We know that we’ve been guilty of the opposite; donning threads that protect from the weather but leave us feeling like a traffic cone. But it really doesn’t have to be that way.
Instead of just gritting your teeth and throwing on that jacket you hate, we’ve come up with some alternatives. From a classic rain jacket to a top of the line umbrella and a pair of Chelsea boot inspired rain shoes, these items will be sure to keep you both dry and sharp no matter how heavy the rain is coming down around you. Whether they provide a bit of inspiration or end up hanging in your wardrobe, we hope this collection will help you last out the rest of the rainy and cold season.
