How to Create a Stylish Rainy Day Outfit

Chic Rainy Day Wear

I’m here in New York this week and it’s been rainy and chilly compared to the weather I left at home in Southern California. Ever since watching Anne Hataway’s “coat montage” in The Devil Wears Prada, I’ve always said I wish I lived somewhere I could layer and wear more coats. Since it’s been rainy here, I thought a post on stylish rainy day wear was appropriate.

The first and core part of any rainy day ensemble is a trench coat. As a stylist, this is a basic core wardrobe essential that I believe everyone needs to have in their closet. It’s a timeless, classic coat that can be dressed up or down. I would recommend spending a bit more on a trench because it’s something you will have forever if you purchase a high-qualitly brand. There is trench for everyone’s budget. Check out Ralph Lauren’s Eudroa trench coat {$179} for a classic white option this spring.

What is rainy day wear with out rain boots? I must admit living in Southern California I don’t have much need for them, so I never owned a pair until this year. Our winter was plenty rainy and I have gotten so much use out of my boots and just have fun wearing them. Try a pair of Hunter’s Original tall boot {$115} in the color of the year, turquoise. Not only will your feet stay warm and dry but you will add a fun pop of color to your outfit.

A scarf is not only a great layering piece to protect you against the elements but can adds another fun dimension to your overall look. Try Virginia Johnson’s beetle print scarf {$190} for an understated chic addition to your rainy day look.

When it’s rainy it’s great to have a large stylish tote so your hands can be free, especially if you need to carry an umbrella around or just quickly run in from the rain. I love Burberry’s drawstring tote {$550}. It’s a perfect neutral color that will go with a lot in your wardrobe.

Add a fun statement piece of jewelry since most people will not be seeing what you are wearing under your coat. Check out Kara by Kara Ross cocktail ring {$150}. This is a great versatile piece that can be worn with many other options.

Have fun creating your rainy day outfits. Just because it is raining and gloomy outside does not mean your wardrobe has to mimic the weather! If you have any questions or need styling advice feel free to contact me directly.
