Spring Fashion: Rainy Day Essentials
Spring is coming up quick and that means April showers. Rainy days can be soothing and relaxing – if you’re indoors that its. For ladies that are on the go, figuring out what to wear can seem difficult and we don’t want to get stuck in the rain wearing our expensive silk or cashmere top. To make way for spring flowers, we first have to put up with some clouds – but it doesn’t mean our outfits have to be bland! We’ve curated some rainy-day fashion essentials so you’re ready to go the next time the forecast calls for gray skies.
The Classic Trench Coat
On your way to work? Look smart and sophisticated wearing a classic trench coat. For many of us, the classic Burberry trench coat is out of our price range. Luckily, we can still get that classic tan color trench at our favorite department stores and get the same effect. With belting options and convenient pockets, you’ll be sure to find one that fits your silhouette and outerwear needs.
For the office, trench coats are the perfect accessory to take your work look to the next level. The lapels on the side bring attention to the face and it’s a great opportunity to bring out a light and breathable turtle-neck sweater for those cool spring mornings. Pair this with navy high-waisted and cropped dress pants, and closed-toed shoes. A bright colored patent leather loafer will give you spring vibes without the rainy-day headache.
If you’re looking to spice up your rainy-day outerwear, choose a vibrant trench or raincoat that is sure to pop.
When it comes to prepping for the springtime, we need to be ready for the elements. With surprise snow, slush, and rain, springtime is that awkward time of year that leaves us feeling chilly in the morning, but warm in the afternoon. Just like the beginning of the fall season, it’s always a good idea to layer up before heading out of the house, so yes grab that cardigan and scarf, you’ll need it for that coffee run before work.
To keep your outfit from looking too wintery, make sure to stick to iconic spring color palettes and cuts. Pastels are always in during spring and make accessorizing simple. A pastel-colored or floral printed scarf is a chic accessory that you’ll never get tired of. Wearing a long-sleeved top? Choose a fun pattern and layer with a neutral-toned oversized cardigan for those early spring days.
Ankle-Length Rain Boots
Stepped off the curb into a puddle? Have to walk a few extra blocks for that oh so necessary lunch-time break? With ordinary shoes, this might seem out of the question. Yes, traditional mid-calf rainboots are great, but we’re looking for a change this season. For those times of all-day drizzle and mist, an ankle rain boot will do just the trick. Ankle boots give us the best of both worlds because they let us wear our favorite cropped pants and look cute with so many outfits that we can wear to work and on the weekends. With different water-repelling materials to choose from, you can find a shiny PVC boot or a subtle matte pair to match your rainy-day mood.
