Rainy Day Style



The lovely month of May is officially here! While we have been teased with June-like temperatures early this season, we also had our fair share of rain, which can make for tricky style choices. Many people think of rain gear as an afterthought—but I see it as an opportunity to have a little fun with your wardrobe.

What to wear: When it comes to dressing for rain, I like to keep things comfortable and simple: lightweight cashmere sweater, soft denim pant, comfortable socks, and a colorful scarf to add a pop of color.

Tip: Try wearing a scarf in your hair for a fuss-free up-do. You could wrap it around a top knot or try this the trendy turban-style wrap.

How to accessorize:

1. Stay classic and versatile with a trench coat. The iconic coat can be worn for years if you find one with the right fit. If you’re shopping for a traditional style trench, be sure to invest in one that’s well made. If you’re looking to wear a style that is very “now”, try a military inspired trench, or a sleeveless trench.

Left to right, top row: Collarless panel trench by Topshop, A-line cotton trench by Mango, Classic trench by Mango. Bottom row: Sleeveless trench from ModCloth, Twill trench from French Connection, Pink trench from Romwe.

2. Bring some cheer to rainy days with a graphic umbrella. They come in so many great prints and patterns. I keep a brightly patterned compact umbrella in my purse and have a large, classic umbrella for outdoor adventures and events.

Clockwise from top left: Clear bubble umbrella from Urban Outfitters, Orange Orla Kiely, Zebra print by Scalamandre, Leopard umbrella from J. Crew, David David geometric-print umbrella.

3. Tromp through puddles in style with galoshes that complement your wardrobe. Hunter boots can be worn into the early winter months with the proper inserts, making them a smart purchase for Minnesotans. I love the stylish cropped rain boot for a lightweight option.

Clockwise from top left: Vivienne Westwood tassel booties, Green Loeffler Randall boots, Metallic Hunter boots, Citrus Tretorn boots, Hunter cloth boots, Charlie rain boots from Anthropologie.

Bring on thunderstorm season!
