Rainy May days got you down? Don’t worry, you can still wear some super cute outfits—rain boots, umbrella, jacket and all—that might actually have you looking forward to the wet weather. Whether you want to keep things sophisticated in a classic raincoat or go for a sporty look, style expert Alexis Honce shares all the rain gear options for you to stay dry and look super chic at the same time. 

Raincoat Chic

Invest in a waterproof jacket that you can keep in your closet forever. We love this one from Canada Goose because it’s packable and protects you against all kinds of elements including heavy rain and wind. TIP: Look for waterproof instead of water-resistant to get the full benefit against those stormy days. Add a pop of colour with a textured polo and a leather duffle bag, which can easily be wiped down after a day in the rain.

Cute Umbrella

Want to go all out on a rainy day? This is the look for you. The umbrella is an essential accessory, and we love this chic option from Nordstrom. Switch up your rain jacket with a quilted water-resistant shacket that is really versatile and can take you from season to season. TIP: If you want to do the one colour head-to-toe look, pick a colour that brings you joy!

Bright and Fresh

When it’s dark and stormy outside, bring out your most vibrant rain gear to brighten your mood! A rain jacket is an essential piece in your everyday wardrobe, but it doesn’t have to be boring. Look for functional details like toggle closures on the wrist and waist to keep the rain out, and a hood and mesh on the inside to create venting during those warmer rainy days.  If you are planning to be outside for the day, consider the fabrics in your accessories.
