Don't let the drizzly weather put a damper on your style. These rainy-day styling tips make April showers a little easier to bear. Counter a girly polka-dot dress ($72 at Topshop) with a tailored Carven jacket ($1215 at LaGarconne). Classic black rain boots ($66 at Topshop) and a subtly patterned black Gucci umbrella ($395 at Net-a-Porter) make the look rain-ready, while a statement necklace by Erickson Beamon ($656 at ForwardForward) is sure to add a dose of glam to the dreary day.
A strong red shade is perfect for standing out against the gray weather, so we paired Topshop's red trousers ($76 at Topshop) with a silky Chalayan blouse ($248 at LaGarconne) and Sonia Rykiel's leopard-spotted parka ($380 at Net-a-Porter). For a step-up from plain rain boots, we tried Burberry's strap-detailed booties ($375 at Net-a-Porter). A funky printed umbrella ($30 at Topshop) plays on the red pants and still works with the printed jacket.
We love a navy-and-yellow combination, so we paired Rachel Comey's slit-skirt sundress ($475 at ForwardForward) with Altuzarra's covetable yellow rain parka ($2295 at Net-a-Porter). A sleek rubberized tote from Zara ($100 at Zara) is perfect for a damp day, and a checked Burberry umbrella ($225 at Net-a-Porter) picks up the navy blue hues.
For a sporty rainy-day look, we paired a see-through white parka ($72 at Topshop ) with a striped cotton tank ($30 at J.Crew ) and Band of Outsiders soft belted trousers ($495 at LaGarconne). Navy blue booties by Kenneth Cole Reaction ($39 at Zappos) work with the blue top, and a clear umbrella by Tina T ($20 at compliments the shiny texture of the jacket.
A sturdy trenchcoat is a rainy day must-have. We paired APC's belted trench ($500 at APC) with a flouncy white dress ($58 at Topshop) and Burberry's classic equestrian-style rain boots ($395 at Net-a-Porter). A simple elephant charm necklace ($35 at J.Crew) adds a little sparkle. A leopard-print umbrella ($30 at Topshop) is subtle enough to lend a playful touch without overwhelming the ensemble.
