Even when it’s rainy outside, life goes on. You still go to work, out with your friends, and on errand runs. And you need outfits that are as stylish as they are practical for the cold and the rain. Here’s an example of a utilitarian style that’ll sing effortless chic for rainy days:
1. Start with a plain white button down shirt and a pair of cargo pants: one part chic, one part utility.
2. Toss on a grey scarf for an effortless European inspired look.
3. Layer on a sophisticated black jacket to shield you from the elements. And let that grey scarf peek out from underneath.
4. Accessorize with a clear plastic umbrella (very stylish), a brightly colored handbag (just because it’s grey outside doesn’t mean that you can’t buck the trend), and a pair of flat rainboots. If your pant legs are skinny enough, you can tuck them in to the tops of the rainboots for a svelte (and dry) look.
