Fall Winter Fashion Formula #8: Effortless Rainy Day Chic

Fall Winter Fashion Formula #8: Effortless Rainy Day Chic
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

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.

    I know this might sound weird, but I tend to wear dresses on rainy days. There are 2 reasons: 1. I don’t get any pants legs wet 2. I can automatically wear boots and not have to change my shoes all day. The added bonus, whenever I wear a dress it seems to perk up my attitude and sometimes you need a little boost when it’s a yucky wet rainy day.

    Love the site!

    Oh, if only I could think rain – we got 6 inches of SNOW last night! I tend to wear skirts when it rains as I hate dragging my pant hems in the puddles, and don’t generally tuck into my boots.

    I love the jacket, but it’s so expensive! Are there any cheaper versions that are still wool?

    Since Winter is coming to a close, it’s going to be tough to find a great looking wool jacket in stores now. I’d check J Crew and Banana Republic come Fall for something close to this jacket. In the meantime, Twelve by Twelve has a cheap chic take on the double breasted black coat (their Jewel Button Jacket) for only $38.
