Winter 2009 Lookbook: How to Look Slick in the Rain

December 22nd, 2009

Pictured: Classic Stripe Tissue Tee | $32.50 at J Crew, Straight Jean | $29.50 at American Eagle, Knitted Cowl Neck Top | $70 at Topshop, Mallory Twill Bomber | $63.50 at Delias, Clear Bubble Stick Umbrella | $16.99 at Target, Jeffrey Campbell Over the Knee Rainboots | $98 at Urban Outfitters.

Just because it’s raining out doesn’t mean that your need to water down your sense of style.  Simply adjust to the weather by layering and finishing off the look with a sleek umbrella and pair of rainboots.  Layers of clothing will keep you cozy, and the rain gear will keep you dry.  Here’s how to look slick, even when it’s raining out:

1. Start off your look with a simple foundation: a horizontal striped tee and a pair of straight leg jeans.
2.  Layer a cozy cowl neck sweater on top of the horizontal striped tee, letting the sleeved tee peek out from under the sweater.
3. In warmer climates, all you need is a light jacket to finish off this outfit.  In cooler climates, try a warmer coat in a fabric like wool or cashmere.  Or alternatively, with either climate, try a trench-style raincoat. 
4. Complete the look with your rain gear: a pair of over the knee rainboots (a silhouette that’s very in right now) and a clear bubble umbrella.

    Recently I gave my girlfriend a Senz umbrella. These umbrellas can withstand much stronger winds than your average umbrella.

    I do like the clear bubble umbrella, but I think it doesn’t stand a chance in something other than a mild winter breeze. The Senz umbrellas come in 7 colors (not counting black).

    No affiliation, just a satisfied customer :-)

    I have a pair of wellies, but they just NEVER get used! I’d sub the rainboots for leather knee-high boots.

    If you don’t want to pay $98, do a search on “hip waders”. I found these:
