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.
