June may mark the start of summer, but for most of us, it’s not the end of the rainy season. What’s the secret to a great summery rainy day look? As always - layers. Your foundation should feel seasonally appropriate - but you can be prepared to stay out of the rain with a few glamourous rainy day accessories. Here’s how to get our East Coast prep version of the summery rainy day look:
1. Start with a classic preppy foundation - a pair of nantucket reds with a vibrant green blouse. The pink and green combo definitely feels feminine - but with a dose of American Trad.
2. Slip on your trenchcoat. No need to go fancy here - a classic double breasted style in a putty color will do. (Bonus points for playing with color here though!)
3. It’s raining out - so grab your wellies (gold for a little glamour) and your umbrella before you hit the road.
