LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Where There Is Rain, There Is Layering

Let's Hear it for the Boys

Rain, rain, go away. Growing up, that was the song we sang for the sun to return. Although I personally still prefer sunny days, there are some positive fashion alternatives to the dreaded drizzle days. You can finally pull out that pair of Burberry rain boots, or repel the raindrops with your super cute bubble umbrella.

The tricky thing about summer rain is dressing for protection yet still keeping yourself cool. I think the correct way to tackle this is to have a balance. Decide whether you will wear a raincoat or rain boots; whether you will protect with a poncho or an umbrella. The great thing about this Fashionisto is he understands the importance of balance, and takes this opportunity to stay stylish on this gloomy day. His way of keeping dry is light layers, with a basic white tee, grey hooded jacket and denim Hollister Co. jacket.

Relaxed and easy going is his aim. He pairs these layers with khaki pants and classic white Converse sneakers. His accessories include a brown cross-body bag, for that classic college guy look. A brown Michael Kors iPad case and a gold Fossil watch with a black face.This Fashionisto decides on a blue and white striped umbrella for protection—because what fun is rain without an umbrella for personality.

Hint: Light layers on rainy days can be accomplished with a basic shirt light jacket and denim jacket or raincoat. When it comes to shoes, play it casual. A pair of tennis, or slip ons will do the trick.
