When it’s cold and rainy outside the last thing we want to do as college students is trek across campus to make it to class. As soon as you start thinking about what you’re going to wear for the rainy day ahead, staying in your warm sweats sounds the most appealing. Today’s Fashionisto color blocks with white, gray, black and a bold rain jacket.
Instead of opting for baggy sweatpants that will drag in the rain, choose a pair of darkwash jeans similar to this pair from American Appareal. Refrain from any light colored paints, especially khaki, a darker wash is perfect for rainy days because it shows less rain spots. Since rainboots can be cumbersome, take a hint from this Fashionisto and pair your jeans with high-tops.
A dependable rain jacket is essential for surviving rainy days on campus. Instead of sticking to a basic black. Today’s Fashionisto chooses a bright red jacket, similar to this one from Urban Outfitters. Red breaks up the tones of black and prevents his outfit from becoming monotonous. If you’re not comfortable with vibrant colors, opt for a classic trench coat. This classic coat can take any outfit from a basic look to old Hollywood glamour.
When your motivation for schoolwork starts to dwindle and the cold rain isn’t helping, take the time to put together a real outfit. The weather may not give you something to smile about, but the compliments you receive for your stylish outfit sure will.
