WHAT TO WEAR: Rainy Days

What to Wear

Despite a torrential downpour last week, this Fashionista didn’t let a little water ruin her style. While most students on campus dread the rain, today’s Fashionista embraces it and looks forward to dressing in this favorite rainy day outfit.

The most essential rainy day item for this Fashionista begins with the perfect trench coat. While many think an umbrella is the most vital piece to a rainy day outfit, this Fashionista disagrees. The wind in Boston can be fearsome thing to behold and after many blown away or broken umbrellas, she relies heavily on a sturdy waxed trench coat to keep her dry. This Fashionista also suggests getting one with a detachable hood for those brave souls who wish to forgo an umbrella completely—just like her. Give this London Fog trench coat a shot if you want to ditch your umbrella altogether.

The next step in perfecting the ideal rainy day outfit entails picking out rain boots. This Fashionista and avid dancer admittedly loves to splash around the puddles along the Charles River Esplanade and opts for tall rain boots that go up to her knees. Today’s Fashionista swears by her glossy Aldo rain boots to keep her feet dry while she happily dances in the rain.

April showers bring May flowers, but they also inspired this Fashionista to bring out one of her most colorful pair of pants. To make the day a little bit brighter, today’s Fashionista decided to wear her aqua colored pants to match her favorite summer flower, the hydrangea, which she can’t wait to see bloom around the city soon. Check out these pink pants or these yellow pants if tulips and sunflowers are more to your liking.

One Simple Change: This rainy day outfit could easily be transformed into the perfect outfit for running weekend errands around the city on a sunny day. Swap the rain boots for a pair of sneakers, like this cute pair from Keds, and keep the trench unbuttoned and tied in the back to show off this fun spring T-shirt.
