Navigating your wardrobe through Wisconsin’s transition months can prove difficult. One day could be sunny and 60 followed by flurries the next. Since many of us find ourselves traveling on foot or by mo-ped across campus, dressing appropriately for the unpredictable weather is a necessary skill to master. Rainy days can prove themselves to be the most difficult to dress for, but just because it looks gloomy outside doesn’t mean you have to!
While dodging puddles on my way out of lecture I spotted this Fashionista. Her sleek black ensemble accessorized with a bold purple scarf immediately caught my eye. Unlike the majority of people passing by with their hoods up and heads down, she was protected by her black umbrella and unfazed by the precipitation. The Hunter Boots this Fashionista sports keep her feet warm and dry no matter how long her walk to class is. Her black oversized Marc by Marc Jacobs bag is a great place to store her umbrella if it stops raining and will be easily accessible if it starts up again. From head to toe her outfit is a perfect marriage of function and fashion.
Every item down to her rings and nail polish make this look perfect, but her vest is what really marks it ideal for a rainy day in November. The waterproof material keeps her body dry while at the same time tying the glossy materials of the boots and umbrella together seamlessly. It also keeps her warm when encountered by cold gusts of wind and the hood can provide additional protection from the rain. It’s safe to say that this Fashionista has successfully executed her rainy day uniform.
One Simple Change: Have a girl’s night out planned later on in the day? Ditch the vest and umbrella and trade your rain boots in for a pair of killer heeled booties to take the outfit up a notch.
