Everyone hates those mornings – you get up, roll over in your bed, look out the window and it’s pouring rain. It’s the worst feeling in the world. But, we can’t let the rain stop us from getting to class, internships and work. As tempting as it is to let the rain dictate your outfit choices, instead beat the weather and choose a stylish outfit that’s still practical for the downpour.
If you’re struggling to come out with an ensemble for these dreary days, look to this Fashionista for inspiration. Her floral, jersey dress is comfortable but stylish for a rainy Boston morning. The darker floral is a good palette for the winter months and the mid-thigh hem length is conservative enough for class or work while still being age appropriate. She smartly cinched the dress in at the waist with a plain and versatile black leather belt. To keep warm in the chilly rain, she paired the navy dress with a heathered grey cardigan.
Her light grey tights are a perfect addition to the outfit as well – the lighter color coordinates with the grey of her sweater and the muted pattern of her dress. And to keep her feet dry in the wet weather, she added dark maroon socks with her stylish rain boots. The socks add a bright pop of color in the relatively monochromatic outfit and the navy rain boots are super trendy and functional. And as a bonus, they don’t even look like rain boots!
One simple change: Swap the cardigan for a denim vest, ditch the tights and add a pair of embellished sandals, and you’re ready for a summer night out.
