It’s that time of the year again. The old saying April showers brings May flowers is quite true, especially here in the south. Most of the time those showers make a big splash throughout the summer.
Having to wade through all the showers can be tricky at times, especially when it comes to fashion. I have learned to just embrace all those bad hair days that come with the rain and enjoy them with my rainy day style.
Don’t let the bad weather keep you from enjoying your fashion forward days. It’s great to be able to incorporate your favorite rain gear with today’s trends.
Read on to see how we can make those often thought of as unfashionable rainy day styles full of life!
Everyone needs a rain jacket. You can take a rain jacket and apply it to your everyday style by simply dressing it up and pairing the perfect pieces with it.
For example, a wide belt comes in handy when incorporating it in with you rainy day style. It will give the illusion of your rain jacket as a chic and stylish outfit.
I tend to find some really cute rain gear at Burlington Coat Factory and Target.
Look for pops of colors in your rain gear. Don’t be scared to wear something bright and fun on a rainy day.
This will help you add a little style and some life to those dreary days.
Finding a rain jacket, rain boots or rainy day accessories with fun detail can really make a major statement.
For example look for ruffles, prints or a fun lining in or around your boots, coat or even your umbrella.
I love rain boots! They are so much fun to wear. Be sure to find ones that are comfortable, but have a little style to them.
You might want to think work friendly as well. If you need to make your rain boots temporary then you can bring work shoes to change into. It’s about ease and versatility.
Whether it’s a pop of color, print, short boot, long boot, whatever the style of the boot, have fun with them and make them work with your style.
Check out Target, Walmart, Ross, TJ Maxx, on line stores, Burlington Coat Factory, Shoe Station and Rack Room for the latest and most budget friendly rain gear.
Yep, accessorizing plays a big role in your rain attire as well. I know, sounds silly, but it does help.
Now, I am not talking about big chunky jewelry. I am talking about hats, umbrellas and even waterproof hand bags.
These items can come in handy when it comes to those unforgettable rainy days and can make any rainy day style look its fashion best.
Having a bad hair day because of the weather? Throw on your seasonal water repellant rain hat. This can be stylish and keep those untamable flyaway’s at bay.
A cute umbrella can be an accessory. There are so many adorable and cheap umbrellas available at discount stores so there’s really no excuse to stick to basic black.
Buy a couple in your favorite colors if you live in a really rainy area and use them to add color to your look.
I know we have mornings where we hate to climb out of bed because of what the weather entails. We have it in the back of our mind that why should we get fixed up for that special event or even work when we know as soon as we step outside we will look like we just rolled out of the shower.
I say enjoy God’s wonderful creation. Roll out of bed knowing you will conquer these rainy days with style.
It might look gloomy outside but you will be bringing in the sunshine and making a splash with your rainy day style.
