April showers are a comin’. Before those gorgeous May flowers can go into full bloom, we need to endure more than a few soggy days, but don’t let the weather rain on your stylish parade. Put some spring in your step, even when it’s gloomy out, by sporting one of these celebrity-inspired rainy day outfit ideas.
Don’t cancel that New York City shopping trip. Instead, step on and off the LIRR in sturdy, flat waterproof combat boots, like these from Stuart Weitzman, that will keep your feet warm, dry and stylish. Protect the bottom of your jeans from getting damaged by cuffing them just above the ankle. A black crewneck, raincoat and fedora are comfortable and downtown chic, and an orange tote adds a sunny touch. Cute boy to hold your umbrella optional, but highly recommended.
At a Ballgame
Not even a little rain can stop local boy Steve Matz, one-time Pulse cover boy Matt Harvey and the rest of the Mets pitching staff from mowing down hitters. If the forecast calls for a sprinkle and your seats aren’t under an awning, plan to stay dry in a bright, sporty topper. Use your favorite scarf as a headband to guarantee a good hair day. Brands like Ann Taylor have some great choices.
At the Office
This season, expect the unexpected when it comes to stripes—the timeless pattern got a facelift. Get in on the trend, and upgrade your basic beige trench while you’re at it, by reaching for a striped trench during a soggy workweek. Knee-high black leather boots over slim black pants are commute-friendly and office-appropriate.
