Staying Chic on a Rainy Day

guest post by Lorraine K. Lee

Although April showers are approaching, there’s no reason to feel gloomy. Check out these reinvented classics that will help you stay fashionable in rain (and shine!). Rainy days just got a little bit brighter. 

Ponchos: a thing of the past

RainRaps are a welcome alternative to the typical ponchos and jackets that are often less-than-flattering. They come in vibrant color combinations such as pink and orange or navy and turquoise, as well as darker tones like brown and bronze or black and gray – and they’re reversible, too. RainRaps are also functional, with a water-resistant layer and lightweight fabric that allows you to easily stow it away in your bag once the sun comes out. 

Walk with a spring in your step

On the days where rain is lighter, try switching out your heavy rainboots for Neiman Marcus’ lace-front rubber/mesh loafer. Their rubber lining and soles will keep your feet dry and comfortable. They even come in five different colors!

Lastly, complete your outfit with a scarf by Silk by Bryony on those cooler spring days. Each scarf, made of 100 percent habotai silk, is sure to turn heads. British-born photographer Bryony Shearmur takes her outdoor photographs and hand-prints them on silk scarves, topping them off with her signature. Whether it’s a photo of cherry blossoms or the Los Angeles skyline, these limited edition, gorgeous pieces of art are sure to have a design that pleases even the pickiest of fashionistas.
