April Showers: Sleek Looks for Rainy Days

By  April 01, 2013

April showers are on the way. Don’t let a rainy day ruin your style. It’s easy to let your style take a hiatus when the rain clouds arrive, but I say why not have a little fun. There’s a rainy boot solution out there to work with most every wardrobe.

If you work in a corporate setting, I advise packing some pumps and slipping on a sophisticated boot like this one (TheSak.com) for the morning commute. You won’t look silly when you arrive with dry feet. And if anyone catches you on the subway you won’t look a bit like a slacker.

Playful style is ideal for anyone that works from home. Let’s say you have to run the kids to the bus stop and then back. Well, you might as well have something fun on your feet like these fish boots from Target. Pair with a bright cardigan and you’ll stomp in the puddles alongside your kids!

For creative environments, you can get a little trendier. If you work in fashion or advertising, you can certainly rock this pair of rock-and-roll boots from Michael Kors. They bring a bit of motorcycle chic into a day otherwise dampened by gray skies. Pair them with a trim legging or skinny jean and a hip anorak jacket.

Let’s say its really pouring and you’ve got a huge day of errands and meetings. Remember, there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad fashion choices. Here’s my advice: put together a look around a knee-high boot like this one from Hunter. With the wedge heel and classic black color you can’t go wrong. Add a sleek trench coat and a retro umbrella and you’ll be jumping into the puddles – not avoiding them.
