From cute coats to unbeatable umbrellas, we’ve polled our community on what they swear by when the weather gets gloomy. So, next time your weather app shows a drizzle ahead, we’ll have you prepared with awesome supplies, sure to brighten any rainy day.
Madewell The Chelsea Rain Boot
For weather-proof boots that go with any outfit, look no further than Madewell’s Chelsea Rain Boot. These short rain boots get the job done without being too tall or clunky. Editor Nikki Carter says these are her “go-to rain boots” for New Orleans rain because they’re “so cute and much less bulky” than a tall pair. Try these out if you’re looking to puddle-jump in style.
Certain Standard French Concession Large Umbrella
Next up, SwearBy Founder Kate Foster Lengyel’s pick for a fun umbrella that makes her “almost happy when it rains.” Not only does this umbrella come in a range of gorgeous colors, it’s “sturdy but light as a feather” and “generously sized.” She also recommends picking up the smaller size, “which is easier to stash in a bag.” Our favorite part? This brand is committed to giving back, and “you can choose where to send a % of your purchase.”
Stutterheim Stockholm Raincoat in White
This minimalist raincoat is another beautiful option for weatherproof outerwear. Editor Alice Kim Blake calls this jacket “the most chic raincoat out there,” and we have to agree! Alice first discovered this fashion staple in Stockholm, and she “fell in love with this raincoat” for its “simplicity and its functionality.” She loves the unique white color but says “you can’t really go wrong” with any hue.
The White Company Rainfall Candle
You know that fresh scent of a cool, springtime rain? This candle is the perfect way to bring dewy vibes inside and transform your space for cozying up, even when it’s not raining out. Editor Brooke Jaffe Swears that this beautifully-packaged candle smells just like “a rainfall you can bring inside.”
Hunter Slim Fit Gloss Duo Rain Boots
Sure, Hunter boots are a well-known classic for rainy days. But these have a modern update, with a slim fit for a less clunky feel, and a matte-gloss combo texture. Editor Bridget Maresca Swears that these are “the best rain boots” because they are “super comfortable, match with any outfit,” and let’s not forget the most important criteria,”keep your feet dry.”
M0851 47 10 Leather Rain jacket
This sleek design combines fashion and function for outerwear that screams Fashion Week. The “highly water-resistant leather” will keep you and your outfit safe from the conditions in a fitted style. Editor Alexandra Loeb puts it best: “leather raincoat. Enough said.”
Davek Duet Extralarge Umbrella for Two
Whether you’re going on a romantic stroll through Central Park in a shower, or you’re looking for the SUV of umbrellas that will claim your well-deserved personal space, this extra-large umbrella is for you (plus one). Celine Cohen says that unlike the “sad, broken, black umbrellas in a NYC trash can” on any rainy day, “this one’s legit.” The durable, foldable material makes for an umbrella that’s “so great!” But, “just don’t lose it!”
