It seems like many people don’t talk about what to wear on rainy days. Mostly because on rainy days, people choose to stay indoors (we don’t blame you). On separate occasions, some people have to venture out into the weather and run some errands, start the day at work, or celebrate a birthday party. While the rain is tricky to style around with, we have some solutions here at Fashom that will hopefully better your style on a mucky and gloomy day like so. April is approaching, and as we all know, it is prone to being the rainiest month. Let’s kick off our rainy day essentials to keep you stylish and dry. Photo credit to @dresscoralynn above.
1. Striped Shirt
The simple striped shirt can never steer you in the wrong direction when it comes to casual wear in the rain. It’s the type of shirt that becomes your best friend when situations like this occur; it can get damaged, ripped, or drenched in the downpour, but it’ll always be the perfect choice for when it comes to rainy days. On top of all of this, it is super casual, fashionable and can literally go with any outfit. The casual striped shirt can never do you wrong. We have very similar picks at Fashom such as our Natural Life Striped Hi Lo Sweater or V-Neck Sweater and our Skies are Blue Striped Knit Top.
2. Vests Upon Vests
With your accessorized umbrella of course, vests are the best way to keep dry during the rainy seasons. April is a month of on and off downpours, and with vests you can look cute and fashionable as well as keep yourself warm and dry. Vests allow you to layer your outfit with a sweater, hoodie, or long sleeve tee underneath to create the ultimate rain shield. We have similar styles at Fashom such as our Skies are Blue Soft Corduroy Vest, which is also filled with cute polka dots all over!
3. Bomber/Rain Jacket
Instead of the bland and boring raincoats, try a bomber styled jacket with wick protection from the rain. These jackets are almost considered raincoats because when water hits them, it wicks right off. The silhouette is super flattering to any body type because with the jaw string waist, it can give a curvature to the look. Put on your favorite rain boots and strut in the rain with this stylish pick. We have very similar outerwear at Fashom such as our Staccato Draw String Utility Coat and our Fate Drape Parka Coat.
4. Signature Boots
Every fashion wearer needs a pair of nice rain boots. Firm fitted boots keep you looking sleek and chic in the rain. The signature red rain boots help keep your rain day ‘fit colorful and bold. If you want to stay fashionable while you have to run out in the rain, slim fitted and bright red rain boots are the way to go. A most recent trend are ankle length rain boots, which are also super stylish. This trend has surpassed throughout major cities such as New York, Philly, and Boston; and they’re super cute. They produce the illusion on booties so you can also pair these with an every day outfit.
5. Sleek Black Pants
So we have the rain boots, a rain jacket, vests, and shirt, now it’s time to talk pants. The simplest way to finish your rainy day outfit is to add a pair of sleek black pants. Black is the easiest to tame when it rains because droplets are hidden in the material (if you spill something on you too, it’s not as noticeable as opposed to denim and brighter colors). Black pants are easy to deal with when it rains. We have some nice black pants at FASHOM such as our RD Style Black Leggings and our Faux Leather Panel Leggings. Easy to tame and stylish at the same time.
