After spending wayyy too many hours glued to The Weather Channel last week, we were all stocked up on water bottles, canned food, candles, batteries… our hurricane preparedness kits were FULL in preparation. And just when we thought all this weather craziness was behind us, THIS (see above) happens. Boo.
Of course, this less-than-stellar forecast stands no match again NY’s Fashion Week, which is kicking off tonight with Fashion’s Night Out, rain-be-darned. We feel you though… the wet dog look is NOT the best accent to that outfit you mentally prepared a few weeks ago. OK, maybe a few months ago, but who’s counting?! So… what’s a girl to do?
Well, we can’t help you with that fresh blow out, but we did put together some of our fave styles for your pending rainy day (and night!) adventures. Take a look!
First up, outerwear. We are loving this timeless trench by French Connection. A trench will always keep you dry and more importantly, chic! Available at Bloomie’s and just as cute on non-rainy days as well – total score 🙂
Next, is the right pair of shoes. There’s nothing worse than getting stuck in the rain and finding puddles in your shoes (instead of on the sidewalk where they belong!). Luckily, there’s no need to sacrifice fashion for comfort in this department. These lace-up rain boots by Chooka are trendy but will still keep your tootsies dry. We’re loving the way olive green goes with all of our Fall neutrals right now too!
And, of course, the umbrella. Umbrellas are the perfect way to add a POP of color to any outfit on a rainy, gray day. So why not opt for one like this from GiftCraft Inc.? It’s sure to brighten up anyone’s day!
And, last but not least (enter shameless Fashion Night Out plug here)… we’ve teamed up with DSW and will be at their Union Square location tonight for some great music, discounts, and freebies. Gunna be in the area? Come by and say hi – we’ll be there rain or shine 🙂
Cheers to staying dry (and stylish)!
