Since this rain seems to show no sign of letting up here in DC, I’ve pulled together a few rainy day essentials.
A trench coat is always classic and so much more sophisticated and stylish than a sporty rain jacket. This one from L.L. Bean is a steal and was featured in In Style.
These L.L. Bean coastal skimmers are perfect because they are stylish enough to wear around town yet are completely waterproof. They are also perfect for wearing during a rainy commute then stowing under your desk – much more discreet than wellies.
A bright umbrella is the perfect way to keep those rainy day blues away.
At the top of my wish list right now, a pair of hot pink Hunter rain boots… a little cliche perhaps, but absolutely adorable and perfect for perking up those winter neutrals.
