From spring downpours to summer drizzles and winter storms, the key to dressing well in bad weather is to make sure that you have the best waterproof gear. A good raincoat, decent rainboots, and a stylish umbrella are the ultimate wet weather accessories, here are some more tips on how to dress for those damp and dreary days...
Quality Rain Boots
Good footwear is one of the most important elements for staying stylish, safe, and dry. There's nothing that will dampen your spirit (and your style) like stepping out and getting wet feet. Rain boots have come a long way since their initial conception and now these formerly countrified shoes come with an urban edge and designer style. Pick a pair of chic men's black boots or even a pair of brown or green ankle boots and you have a rainboot style that is truly versatile. Ankle rain boots cut in a Chelsea style can look great when paired with business casual clothes and will also look slick when matched with a looser style.
A Great Coat
Your choice of raincoat can make or break your wet weather style. From perfectly cut hooded parkas to trench coats and puffer jackets, there are plenty of different raincoat styles out there that go beyond your basic mac. A parker is a good winter choice as it can be both casual and slightly more formal if you pick one with a muted color scheme. If you are seeking something with a more street edge, then the puffer invites you to embrace your own style especially if you select a puffer or quilted jacket that comes in statement shades. In the lighter seasons, you can opt for a windbreaker with detailed features and a classic cut. Make sure that whatever raincoat or jacket you choose, that you pick one made from proven waterproof materials.
For those who are serious about getting out in the rain but retaining their style, water-repellent pants or flash dry pants are your best choice. Jeans will get damp and heavy in wet weather and will make for an uncomfortable day ahead. Light chinos can dry fast but really, you want to find a pair of stylish pants that pass as regular casual trews but are water repellent. Cargo pants in a paler shade will bring a European edge to your look, especially when paired with white sneakers or black ankle boots, a casual tucked-in sweater and a timeless black lightweight waterproof coat.
Rainy day accessories can go beyond the basics of a black umbrella. In fact, pick a good raincoat with a hood or a cap or hat and you can swerve the inconvenience of carting around an umbrella altogether. Umbrellas work for formal affairs but for those who are interested in a more casual look, you can pick a cap or woollen hat depending on the season. A cap always looks great paired with a puffer jacket (especially if you have some crossover in color). For those colder days, you can even find a fleece cap that will create an amazing mesh of styles. A fleece cap will also look great with a parka and can even be worn with a trench for a look that straddles the line between work and play. Colder wet weather days may also call for gloves and a scarf. Go simple with the scarf and if you can find a pair of winterized waterproof gloves, they will work much better in wet weather than the fleece kind.
Wet weather can strike throughout the year and having the bare essentials to face the storm can ensure that you don't get hemmed in when it comes to style. In the summer months, a lightweight raincoat, cropped quick-drying cargo pants, and cap can carry you through. Winter weather will call for a heavier parka or thick quilted waterproof coat, heavier duty ski style pants or water-repellant pants, and all those winter accessories like a beanie hat, scarf, gloves, and warm layers underneath. Whatever the season, you can count on a solid pair of men's ankle boots to carry you through.
