There isn’t a person out there who likes to be caught in the rain unaware. But, if you’ve been diligent in watching the weather and know that there’s a storm brewing, you may want to prepare your outfit for the inevitable downpour.

1. Layers

This really doesn’t need much explaining. When it’s going to be cold and wet, you’re going to want to want to keep yourself warm first and foremost. Layering not only helps to prevent you from wearing a soaking wet outfit all day, but it is also an extremely trendy fashion statement. Try pairing a sweater with a cargo jacket and accessorize with a scarf and calf high boots to keep the soggy weather out.

2. Beanies

Beanies, in my opinion will never go out of style. While there are days when you may not want to wear them, they’re a great way to keep your hair from getting soaked through and will keep your head nice and toasty warm. Beanies can be found in countless colors, patterns, and even weights. Pairing a thick knit beanie with a sweater dress is a classic and fashionable look.

3. Hats

Just like beanies, hats of all kinds such as an oversized fedora are extremely useful when it’s raining. This is especially true if you find yourself out in the rain without an umbrella. Try a fedora with a rich jewel tone to help liven up your outfit.

4. Cargo Jackets or oversized jackets

Oversized is in right now, an oversized cargo jacket or other stylish jacket not only will keep out the rain, it’ll give your chosen outfit a little bit of a much needed edge. Paired with jeans and a comfortable pair of heels, a cargo jacket can set off your look.

5. Bring out your tights

If you absolutely must wear a dress to work, you may want to consider wearing tights or stockings. They’re a wonderful and tasteful way of keeping your legs warm in a rain storm. Tights can also pair well with a jacket and a scarf. However, if you’re going to wear tights or stockings to your workplace, it is best to keep it casual. Steer clear of any vibrant or off-putting colors that may not be suited to the workplace. If you’re out and about for the day, all bets are off, feel free to accessorize your outfit with your favorite pair of tights or leggings.

6. Rain boots

There is nothing more satisfying that keeping your feet warm and dry while in the rain. Galoshes are no longer just a rubbery mess that you remember as a child. There are many different styles of boots that lend themselves well to just about any fashion statement you can think of.

8. Sweater dresses

Sweater dresses are a great way to stay warm while still leaning on your feminine tastes. Thick sweater dresses not only will keep you toasty they will also help to keep you dry, even if you just pair it with a thin windbreaker or rain jacket.

9. Rain coat

While rain coats or rain jackets may not be your first go-to when you’re getting ready for the day, but if you live in a wet climate it may be best to invest in a sleek coat that will keep you dry during the stormy season.
