With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, we’ve got Ireland on our minds. Imagining an escape to the legendary misty moors and rugged coasts of that emerald isle, wild adventures in wet, rainy weather and drying off at the pub with a Guinness in hand.
Ok, so maybe we're romanticizing the rain a bit, but stormy weather doesn’t have to be a downer when you’ve got bright rain gear to keep you warm and dry. Whether classic, feminine, funky, or sweet, here are a few affordable staples to add to your spring wardrobe, and maybe inspire you to jump in a few puddles.
L.L. Bean’s timeless trench coats and duck boots are long-wearing and practical for anytime of year. Dark and gloomy weather is the perfect opportunity to wear light and punchy colors to brighten the day. Topshop takes the cake for the widest array of unique raincoats in fun colors, and this throwback '60s style flower-lace pattern in quirky plastic is nothing if not a conversation starter.
The best place to score just about any rain boot? DSW! We are especially loving the darling ankle booties complete with a bow.
