How To Look Put-Together On A Rainy Day

I always feel like I look like a drowned rat on rainy days. I never seem to wear the right jacket or shoes–and don’t even get me started on my hair. And even though it’s pouring out, there’s always that one girl gracefully dodging puddles in her cute rain boots and perfectly fitted trench coat. After several days of showing up to work looking like I got lost in the Amazon rainforest during my commute, I decided I wanted to make summer rain storms my bitch. Here are the rainy day survival tricks I’ve learned so far:

Wear water proof makeup. If the weather forecast says rain, reach for your waterproof mascara in the morning. You never know when you’ll get caught in downpour or splashed in the face (seriously).

Unless you are under the age of 10, multi-colored rain boots are not acceptable. I don’t care who makes them. Invest in a pair of classic, black rain boots–preferably ones that look like regular boots. I love this pair by Burberry ($275) because they a) don’t even look like they are made out of plastic and b) will go with whatever outfit you already have planned.

Pick up a bottle of anti-humidity spray. Kate Middleton is the only woman in the world that can pull off frizzy hair. Swing by Sephora and get yourself a bottle of Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Dry Oil Mist ($35). Trust me, it’s worth it.

A belted trench always looks classy. It’s almost impossible to go wrong with a classic beige trench coat. Opt for one with a cinched waisted for a more fitted look. Bonus points if you find one with a hood.

Plastic ponchos are only okay if you are a tourist at Disney world. Unless your trapped at Epcot in the middle of a torrential downpour, don’t even think about touching a plastic poncho.

In order to help you follow these rules, I rounded up the best boots, umbrellas and rain jackets for surviving this miserable weather (and looking good at the same time). Flip through the slideshow to check out my rainy day picks.
