When you can’t wish away the rain, you should dress for the occasion instead. Detroit has seen its fair share of rain and cold lately, but that doesn’t mean you can’t implement a spring season mindset when it comes to your clothes. Choose something fun, bright, and cheerful – the opposite of the dreary, wet days ahead and you’ll be looking forward to the sounds of raindrops outside your window.
Below are several pieces that would look just as great alone as they would together!
An umbrella is a must when it’s coming down outside, so why not pick something extra cute and quirky like this Kate Spade Deco Dot Travel Umbrella? The signature print from this trendy designer would look great with a variety of outfits, and I especially like it for pattern mixing.
I love this black raincoat, and based on the waterproof pieces gathered by Glamour, I’d say they approve, too. The trench style is smart, while the tailored waist is feminine. From casual to dressy, pair this Aquascutum Jennifer Single Breasted Raincoat with a multitude of looks when you need an extra layer, even if its bone dry outside.
A statement necklace will tie in all of the elements from the outfit. Revel in the beauty of this pink Beaded Rose Necklace from J.Crew. This is a large botanical-inspired piece of jewelry that will surely make a statement and look adorable paired with a striped tee (like the one below).
Striped tees are totally classic and make great wardrobe staples. I’m crushing on the this black and white Andrea Marques Crew Neck Striped Blouse. The generous sleeve length will keep you warm in the rain and will look great teamed up with all of the other finds in this post.
When it’s raining outside the last thing you want to do is lug around a giant handbag, so Lyst suggests trying out a backpack purse similar to Yoki Fashion’s Clean Backpack in coral. This small satchel has a faux leather outer and adjustable straps that make it perfect for wet weather.
White skinny jeans are a great wardrobe staple, especially during the spring and summer months, which we know are just around the corner. The slim ankle jeans by Victoria Beckham will couple up seamlessly with florals, your favorite tees, and delicate flowing blouses. I especially like them paired with a fun and flirty pair of kicks which’ll keep you warm, dry, and looking great.
Last, but not least: the shoes that will make your rainy day outfit complete. There’s nothing quite like an adorable pair of waterproof boots to get you through the less than stellar springtime storms. The multicolor floral Molly Mid-Height Printed Rain Boots by Joules are designed to conquer the day with their functionality and charm. Want to wear them more often?

I hope you’ve been inspired to brave the wet weather thanks to some new rainy day outfit inspiration. Dreary weather can be tough, but cheering yourself up with a cute new accessory or addition to your closet can make all the difference.
