Rain proof fashion.
Weather should never be a barrier to fashion. In this wet weather there are a few essentials to keeping your style as the clouds rain down. While rain boots allow you to go puddle jumping without a care, leather riding boots are a more style friendly alternative; just make sure you waterproof them before going out in the rain.
A trench is another must for the cold, wet weather. It provides not only a classic look but when the rain comes it keeps one warm and dry while still looking fashionable. With a wardrobe essential such as a trench, it is best to splurge a litte because it will never go out of style and a well made piece is a better investment tha one which might last a year.
Of course don't forget an umbrella which is an easy way to be able to wear what you want and still stay dry instead of just covering up with a hoodie.
