What to Wear: Rainy Day

With fall comes early sunsets, Pumpkin Spice lattes and unfortunately rainy, dreary days. We however, don’t like to let the weather get us down and when it comes to rainy day dressing, our philosophy is style meets function because no one wants soggy socks and frizzy hair. Just throw on a pair of rain boots, a chic trench and bright lipstick and you may just hope for the next rain shower. Here’s our list of what you want in your closet now.

Hunter Regent Carlyle Rain Boot in Verry Berry, $250

Hunter Regent Carlyle Rain Boot in Verry Berry, $250

We are huge fans of the new Regent collection from Hunter. This Equestrian-style boot in Verry Berry has the embossed logo on the top and inside is cushiony and comfortable.

Hudson Bay Walking Stick Umbrella, $35

Hudson Bay Walking Stick Umbrella, $35

There’s nothing like showing a little bit of Canadiana and this umbrella from Hudson’s Bay is perfectly classic, plus unlike a fold-up will hold up better against the elements.

Clinique High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15, Red-y to Wear, $18

Clinique High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15, Red-y to Wear, $18

Just because it’s gloomy out doesn’t mean your makeup should be blah. Add a pop of colour with a classic red lip. We’re fans of Clinique‘s Red-y to Wear, which also has SPF 15 (just in case the sun comes out later in the day).

Banana Republic Classic Trench, $240

Banana Republic Classic Trench, $240

If you’re still saving up for a Burberry, in the meantime this classic trench from Banana Republic will do just fine. We’re partial to the khaki colour, but it also comes in black too.

Kiehl's Creme with Silk Groom, $18 (USD)

Kiehl’s Creme with Silk Groom, $18 (USD)

For most of us, flyaways are a beauty bummer that gets us down on rainy (or humid) days. We’re fans keeping the strays at bay with Kiehl’s Creme with Silk Groom that smooths and conditions. You only need a dime size amount for long hair, so a bottle will last you for a long time.

Eddie Borgo Gold-plated inverted pyramid ring, $315 (US)

Eddie Borgo Gold-plated inverted pyramid ring, $315 (US)

Just like a fun lipstick, bold accessories quickly add pizazz to an outfit. This architectural-style ring by Eddie Borgo is a statement piece that will work day or night. Available on net-a-porter.com.
