Is Rain Your Style Kryptonite?

The rainy-day essentials you'll actually want to wear.

Spring is one of my favorite seasons; I love the giddy anticipation and excitement it brings. Warmer weather does that to us, especially after many months of cold. But with spring also comes rain and rain is my fashion kryptonite. With a tendency of choosing style over practicality, I often find myself rain-soaked, uncomfortable and searching my car for an extra pair of dry shoes. Knowing this had to change, I began my hunt for fashionable rain-wear. I was determined to find stylish pieces that not only looked great, but could also withstand the April showers that accompany this beautiful season. To my surprise, the search was much easier than I thought and I ended up finding some real treasures. From classic styles to sporty essentials, here are some rainy-day staples I couldn’t help but fall in love with.
