Rain Check...

Spring: a time of growing warmth, chirping birds, and blooming flowers. Colours are emerging from a bleak and barren landscape, and truthfully, it’s hard not to reflect the change in our wardrobe. Pastels and florals that seemed woefully inappropriate in January are growing irresistible, while the rising temperature has us itching to don some light dresses. And yet cold spring showers too often put a damper on our style. 

This year we’re embracing rain accessories. To help inspire you, we’ve picked a few ladies who beautifully wear boots and carry umbrellas without sacrificing their style.

If the classic rain boot style appeals to you, Hunters are well made and widely seen. Their popularity is due not only to their durability, but also to their wide range of colours and glosses. 

If you hate the clunky and restrictive nature of tall rubber boots, there are a lot of great alternatives.

While your feet are warm and dry, your head is left unprotected. Your hair and make-up are subjected to the elements, often left sad versions of what they were before leaving the house. Luckily, there are countless umbrella shapes and patterns to suit your every style whim.

Spring brings the promise of better weather, but its beginning is often speckled with grey skies and rain. Rather than letting the wet weather foster a gloomy attitude and wardrobe, enjoy the details. By choosing interesting accessories that complement your taste, you’ll have fun and stay dry in style. Happy spring!
