Eastern Canada has been experiencing ridiculous amounts of rain this spring. It may be dragging down your mood, but you don’t need to drag down your style! Embrace the rainfall and lack of sunshine; make up for it in a bright sundress and staple rain coat!
The outfits I created below all revolve around this lovely coat from Forever21 ($32.80). The coat may not be water proof, but it provides just enough layering. You won’t be too cold nor too warm stepping out in this coat! Matching this cropped trench with a sundress and some colourful rainboots can instantly make the weather seem much brighter.
1. Black is Back
When pretty pink florals are included, black can be turned into a staple appropriate after May Day. Throwing in some more colour to the combo can make black look much more interesting than as just a shade on its own.
2. The weather is making you blue
This outfit is perfect for rebelling against this gloomy weather! The bright blues make you feel more calm rather than depressed; I also love the idea of the yellow umbrella! Brings in a feeling of sunshine overtaking all of the blue underneath!
3. Funky boho
This outfit has some boho inspiration. The colours of the dress pop right out because of their contrast. I added some more colour with the bright purple wellies and pink umbrella. I don’t know how anyone could be gloomy wearing an outfit like this!
There you have it; the rain does not have to be an enemy. No need to pull out the Helly Hansen’s and fishermen boots. The rain could be refreshing to your style and get you trying out some new things. If you don’t already have a pair of great wellies, I suggest you buy some, along with a patterned umbrella. These key items really make my day when I see others wearing them!
