After this seemingly never-ending downpour, some major style inspiration for dodging raindrops is needed. I have been essentially living in drenched clothing and my classic Burberry print wellies! This week’s Style Crush shows us how to be stylish (instead of soggy) in these showers.
Actress Rachel Bilson’s iconic fashion doesn’t stop at sunshine and red carpets; style doesn’t have to be compromised for functionality when it comes to rain, and Rachel has championed this look over and over.
“I like to be comfortable and I don’t like to be cold, and I don’t like to wear anything I’m not in the mood for!” – Rachel Bilson
Many designers have partnered with outerwear brands, adding chicness to waterproof necessities. Brands such as Calvin Klein, DKNY, and Ralph Lauren regularly incorporate raincoats into their collections. Stay dry in style!
Rachel works the timeless, traditional rainy day look with a Burberry trench. The black Jimmy Choo for Hunter crocodile-embossed rain boots are the perfect pairing. The trench is long enough to cover the majority of her pant so she is completely concealed — perfect!
This look is more casual and sporty. The croc wellies prove to be a go-to for Rachel, this time in gray to match her ombre zip-up jacket. A black Chanel bag and black skinny jeans complete the look and complement the gray ensemble wonderfully (gray is THE color for this fall).
