if there’s one thing we know about spring, it’s that the weather is unpredictable. one minute it’s bright, glorious sunshine. the next minute the gray clouds swirl overhead. the mornings are typically brisk. the afternoons’ usher in milder temps. today the temperatures range from a chilly thirty-three degrees to a high of sixty-nine. so what’s a girl to wear?
well, today’s post is all about how to wear a raincoat. it’s a girl’s best friend this time of year. and we all love a timeless classic trenchcoat. it’s a wardrobe staple that will never let you down. but if you want to add a little pizazz to your daily outfit think about a raincoat with a bold pattern.
a black and white color combo is always right. no matter what season. today’s ootd starts with a simple white skirt with patch pockets. then i added a basic black cashmere crewneck from Everlane, suede boots and popped on a gingham raincoat from Talbots (old, but there’s a similar rendition from Talbots here). don’t forget to grab a black handbag (similar here) to complete the look.
there’s a variety of patterns to choose from when it comes to raincoats. go bold, go bright. or maybe subdued. the choice is yours.
many boots are on sale this time of year. if you look hard enough, you just might find one or two at a bargain price.
don’t forget to stop by instagram today to see which fashion icon i copied for the classic style series.
