Rainy Day Essentials
Stay dry and stylish with our favourite wet weather gear!
Whether you are facing spring showers or a winter deluge, it pays to be prepared for whatever nature is creating. But prepared doesn't mean giving up on fashion! It's easy to look stylish while you go about your rainy day - adding some sunshine to the gloom with bright boots, or staying sleek and polished with a trench coat. Whatever your style and weather patterns, we've curated our favourite rainy day essentials from brands we love to keep you fashionable and dry during that next storm.
New Zealand label Blunt set out to do something revolutionary: re-invent the umbrella. The result is a beautifully engineered tool that (1) doesn’t poke you in the eye, (2) can handle strong winds, and (3) lasts for years. With a Blunt umbrella, you can say farewell to disposable umbrellas, broken and abandoned on the street, and brave the elements with confidence. ($99-$129)
MERRY PEOPLE CHARLOTTE TRENCH COAT
Stylish and practical, our Charlotte trench is a "go-to" piece no matter what the weather or occasion. With a detachable hood, the Charlotte trench is designed to flow from casual to corporate, making it a key wardrobe staple for city life. Available in Navy and Beige. ($249)
From Tasmania, Rainkoat originally started out doing kids’ jackets and waterproof overalls. Thankfully for us, they’ve expanded their ridiculously cute line to make adult jackets now. Like us, Rainkoat is female-founded and focused on creating durable, high-quality products that last for years. We love the idea of pairing their Pink Stripy Sailor jacket with our Bobbi Beetroot. ($140)
GORMAN DOT DASH RAINCOAT
