Fairfax Fashion Friday: Rainy Day Gear

It might be a challenge to find good rain gear for those rainy days as there are many things to consider. From the quality of the material to wear, the style, and how to dress well for a rainy day. This week I wanted to talk about appropriate rain attire.

I have truly learned throughout the years to purchase a couple of umbrellas. Umbrellas break or become misplaced. Target has some great umbrellas at a reasonable price. Purchase a trench coach or raincoat at an outdoor retail store like Dick’s Sporting Goods, REI, or Travel Smith. Match and add a little color by purchasing rain boots at a store like Target. I decided to put together two of my inspired rainy day outfits which are featured below.

Just because it is gray and dreary outside doesn't mean our wardrobe should be the same. We can look our best in the brightest and cheery styles including vibrant colors of turquoise, reds, oranges, and yellows giving all the more reason to embrace the elements of color.

So on a rainy day, what do you wear?
