Rain rain go away, come again another day! While many of us have been experiencing record amounts of snow over the past several weeks, many of us have been experiencing rainy weather. Nothing is worse than being unprepared for a day of rain. The wet and squeaky sneakers, sopping hair, and damp clothes are enough to give us the ick. Here are some of our favorite pieces of rainy day gear that will keep you comfortable and dry!


Rain Jackets

Resolve Parka II – The North Face

Sport Chek

April showers bring May flowers! This rain jacket by The North Face brings sunshine to any cloudy day. The baby pink color is feminine and chic, but not to worry- it’s also perfectly functional for combatting the elements! Made with their trademarked DryVent technology, the Resolve Parka II offers the perfect waterproof and windproof protection, while maintaining breathability! We recommend sizing up so you can layer sweatshirts underneath for added warmth! PS- it’s on sale at Dicks right now.

Rain Rebel – Lululemon

Lulu Fanatic

This jacket by Lululemon is a bit of a splurge (retails for about $230), but to us, it’s worth every penny. Plus, the quality is unmatched- you’ll never need another rain jacket for the rest of your life. This jacket is constructed with their trademarked Glyde fabric. It has a waterproof exterior, and the inside is lined with “sweat wicking” material, so it’s perfectly safe to workout in this. The best part? The pockets are fleece lined to keep you warm, and the waist is adjustable, allowing you to flaunt your figure while keeping you dry!

Women’s Mountain Classic Anorak – LL Bean

LL Bean

We love this jacket from LL Bean because the color blocking brings us back to a simpler time: the 90s. No but seriously, LL Bean is always a trustworthy option for outerwear and has an amazing reputation. This jacket is both wind and water resistant, but we recommend you wear this during a light drizzle. It’s roomy, so you can easily layer for warmth. It’s also super easy to store because it’s retractable. Certain color varieties can be found on sale for as low as $39 so run. Don’t walk to buy this jacket!

Rain Boots

Sienna Boot – UGG


Though Ugg boots are a controversial fashion choice, we personally love them. The only downside of the classic suede boots is that they do not do well in rainy and snowy weather unless they are waterproofed. In the last few years, Ugg has released a line of boots specifically built to combat rainy weather. Not only are their rubber boots water resistant, but they have that warm sheepskin lining on the inside to keep your feet nice and toasty. We don’t have enough good things to say about these bad boys.

Tavie Leather Combat Boot – Michael Kors


Michael Kors isn’t just for handbags, ladies! These rubber boots may not have been designed solely for the rain, but we think that they are such a trendy alternative to your run of the mill rainboots. This Doc Martin-esque boots are sure to make a statement no matter when you wear them. Pro tip: wear these with a pair of fuzzy socks for added warmth. It can get chilly in there!
