Rain, rain, go away. Don't come back, we need to slay!
Normally I'd say I hate rainy days, but today, not so much. I've decided to use the rain as an accessory.
@@"How Sway," you ask? Well, once again I've got the answers.@@
When you think of a rainy day, you should automatically think "hat weather." Wool, wide-brimmed hats are definitely on-trend at the moment and are both functional and fashionable. They keep you warm and protect your hair while adding to your look. You can rock yours in black like this one, or try other winter-appropriate colors like olive green, khaki or burgundy.
Another way to accessorize the rain is by wearing a statement coat. This geometric-print hooded coat is one of my favorites. Although it's in gray and black, the eye-catching print, leather belt and asymmetrical cut makes it a statement piece and a focal point for this look.
You probably know this by now, but when it comes to wearing statement pieces, I like to pair them with pieces in the same color family. This dark gray sweater is a great option because it's in the same color family, but the variation in shade adds depth to this look. The cable-knot detail also adds dimension. I also added this glitzy necklace to dress it up a bit, and break up the monotony without breaking up the color palette.
I had a few meetings today (hence the late post) so black dress pants were necessary in this case. Although my least favorite professional wardrobe piece, a pair of black dress pants is a staple.
Normally I'd pair this look with a pair of black jeans and black rain-boots, but since I needed to look professional, I chose this pair of black booties with a decent heel height and minimal detailing.
What issues do you find with dressing in the rain?
