Rain, rain go away—or, actually, maybe not. Figuring out what to wear when the forecast calls for showers is no easy task. You want to be comfortable, cute, and stay somewhat dry. Take a look at these three rainy day outfits to inspire you to get out of bed and take on a torrential downpour.
1. For Running Errands
Jeans and sneakers on an overcast day are a good bet and will make running errands a breeze. The pullover parka adds a dose of cool and has a hood for protection against extra frizz. And a cheeky umbrella like this one will help keep you optimistic for blue skies, ahead.

2. For a Casual Weekend Outing
The yellow raincoat works perfectly with denim. Try offsetting the classic outerwear with a trendier piece, like denim culottes (far more exciting than your average five-pocket skinnies). Don’t forget the clear umbrella so your outfit doesn’t go unnoticed.
