Is rain in your forecast? Spring season brings rain to a lot of places. You still have to make it to work, take the kids to school, or do various errands. To beat the weather, we’ve gathered a few items to help keep you dry and brighten up your outfit.


Rain coats 1

Raincoats are great investments for those residing in areas prone to rain. There are many styles available and we suggest opting for those that fit your body type. The hemline of your coat will proportion your body visually. Taller figures can manage longer coats, while petite figures are best flattered in mid-thigh styles. Promote curves by wearing a coat with a belt, while boxy and looser shape jackets suit slim shapes. Have fun with your choice, pick your favorite color or this season’s red for a pop in your fall wardrobe!

Rainy Day Tips


1. Pack Plastic!

Carrying a spare plastic bag (grocery) and ziplock bags are smart choices for rainy days. Grocery bags can be used to keep handbags or other larger objects from getting wet, while ziplocks come in handy for phones and smaller objects.

2. Carry Wipes!

Make-up is usually the first casualty of rain. To remove runs and smudges, keep a travel pack of make-up wipes with you. Convenient and handy, using make-up wipes is the easiest way to fix any rain hiccups.

3. Be Aware!

All smart phones now have easy access to a variety of weather apps. Install and download one on your phone to always be prepared. Weather apps allow for you to avoid rain and give you a heads up on what to expect.
