A trench coat is a must, but if you are bored with the traditional knee length khaki variety try a cropped version in a different color. Like this adorbs one from Nordstrom in a smokey gray.

Rainboots are always handy on a wet day, but as the weather warms up I tend to not want to wear boots, if you have a similar aversion, try a cute ballet or clog style. These lovely leopard print ballet flats from Sperry Top-Sider are rainy day and fashion friendly.

I don't know about you but I am always carrying a million things and then to add to that carrying an umbrella, it is beyond awkward. Instead I think a chic bucket hat that keeps your hair dry and your hands free is just the thing.
The last thing on my rainy day list is a waterproof tote. Perfect for keeping the essentials at your side and water-free. I would even toss my nice leather bag in the tote as I run around town. The bright color of this waterproof tote at Vatinel on Etsy is sure to brighten the greyest of grey days.

What are your key pieces to surviving a rainy day? Are you pro or anti umbrella?
