Sometimes in the winter the weather does the worst thing: it warms up to just above freezing and buckets down rain. There’s basically nothing to like about rainy days in the winter. They’re windy. They’re wet. And they don’t even bring the prettiness factor of a nice dust of snow.

Dressing for a day like this can often be a struggle. A down coat is far too warm. A wool coat tends to get wet. What do you do?

First, your choice of umbrella is crucial–at least in a windy city like Chicago it is. I am a firm believer in bubble umbrellas. They don’t flip inside out if the wind gusts the wrong way, and you can hide almost the entire top half of your body inside its protective dome.

When faced with an irritatingly cold rainy day in the winter, I opt for my classic trench paired with a nice warm layer underneath. In this look, I’m wearing a cashmere turtleneck I found on consignment. This way you stay plenty warm enough without running the risk of soggy wool or down.

The other key? Rain boots, of course (or wellies if you’re British). Make sure you pair them with thick tights, which dry relatively quickly, rather than leggings or jeans, which hold onto moisture like its going out of style.

The one bright spot on rainy days for me is that I get to wear my beloved Joules boots. And that I get to let my inner 5-year-old out and splash around in puddles.

  1. I agree…nothing worse than cold and rainy. Rain boots and a trench or rain jacket are a must! I love your bubble umbrella. Perfect for windy days.
