    Promising review: "This jacket is perfect for Florida, the weather changes very quickly, and can be sunny one minute and rain the next. This is pretty lightweight so you're not too hot and keeps you dry enough in light rain. Fits is great with adjustable waist, I ordered a small and it's a little long but I wanted that for more coverage from wind and rain. Overall very happy!" —J. Haroulakis

    I personally have this bag and it's super cute and functional, especially in unpredictable rainy weather. I took this tote to a picnic in Central Park where it randomly started raining and I didn't have to worry about my things getting wet. The water just slides right off the bag and then when the sun came back out, the fashion continues! Plus, I received a ton of compliments on it!

    Get it from Jeff Wan for $88 (available in three colors).

    3. A pair of water-resistant block-heel Chelsea boots for a timeless look you can dress up or down no matter the weather. They're also great for those who will never sacrifice wearing heels.


    Promising review: "Very comfortable and stylish. Can wear with pants or dresses. Easy slide on/off with elastic side inserts. I have received several compliments on these. They look great paired with Hilary Radley's black Ponte pants, which tuck neatly inside the booties." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $35+ (available in sizes 6–11 and two colors).

    4. A pair of rubber chukka boots to give you a grungy street-style look you can wear with any outfit.

    Check out our review of the water-resistant rubber chukka boots.

    Promising review: "These men's boots look rugged in a grungy street-style way — which is a way I like very much! I've even worn them with my Morticia-ish midi black dress with a lace-up V-neck (it's only medium scandalous) and they worked in a surprising way. The rubber tongue and waterproof sole make stomping through all kinds of murky puddles almost fun. Even the puddles that *look* like they're a few inches deep but then you step into them and they reach up past the sole of your boot. Sigh. I'm sure these are also excellent for things like actual hiking (which I don't do, sorry every dude on Bumble who read Into the Wild in middle school) or muddy music festivals (which I've avoided for the past few years in my old age). For now, these look pretty great and keep my feet dry and safe from putrid city puddles, which, tbh, are more terrifying than the huge rats." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Get them from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in men's sizes 3.5–12).

    5. A bright pair of Jeffrey Campell rain boots that'll add a vibrant, fashion-forward look.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love my rain boots! They actually make me look forward to rainy days. They are super comfortable, edgy and the heel is perfect, they add a fashionable pop to any outfit! If you don’t own a pair, what are you waiting for???" —Rainchaser

    Get them from Nordstrom for $59.95 (available in sizes 6–10 and seven colors).

    6. A clear vinyl raincoat with a faux leather trim and storm flaps to keep you dry and cute even with the weather is gross.

    Forever 21

    Promising review: "This coat is very cute and goes nicely with a dress if you want to keep dry and still stay stylish. The sleeves are a bit too long for me but I am quite short. Still cute though and not uncomfortable at all." —Dorothy T.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $34.90 (available in sizes S–M).

    7. A pair of waterproof leather boots that'll pair stylishly with your work clothes so you won't have to take them off when you get into the office.


    Promising review: "I needed boots for work that I could wear with a suit, that wouldn’t make me want to cut off my feet at the end of a 12 hour day, and that could handle the dangers of stepping off a NYC curb in the rain. These boots are perfect, comfortable, waterproof, and stylish. I’ve blazed through a million other ankle boots and wanted to set them on fire because they sucked so bad. These boots are awesome." —very veronica

    Get them from Amazon for $64.95+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and three colors).

    8. A lip-print cape poncho to quickly throw over your clothes when you start to feel a few drops. It'll keep your entire body dry even when it's raining really hard.


    Promising review: "I was so glad I took this on my trip to Europe. When I used the hood, it was great to have a part of the hood that was clear. I could see when it was raining really hard. It was an advantage over the other people that had regular poncho type rain gear and the rain was falling in their faces. I would recommend that you use the snaps that are provided on the sides. Not doing so will cause you to get really wet if it rains hard. I didn't use them as I was trying to make sure I could get my arms out easier and quickly while taking pictures. I kept my camera under the raincoat in between shots and it worked perfectly. My camera stayed dry." —Cadillac DJ

    Get it from Amazon for $15.42+ (available in OS and two colors).

    9. A pair of men's cap toe boots for versatile and vintage style that'll look good with khakis or your favorite pair of jeans. And they're waterproof so you're prepared no matter what the weather decides to bring.


    Promising review: "Boots are well built with beautiful leather. Takes a bit to break in but they are comfortable. The soles provide a good grip to prevent slippage from the rain and are good for my walk in the city." —Charlie_Brown

    Get them from Nordstrom for $196.90 (originally $295, available in sizes 8–13 and two colors).

    10. A colorblock rain jacket to brighten up your gray day with stylish colors and a snazzy fit.

    Promising review: "Best rain jacket I got in a long time. I walk to work and I live on the Oregon coast so when it rains it comes down pouring. The rain does not leak through. Love the colors." —sarah johns

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes 16–24 and seven colors).

    11. A pair of Sam Edelman rain booties that'll be lightweight and comfortable enough to wear walking around all day in the city.,

    Check out our review of the Sam Edelman rain booties.

    Promising review: "These are my favorite rain boots! I've gotten many compliments on them and can wear them with business casual outfits, which is a first for rain boots (which are usually so large and clunky). I would not recommend buying these if you plan to walk through marshes or go fishing, but for rainy city trekking-yes!" —big mac

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 4–13 and 11 colors).

    12. A colorful waterproof nylon tote to hold your umbrella and rain gear without soaked or leaking from the inside. It'll make your plain rain outfit stand out in the clouds.


    Promising review: "I love this bag! It's lightweight, roomy, and has lots of pockets for organizing my stuff. I love the bottom zipper for umbrella or rain poncho and that it's lined for wetness. It's soft and distributes the weight of my things perfectly it makes it feel lighter than my other bags. It sits snug on my shoulder and the side pocket is huge for quick access items like phone, keys, notepads, calendar, and pens. I can carry so much in it and it's stylish." —Mary Jackson

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in 10 colors).

    13. A colorful poncho trench that'll be chic, comfortable, and keep you dry in the random summer and spring showers.


    Promising review: "It’s cute, comfortable, chic, and perfect on those days when you’re out and about trying to stay dry! It does not appear to be quite as sheer as it does in the photo, but it doesn’t take away from the jacket at all. Of course, it stopped raining after I’d purchased it lol...It doesn’t rain much here but was pouring for a minute! But it’s honestly something that I think can be worn even when it’s not raining. I do recommend it." —LoverofPrime

    Get it from Amazon for $6.80+ (available in sizes M–XL and eight colors).

    14. And a cute hooded mesh windbreaker to combat the windy, sideways rain like no other. And it's lightweight so you won't be hot on humid days!

    Forever 21

    Promising review: "I like the combination of the light colors. Great for spring. Although a small looks good on me I wish it came in an XS since I'm petite. Overall the fit is still great." —Teresa P.
