By Jessica Balasa | April 15, 2019 | Style & Beauty

The old adage “April showers bring May flowers” holds true in rainy Philadelphia each spring. Here, pieces that keep your style forecast bright and sunny when skies are grey.

Gorgeous in Green


Waxed cotton stays warm and dry and repels even the heaviest of downpours. A hood gives extra protection from wind and rain, and the drawstring waist allows for an adjustable silhouette. Bayford Parka, Belstaff, $695, Boyds

Honey, Honey!

Buffalo horn buttons adorn the luxurious silk coat. An elegant spin on the classic Burberry trench. Silk Wrap Trench Coat, Burberry, $3,490, Burberry


Studded rain boots are the perfect footwear for stomping through sidewalk puddles. A glossy finish keeps the edgy style polished. Rockstud Rainboots, Valentino Garavani, $475, Saks

Don’t Rain On My Parade

The long curved maple wood handle adds sophistication to this umbrella. The neutral taupe shade is classically chic and strikes a warm contrast against steely clouds. Pluie de H long umbrella, Hermes, $910, Hermes

Got it Covered

Longchamp’s signature tote is made from pliage and nylon that keep valuables dry and protected from the elements. Best of all, the bag folds up for easy storage when not in use. Le Pliage Club Tote Bag L, Longchamp, $155, Longchamp
