A little rainy weather, much like today's conditions in NYC, is no reason to let your chic style go by the wayside. An array of trendy umbrellas, rain boots and weatherproof coats are on the market that will have you doing the rain dance just so you can use them. We love the Bella Pagoda Pinwheel Umbrella in black and white from www.Umbrellas.net
for $129. It comes in a variety of other colors as well. Another fave is the Plask Boot in the cypress shade from Tretorn. With a mid-height wedge heel, these rain boots (which look more like a legit pair of boots that happen to be waterproof) can easily carry any fashionista from day to night in all weather conditions. Find them on the Web site www.Shoesteal.com for almost half of the original price. And our most loved splurge for weatherproof gear is the asymmetrical hooded raincoat from Smythe. It is insanely stylish and will keep you wearing it despite the conditions outdoors. You can find it at www.netaporter.com for $650, and in our opinion, it's worth every penny :).
