7 Ways To Still Look Cute On Rainy Days

Fall is the best time of year, obviously. The colors, the cool air, the ~spooky~ spirit. IMO, it’s the best season! But, it’s also a weird season, since the weather doesn’t quite know what it’s doing. It’s muggy and rainy in the morning, then cold and sunny in the afternoon. TBH, it sucks. How are you supposed to wear your cute fall leggings and sweaters when you have to think about gross weather? I feel you. You really want to break out your trendy fall skirts and dresses, but you don’t them to get all ruined in the rain. Ugh.

I know some people who LOVE the rain, but I have always hated it because of how it ruined perfectly crafted outfits. But, there are some ways to keep yourself looking stylish without having to get drenched in the rain. If you need some advice (besides just “stay inside”) check out these easy ways to still look chic when it’s raining out this fall. Good luck, you’ve got this.

Carry A Cute Umbrella

Guys...umbrellas are cute now. I know you don't really want to carry them around, but they are pretty important and can be stylish, too! Opt for a smaller one that you can keep in your purse or backpack. You can even get a cute design to show off your style.

Wear Waterproof Makeup

This is important. I know you might think waterproof makeup is for those days at the beach, but they are also for those rainy, wet days when you need to keep your makeup on point. Throw some waterproof mascara in your bag to have just in case it rains. It will save your look.

Keep Anti-Frizz Cream In Your Bag

Okay, let's talk about the hair now. We all know that rain does TERRIBLE things for your hair, so your best bet is to throw on some anti-frizz cream to fight against the humidity. This way, you can keep your locks looking sleek instead of poofy.

Throw Your Hair Up

So let's say it's a monsoon out there. No amount of anti-frizz cream will help tame your hair. That's okay, this is what up-dos are for! Try out a high pony or some  french braids to keep your hair out of your face and look more put together.


Get Some Stylish Rain Boots

Rain boots have come a long way since you were a kid and were forced to wear big, bulky boots. You can now get ~cute~ boots that will help dress up your outfit. Or, you can also go with a chic quilted black pair. Either way, you should definitely get some boots so that your shoes aren't ruined when you're walking around.

Wear A Trendy Raincoat

I know when I think of raincoats, I think about the blinding yellow raincoat fromIt, but there are a lot more options now. A raincoat is something you might not think about buying, but then one gross fall day you're stuck in the rain and really wish you weren't getting soaked. Trust me, invest in a raincoat.

Wear A Cute Wind Breaker

For those gross rainy/windy/potential hurricane days, you should opt for a windbreaker to protect your cute outfit and your hair. I never understood the appeal of a windbreaker until I became a "grown up" who walks around NYC in awful winds and realize that they are, in fact, vital when you are dealing with fall weather.
