With Austin lately experiencing uncharacteristically stormy weather, it can be tempting to stay in much less decide what to wear for the downpour. Instead of thinking of the precipitation as a hindrance to your wardrobe, embrace the weather with these rainy day essentials:

Naturally, you have to start with shoes! Hunter boots are the original rain boot (founded in 1856), and perfect in classic navy with a matte finish.

This rain coat in a frosted finish reminds me of a sophisticated version of what I wore as a child–now in a more subdued gray hue.

Patterned denim is a great way to bring something–pair this Current/Elliot boyfriend jean in a polka dot print with a plain white t-shirt to finish the look.
