Whatever your style and weather patterns, we've curated our favorite rainy day essentials from brands we love to keep you fashionable and dry during that next storm.
New Zealand label Blunt set out to do something revolutionary: re-invent the umbrella. The result is a beautifully engineered tool that (1) doesn’t poke you in the eye, (2) can handle strong winds, and (3) lasts for years. With a Blunt umbrella, you can say farewell to disposable umbrellas, broken and abandoned on the street, and brave the elements with confidence. Available in multiple colors. ($59-$89)
PATAGONIA TORRENTSHELL JACKET
You can't really beat Pataongia for technical specs and sustainable values. Their Torrentshell Rain Coat is designed for the trails and the city and whatever happens in between. Not only is this jacket waterproof, breathable, and fair-trade sewn, but it is also packable, folding up neatly into its own pocket for easy grab and go protection. Available in multiple colors. ($149)
GORMAN 'DOT DASH' RAINCOAT
We challenge you to find a punchier raincoat print than those from Australian label Gorman. Every season, they come out with more bright prints to inject sunshine into your rainy days. We think this Dot Dash Raincoat would pair perfectly with our Bobbi Mustard boots, what do you think? ($62)

Literal sunshine on your head, we adore this bright and merry bucket hat from NY label Kule. This energy is perfect for both rainy days and summer sun. ($98)

CRUMPLERMelbourne label Crumpler is all about bags that work hard and play hard, and this Strength of Character messenger bag is no exemption.

Weather-resistant, stylish, and practical - what more do you need? Available in multiple colors. ($106)
SEA BAGS MAINE
Handcrafted from recycled sails on the working waterfront in Portland, Maine, these unique bags add a special touch to any outfit. Pick from an array of styles and shapes, or create your own custom bag. We love the daily versatility of this Red Mariner Stripe Convertible Bucket Bag, but also lusting for one of their larger tote bags. ($120)
