People today would rather be drenched than bring an umbrella or put on a rain mac. It’s inconvenient and honestly not very attractive. And we get that. Fortunately, there are still rain wear out there that can protect you from dropping temperatures and all kinds of precipitation. We’ve zeroed in on the top 3 favorite rainy day looks from today’s fashion voice: the bloggers.
1) The Hood
Keep your head above water by keeping it dry! Or something like that. If you refuse to bring a reliable umbrella, then keep protected by choosing to wear hooded coats and capes.

Castawayvintage’s plaid cape features a coat and gives a stylish, retro theme while providing much coverage. Meanwhile, the camel-colored Zara coat styled by FashionAddicted makes for a modern and urban rain wear. And the oversized hood is always a win. ModCloth has this gorgeous, double-breasted coat which also has an oversized hood.

2) The Parka
Parkas are as close as they come to rain coats. In fact, they are better and are more good-looking. Now it’s all about choosing the right one for your weather and climate.

You can never go wrong with oversized, fur-trimmed hoods like the ones on The Black Feather and TheOnlyFashionPrincess ). We also noticed that the olive or dark green parkas are quite popular picks. They’re surprisingly easy to match and style with. I guess you can say green is the new black, where parkas are concerned. The Steve Madden parka we found is not green but its dark color is just as versatile.

3) The Cape
Capes. Don’t get turned off by the shape, capes are your new best friend when it comes to outerwear!

Match them with skinny jeans or leggings to balance out their roominess, like what Ari_Ari and Stamatinahasiotis has done. Capes also now come in all colors and patterns that are tempting to collect! We found an equally enchanting cape by Pink Martini at ModCloth.
