Slick Moves: Sperry Top-Sider Saltwater Core (Women’s)
Duck boots and rain season are obviously a perfect pair—but Sperry Top-Siders are the tried-and-true trailblazers. The Saltwater Core delivers the rugged-preppy style you want, and the #1 warm/dry comfort and wet/dry traction you need.
There’s something about these posh puddle-stompers that works with any apparel and occasion. The dark colorblocked rubber and leather with spiral-tipped laces add a nautical edge to a dress, skinnies, or heck, even stuffed into baggy sweatpants! Rock this boot for overcast hikes, rainy-day errands, or just because (*crummy weather not required).
More Sprinkles, Please:Joules Minilite Compact Umbrella
Talk about some flower/shower power! This pretty compact umbrella packs in a lot of rainy-day (fun)ction—from the cheerful striped and springy bouquet pattern to the handy palm-size design when folded down.
And don’t be fooled by the smaller size—the fiberglass ribs can hold up to even the windiest storm gusts (reverting begone!). Throw this plus-one into your everyday purse for any chance of precipitation…and 100% chance of really-cute style. *Also available in Red/Tartan.
Make a Splash:Joules Golightly Raincoat
Forget about fun in the sun—the Golighty raincoat will make even the greyest of days feel delightful. Zip up, snap up, and enjoy the ample snap-pocket options come drizzle or downpour—you’ll stay dry either way.
And if not chosen for the smile-inducing print options alone (polka dots, florals, or Americana-color thistles), you’ll want this polyester outerwear for its feather-light feel, adjustable drawstring-cinching features (at the waist, wrist cuffs, and hood), and ability to fold up into a neat travel-sized pocket. A true (rain)checks-all-the-boxes coat, indeed!
Just a Rainy Day in Paradise: Roxy Women’s Beautiful Morning Hat
“If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain”, look no further than the breezy Beautiful Morning trucker hat. No matter the weather (sunshine to storm) or setting (beach or the backyard), this Roxy cap is a cool way to take cover.
Breathable mesh sides/back with snap tab offer just-right airflow and fit, while tropical hibiscus print front panel and striped curved visor give the ideal blend of Cali/all-American styles. Wear this hat for a dose of island vibes with your outfit…and an escape from rays or raindrops.
