In our native Norway, rain showers become more and more frequent as we enter autumn. Rather than bemoan wet weather, we embrace it — and SWIMS water-resistant and waterproof collections make trekking through city streets in the rain an opportunity to flaunt your style..
When planning your seasonal wardrobe, it’s important to have a few rainy day style staples like a durable but sleek raincoat, a small portable umbrella that provides ample protection, stylish storm shoes that provide waterproof protection while still accenting your dress for the day or galoshes to keep your best leather shoes safe and dry.
A rainy forecast doesn’t have to mean doom and gloom, and once you stock up on rainy day style essentials you may even find yourself looking forward to a little drizzle. We love an opportunity to sport outerwear, shoes and accessories that are as versatile and functional as they are stylish. Here’s seven rainy day style essentials to help you embrace wet weather.
