The cold, rainy weather we had yesterday in DC got me thinking about how best to look chic when it is pouring rain. For me, the tried and true basics will always be: a beautiful trench coat and patent pumps. If you have a work event to go to and it's raining, this is a great way to stay stylish and waterproof. It's not necessarily the most practical, but will save you from having to carry a pair of rubber rainboots with you into a meeting or happy hour. Alternately, the MUK LUKS shown below are the cutest all-weather boots I have ever seen. To complete the outerwear look, plaid accessories add a classic touch of warmth and color.
