Raincoat Weather

We have had quite a bit of spring and early summer rain here in NYC. I picked up this fun watercolor raincoat a few years ago, and I have gotten a lot of use from it. Besides the fact that it’s functional, it’s a statement piece in itself and I get loads of complements on it. I am not sure I would classify a statement raincoat as a closet staple, but I have worn it a lot (and it hasn’t gone out of style in a few years). It’s nice to look polished- especially in the rain! Due to the fact that his coat is a statement piece, I paired it with neutrals: lace up pointed toe flats, a white lace dress, and a sparkly necklace. The lace dress is also great for work, and raincoats are generally useful when traveling, too.

It’s my college 5 year reunion this weekend, so hopefully I won’t be needing this raincoat!
