I know a thing or two about the rain; I grew up in the wettest part of England, where it rains so often it practically runs in your blood. Waterproof boots, umbrellas, and raincoats become part of your daily style staples. And if you leave home without one of them, you know there'll be a downpour.
Now that I live in L.A., my umbrella rarely sees the light of a gray day. But after witnessing the seriously chic rainy day outfits fashion girls were donning during London and Paris Fashion weeks, I, for one, cannot wait to get caught in the rain wearing this season’s stormy styles.
Waterproof wear has no sign of slowing down for 2018 either. Its dominance at Chanel’s S/S 18 runway show was a splashy spectacle replete with transparent rain boots, hats, and handbags. Every inch of an outfit could be seen beneath a clear raincoat. Here's to never having to conceal a cool outfit because of the dreary drizzle ever again.
