Here's What to Wear on a Rainy Fall Day

The leaves are starting to change from vivid greens to warm reds, oranges, and yellows; autumn-inspired drinks (yes, we’re talking about the PSL) are back; and temperatures are dropping into the mid-to-low 60s in many states. And that can mean only one thing: Fall is fast approaching, so now is the time to prepare and transition your wardrobes for the changing season (and weather).

Not sure where to start? We're here to help! Here is a guide on how to transition many of your summer staples into autumn, and here, the best boot styles to buy, depending on where you live. Today, we're highlighting the cutest, most practical outfits to wear on a rainy fall day, and those who attended New York Fashion Week know firsthand that certain pieces and fabrics don't mix well with rain.

A rainy fall outfit is almost the same as a rainy summer outfit—just add some extra layers to help combat the cooler temperatures. In both seasonal situations, a raincoat is a must-have, good boots are another, and a trendy umbrella is a necessary accessory you didn't know you needed—until now. Ahead, see our roundup of easy fall rainy outfits that are as fashion-forward as they are, er, water-resistant? Then, shop some of our must-haves to help you combat an autumn downpour in style.
