Fear not, there are several key pieces that will keep you looking good while you stay warm or dry.

Fighting the Rain:

Umbrellas are your new best friend. With endless patterns and colours, there is bound to be an option for every wardrobe. Be sure to look around the check out line at your favourite stores as that is where umbrellas are usually placed.

1. ModCloth Umbrella, $30

Be One With the Mud:

When there is rain and no snow, there is going to be a ton of mud. Rain boots are an obvious bet for the rain but they also come in handy if you happen to find yourself in a muddy situation. Check out some of the fun options below to avoid getting dirty.
