If you happen to live on the West Coast, you've probably noticed the ridiculous amounts of rainfall we've been experiencing lately. Gone are the days of walking around in a short sleeve t-shirt and some light denim (unless you're lucky enough to live in a more tempered climate). 

If you're like us and are looking to dodge a couple raindrops, you've come to the right place. This guide will walk you through three solid outfit ideas incorporating rain jackets and show you how you can look good while staying dry. 


Rain Outfits - Heritage


How to style a rain jacket


One of our favourite ways to wear a rain jacket is the so called 'heritage' way. This involves layering a waterproof outer shell over your flannel shirt, some dark wash denim, and your Red Wing's with a matching leather belt and watch. This outfit is both weather and fashion appropriate. The rain jacket and boots will keep you dry while the flannel and blue jeans never go out of style.

Waterproof Rain Jackets - Transparent

Another great way to tackle the rain is with a transparent rain jacket. This type of jacket is recommended if you really want to show off what you're wearing underneath. It is also a great way to mix things up instead of going with a generic outerwear piece. Style this with a couple layers underneath, some skinny jeans, and waterproofed sneakers for a great streetwear approved look.

Outfits for a Rainy Day - Streetwear

This next approach to styling a rain jacket incorporates athletic, laid back, and cozy articles of clothing. Grab a rain jacket in a neutral or monochromatic colour. Match it up with some contrasting sweatpants and finish the look with some waterproofed running shoes. You can further compliment this outfit idea with some headgear and a watch in matching colours.
