Weather (get it?) we like it or not, rainy season is upon us. And that means it’s time for umbrellas, boots, jackets, and hoods... Sigh.
The warm weather is disappearing and turning wet fast, but that doesn't mean your look has to suffer. Why can’t we have it all?
Good news: there is, in fact, some rain gear out there that is both functional and on trend. So let the rain fall, eh? With this list, you’ll be as stylish as you are dry.
Hudson's Bay Company Collection Walking Stick Umbrella
