Fall style has to be my favourite style.
This time of year style-wise is fantastic – actually getting photos of fall outfits though… Well, that’s another story.
Here in Vancouver, it rains 90% of the time during the fall and winter months. In fact, yesterday was supposed to be our first rain-free day in 26 days! Of course, though, the rain just couldn’t hold off a day and it decided to defy the weathermen and rain on-and-off all day anyways.
Honestly, it’s difficult to pry yourself away from your cozy quarters when it’s so icky out. And if I am being honest, I’ve been spending WAY too much time indoors lately.
Finally, though, I was able to convince myself and my fiancé to step outside, breathe in the fresh air, and take a few photos. Last year I shared how to look stylish in the rain, and today I am sharing a few more tips on master your daily style so your outfits are 1) ready for the weather, 2) comfortable, and 3) stylish.
Fall Style Staples for Rain-Proof Outfits
Rain Ready Shoes
One thing that is so important when living in a rainy (or snowy) city is to invest in shoes that will keep your feet warm and dry.
I don’t know about you, but whenever my feet get wet and cold during the fall/winter time, I tend to get a pretty nasty cold. That’s why I love my Cougar Arvida Boots so much, they are waterproof, cozy, and so stylish for everyday wear.
Layering is the reason why I love fall style so much – there are so many ways to layer up, build an outfit, and create unique outfits. When you’re creating your outfit for the day, try to add in pieces that are stylish and practical for your days such as a blanket scarf, or a sleek watch.
A Hat or Jacket with a Hood
You always want to wear something that can protect your hair from the cold rain, and that’s why I almost always go out with either a hat on, or jacket that has a hood. When my hair is cold and wet, I instantly feel cold all over – it’s not a good feeling!
So rather than risk it, I always try to wear something that’ll quickly cover my head and hair if a spontaneous rain shower starts up.
Keep An Umbrella on Hand (or in your purse)
An umbrella is pretty much a staple item when you live in Vancouver or any other rainy city. You never know when it’s going to rain so you have to be prepared at all times! I pretty much always carry around an umbrella because I have learned the hard way too many times what it’s like to be caught in a storm without one! I’d always rather my purse be a bit heavier than to end up soaking wet!
