Staying stylish in the storm weather

‘Sayonara’ squally showers! It’s time to reclaim our collective style mojo with a new approach to wet weather dressing. We’re opting for Sorel’s high-heeled neoprene stretch booties (complete with waterproof vulcanized rubber upper).

Pair them with your favourite dress and simply layer an elegant Rains poncho over the ensemble. Off-duty? We’re hearting on a yellow gingham trim rain coat from Long Tall Sally. Who said it needs to be raining?

STYLE NOTES:
