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?


Check out the Sorel YouTube channel for their own ‘How to Wear’ videos. 

Rains’ video blogs cover the gamut from style influencers to events and collaborations proving the brand’s international kudos – rain, hail or shine. 

Long Tall Sally styles start at 5’8” in sizes 8-24 and shoe sizes 7-13.
