Accessories for April Showers

This year, April is living up to its rainy reputation. While you wait for the drizzle to stop and May flowers to finally arrive, these rainy-day accessories will have you playing in the puddles.

Umbrellas
What’s gloomier than stormy skies? The ubiquitous black umbrella. Have fun despite the weather with a bubble umbrella by Felix Rey. Or keep dry (and make accessorizing easy) with an umbrella and tote set from Marc by Marc Jacobs–the built-in umbrella pocket ensures you’ll have it when you need it.

Rain Boots
Hunter Wellies are a classic choice, and the brand has been expanding beyond its signature style. With python-embossed and lace-up versions, not to mention a rainbow of colors, they’ll help save your leather shoes from the elements without sacrificing your look.

Trench Coats
Fusing elegance with function, the trench coat helps form the backbone of a wardrobe. From the classic (like the Vince jacket pictured) to the unique (a two-tone version by Derek Lam), a trench is a worthy investment piece. Though timeless, it pairs perfectly with many of the season’s trends: belt one over wide-leg jeans, pair a khaki version with brights, or let the hem of a ’50s-inspired floral dress peek out.
