Thanks for your support and for making this blog possible!Finding the right rainy day outfit has always been really difficult for me. I tend to wear a lot of shoes that really shouldn’t get wet – combine that with hair that goes NUTS in the rain and it’s not a good time. When Denise suggested we make April Showers our next Diversity Chic theme, I was totally down! Not only would it be a great challenge for myself, I knew reading everyone else’s posts would help inspire me for the next time it rains. Genius.
If you’re new to Diversity Chic, here’s what we’re all about!
Diversity Chic is a collaboration of Dallas bloggers showcasing current fashion trends on a variety of skin tones, hair colors, body types and heights. Each month we will feature a new trend tailored to our personalities and style.
Our focus is to explore the world of fashion in its unique, diverse, and stylish manner – one trend at a time.
2017 is the year of expanding the Diversity Chic party – we’re inviting bloggers to link up with us, so make sure to link up your rainy day looks below! Next month we’ll be showcasing florals (April showers bring May flowers….get it?) so get your floral looks ready for May!
Now onto this month’s trend! As I said, rainy day wear has always been tough for me. I HATE gigantic rainboots – they’re super useful but once you get inside they’re kind of a pain. That’s why I was so dang stoked to find these sleek rain booties from Sam Edelman! Granted they don’t offer you as much splash protection as galoshes, but they’re also a lot more comfortable and you can wear them all day without shouting “HEY I’M WEARING RAINBOOTS” to everyone you meet.
As far as the rest of my look goes, I like to keep my rainy day outfits simple and comfortable. All black is my color of choice because if you end up getting drenched it’s much less obvious. I also prefer to wear leggings instead of jeans because I HATE the feeling of wet denim. Rainy day wear is all about comfort, in my opinion, because when you feel good you automatically look better. That’s another perk of wearing all black – it tends to look more chic and pulled together, even when it’s a simple look. Of course I topped off my rainy day look with a hat to camouflage how frizzy my hair can get. When you wear a hat, it looks like you’re trying….even though we all wear them to cover up bad hair days. It’s weird.
I love how unique each of our rainy day looks are – even without planning them! Seriously, none of us had any clue what the other people would come up with. Even in rainy day wear our personal styles come out, which is what Diversity Chic is all about! Don’t forget to link up your rainy day looks below and/or post them on social media and tag us! We want to see!
