When the weather is grey and gloomy outside, it's a natural instinct to reach for something dark, boring and cosy to wear in the morning. It's hard to feel inspired to dress up in our nicest duds when it's pouring buckets outside. I get it, I get it. But sometimes I'll come across an immaculately dressed woman or that it-girl who just oozes cool, dressed to the nines with an umbrella in hand, skipping gracefully across the crosswalk, avoiding puddles without a care in the world. These are ladies that are truly dedicated to style; even in depressing weather, they are a ray of sunshine - a rainbow, perhaps - amongst the gloomy skies. Take a few cues from these ladies below and amp up your rainy-day style.


Pin-up girls and umbrellas? A mighty fine combination.

Carrie Bradshaw is the queen of rainy-day glamour. She wore this get-up on a gloomy day during a sojourn in Paris.
