Springtime (and April in particular) is notoriously rainy, but it's all leading up to brighter times ahead. In the meantime, we might as well try to be stylish and prepared on even the gloomiest days. If there's any perk to all this rain, it's the endless fashion potential of rain gear. The below boots, hats, coats, and ponchos ensure that you look your best and stay as dry as possible.

Barbour Abbey Wellington Boots

A tall Wellington boot is a rain wardrobe staple. The sturdy soles on these rubber Wellies will keep you from ever slipping, and the high cut of the boots will make sure your legs don't get splashed, no matter how deep the puddle you step in.
