Rain Boots

Gone are the days of gaudy neon rain boots. These days, the footwear has taken on a chic new reinvention. Introducing: Moncler's Ginette quilted rain boots made from nylon and rubber. They're a practical choice for wet days but are fantastic travel companions to locales with snowy climes or rough terrain. In other words, they're quite versatile in terms of where you can wear them, and what you can wear them with.

Jacket

Jackets are the best piece to have in your wardrobe during the rainy season. Of course, we'd avoid anything made of suede as these are easily ruined by water. Instead, turn to jackets that are fuss free: easy to style and durable for the weather. Our top pick? Loewe's trapeze peacoat made from cotton-linen blend. It features an accented contrast leather pocket to add a bit of zest to the outfit—perfect for gloomy days.
