It's almost spring, which means the snowy weather will soon be gone — but the rain is right around the corner.
Whether you love the rain or hate it, I think we can all agree that getting caught in a storm without the right gear is the absolute worst, which is why right now is a great time to stock up on clothing and accessories that'll keep you dry as well as looking cute.
From bright and fun rain boots to super-cute umbrellas, take a look at some of the must-have items you'll want in your wardrobe as the storms start to roll in.
A spring essential - bright yellow rubber boots that are glossy, water-tight rubber and have a traction-gripping sole that'll prevent you from sliding all over the place.
SHOP IT: Nordstrom, $145
Or a taller pair of boots, for when the puddles are particularly deep. It has a cushioned insole as well as odour-controlling technology, so you can say goodbye to stinky socks.
SHOP IT: Nordstrom, $112 (originally $150)
A windproof and waterproof hooded jacket for women with a fun retro design and a belted waist for a cinched-in look.
SHOP IT: Sport Chek, $150
A lightweight, water-resistant poncho featuring a spacious hood, an elevated zip neckline, handy front pockets and a boxy fit throughout.
SHOP IT: Everlane, $140
Or a stretchy softshell with a feisty interior leopard print that sheds water while keeping you warm and comfortable.
SHOP IT: Nordstrom, $100 (originally $150)
A water-resistant and streamlined tote that'll protect everything (including your precious laptop!) from any sudden downpours.
SHOP IT: Sport Chek, $110
Or a floral backpack with pretty gold-plated zippers that's lightweight, waterproof, and durable. One reviewer says it's perfect for Canadian weather and that the side pockets make it easy to grab your water bottle or umbrella.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $35
A super-sweet umbrella that you can see through, which is a blessing when trying to navigate through a crowd when everyone is also carrying an umbrella.
SHOP IT: Kate Spade, $38
Or an umbrella with an iridescent interior that folds in reverse, which keeps rainwater contained instead of soaking the area around you when you close it.
SHOP IT: Nordstrom, $30
And a cute little travel-sized umbrella that'll fit into your purse, backpack, or bag for those just-in-case moments, because being surprised by a downpour is no fun.
