Add Color to a Rainy Day: Even When the Sun Doesn’t Shine!

By on September 1, 2014

Ladies, it’s hard enough to look dazzling on a rainy day. The humidity flattens straight hair and curly-girls end up with hairdos as puffy as their pet poodles! But fashionistas, take heart. Don’t let your style suffer on rainy days. Fight back with color, and a fabulous raincoat and accessories designed to keep your mood sunny on the dreariest days.

Thanks to the latest fashion choices, drab weather no longer means having to wear boring, menswear-style raincoats. For example, Lorene Drabo, owner and designer at Pour la Pluie (that’s French for “for the rain,” ma Cherie!), hand sews and sells beautifully-tailored rainwear on her online boutique. The uniqueness of Pour la Pluie’s rainwear line lies in the selection of print fabrics ranging from whimsical to sophisticated, in a cut that flatters any figure.

Best of all, these coats are made of cotton fabrics that have been treated with a semi-gloss laminate overlay, rendering the fabric water repellant yet maintaining breathability.
