April Showers Style: Feel-Good Outfits For Rainy Days


DENIM JACKETDENIM JACKET

As we transition into the new season ahead, it's time to ditch the heavy coats for lighter layers and embrace the fresh, floral styles that spring fashion has to offer. 

While April showers bring May flowers, they also pose the challenge of staying dry (and stylish!) amidst the puddle-strewn pavements we navigate day to day. But just because the weather outside may sometimes be gloomy doesn’t mean your outfits have to be. 

At Joe Browns, we believe that every day is an opportunity to express your individuality through your wardrobe, come rain or shine. So, let's dive into some tips and tricks to keep you looking and feeling fabulous this spring.




Embrace Layering

When it comes to dressing for unpredictable weather, layers are key. Luckily for you, we know a thing or two about all of the layering essentials at Joe Browns! Not only do layers allow you to adjust your clothing throughout the day, but they also give you a chance to experiment with complementary colour pairings for each of your outfits. 

Start with a lightweight base layer, such as a cami or long-sleeved top and layer with versatile pieces, such as jumpers and cardigans. If you want something a little more unique, layering a chic waistcoat is sure to make a sophisticated statement that’ll instantly elevate your look. 

When it comes to your choice of outerwear, a leather jacket is the perfect water-resistant piece to keep you dry on rainy days while still prioritising chic style.




Experiment with Texture

Cloudy days provide the perfect opportunity to experiment with different textures in your outfits. Think cosy knitwear, sleek leather boots, and lightweight trench coats. Mixing and matching textures not only adds visual interest to your look but also adds an extra layer of warmth and comfort. Just take a look at our guide to layering knitwear for more tips.

On those cloudy days just before summer, it’s normal to feel a little disappointed that spring hasn’t brought another warm sunny day. When this happens, we find injecting a touch of colour is just what the doctor ordered to brighten up even the greyest of days. Colour psychology studies show that vibrant shades, such as sunny yellows and zesty oranges help us to feel happiness, while cool blues and sea greens make us feel a sense of calm. 

Additional accessories, such as scarves, belts, and statement jewellery, are great ways to incorporate pops of colour into your ensemble.

Learn more about mood-boosting colours in our inspiration article, Beat the January Blues, where we delve into this remarkable hue, its different shades and the emotions commonly connected with them.




Opt for Waterproof Footwear

One of the essential elements of a rainy-day outfit is proper footwear. The number one hero here? Leather! Any leather shoe will be robust enough to repel water, so you can go about your daily errands without needing to worry about puddle-flooded pavements getting in your way. 

Whether you prefer knee high boots, classic leather trainers, or biker boots, any of these styles will ensure your feet stay dry and comfortable all day long.
