We in the Tri-State Area appear to have officially entered that awkward, between-season transition period during which Central Park accumulates seven inches of snow one week and welcomes drizzly, muggy rain the next. But! That only means we're marching closer and closer to the frolicking springtime weather — which also means that summer is right around the corner. Before we go ahead and plan our beach vacays, we have to brace ourselves for all those April-showers-that-bring-May flowers.
We come in riiiiiiiiight here: Speaking as someone who has yet to own a dedicated, functional rain coat, this is the year I change my tune (because I'm admittedly very tired of being swathed in that aforementioned drizzly, muggy rain). Luckily for me, there's a whole variety of fashion-y rain gear available at all price points, so we can all be swathed in water-resistant, rubberized cotton, instead. You can click through the slideshow below to see, and shop, 29 of our favorites out there right now, which we should consider snapping up before summer's here and it's too late.
