Unless you’re my friend Megan, who lives in San Diego, where she makes a point to tell me almost weekly how PERFECT the weather is, and how it NEVER rains, you’ll probably need a rain parka in your outerwear arsenal.
The nice thing about parkas is you can wear yours over everything from a suit to jeans and sneakers.
A trench or a mac coat are also good options for bad weather, especially with a suited-up look, but I don’t believe a business formal outfit that says “Buy! Sell!” necessarily mandates a fancier jacket. Just make sure your parka layers (not lumbers) over your suit jacket. You should still be going for a slim fit, despite the lousy weather. And really, so long as you’re not sporting a backpack with your anorak, you’re fine.
Above are three parkas to keep you dry despite fall’s frequently spitting skies.
More jackets, but also galoshes and stylish umbreallas. Because if the Walgreens’ toothpaste aisle where I spent twenty minutes this morning agonizing over my decision (Do I go with cavity protection? Whitening effects? Flouride? No flouride? aHhhdlskjfd) is any indication, three choices is definitely not enough.
