April showers bring May flowers...and these cute rainy-day style essentials

Rain, rain, go away...

...but at least these cute accessories are here to stay! As we get closer to the bright, sunny days of summer, the seemingly never-ending showers of spring can put us in a rather blue mood. Add some sunshine to your rainy days by snagging one (or two) of these *adorable* essentials.


No rainy-day is complete without a raincoat, so you may as well invest in one that keeps you dry *and* fashionable. This pretty pink jacket is from Amazon and comes in 11 other fabulous hues.

Rain boots

Ditch your old black rain boots for this pair of precious yellow ones that will be all the sunshine you need on a rainy day. The low cut provides super breathable comfort and goes perfectly with your fave pair of leggings or jeans. We found these on Amazon for an impressive price of $36.

Sweat set

Sweat sets have become so popular since the beginning of COVID-19, and TBH, no one's wondering why. Whether you're watching a movie or baking a sweet treat, a sweat set is the comfiest and easiest thing to throw on when you're stuck at home. This trendy tie-dye one is from Forever 21.


Everyone needs an umbrella, whether you're walking to class or just having a rainy-day photo shoot with your bestie (ah, so aesthetic). Walk (or take pics) in style with this girly scalloped umbrella from Kate Spade.

Portable movie projector 

Yes, we said it: a portable movie projector. Snuggle up at home (or anywhere) with your pets and fam, plug in a phone with your fave film and let *all* the cozy vibes sink in. Find this mini projector at Walmart for only $30.

Cozy blanket...or huge hoodie

Get ready for ultimate rainy day comfort with this huge blanket-hoodie. Not only does it make the perfect movie-watching "outfit," but it makes filming TikTok dances 10x funnier. Originally shown on Shark Tank, The Comfy can be bought on Amazon in 16 fun colors.
