I think we can all agree that winter outfits top anything when it comes to chic fashion. However, when it's pouring rain, sometimes we find it hard to balance between practicality and chic outfits. Why does it have to be either or? Well, thank god for street style, because it has once again proven that rainy day outfits can look as good as any other winter outfit and there are a few tips we can take into account to help us manage that ourselves. 

So, here are a 5 easy ideas for outfits for a rainy day that look really cool...

1. A Raincoat but Make It a Statement


Sometimes it's just too risky to pull out your favorite wool coat on a muddy rainy day, especially if you live in a dusty or polluted city. So you have go to take out a raincoat. A raincoat can actually look really cool and be your outfit statement in and of itself. Find one that's bold and patterned or a really flattering neutral one like this one above...

2. Rain Boots


If you live somewhere muddy or you know you're going to be outside walking all day, then rain boots are the way to go. They're not just practical and protective, they actually look really cool, especially the glossy lacquered ones. I live in a city where it rarely rains but women wear them all the time just because the look so chic and wintery. 

3. Shiny Vinyl Coat Trend


We actually recently wrote about this glossy coat trend and it's perfect for rainy days. Shiny vinyl coats are definitely a statement and maybe they're not for everyone, but they are extremely chic and waterproof. Remember, you can also go for a black one if you're not comfortable wearing something both glossy and colorful. 

4. Clear Transparent Raincoats


The transparent coats trend came to popularity around a year ago. They're especially cool for those who live in cities that are not too cold, but get a lot of rain. That way, you don't have to wear a coat that makes you too warm. They look really nice with dresses and skirts. And they're a great way to show off your cool outfit underneath without having to cover it with a regular coat. 

5. Casual and Active Wear


For comfy casual looks or athleisure, waterproof puffer jackets are an amazing option, because they're extremely warming, which you need after a workout or a long day. For a casual everyday look on a rainy day, you can wear a puffer jacket with a turtle neck, jeans and combat boots
