While getting around in rainy weather can be a bit of a drag, the attractive boots, umbrellas, hats, jackets, and gloves featured below will make navigating even the most torrential downpour a little less dreary.
Water-soaked clothes are one of the worse things about getting caught in the rain, so be sure to outfit yourself in a water-resistant jacket on days when the forecast calls for drizzle. Target's Merona line offers water repellent jackets for both men and women for under $50!

An umbrella is an absolute must have in winter, but why opt for a boring style when you can bring a little color to an otherwise dreary day? We're smitten with the adorable cloud- and polka-dot-printed-versions from ModCloth ($40).

Cute Rain Shoes
Walking in the rain is a surefire way to ruin good leather shoes, so make sure you have a pair of rain boots or other water-resistant shoes to get your from point A to point B. Right now discount shoe retailer DSW has a good selection of all-weather shoes and boots priced under $50. And Target.com always has a killer selection of rubber Wellingtons.

When it's merely drizzling, carrying an umbrella can be more trouble than it's worth, but without an overhead cover you'll still end up with wet hair-a bad-hair day in the making! To avoid limp locks, pick up a jaunty rain hat, which will look supercute when paired with a jacket and scarf.

A good pair of gloves does more than keep hands warm and dry-they accentuate your outfit, too. We love the leather and tweed pair below ($20 at Target) for women. The men's gloves even feature fabric on the fingers that makes them touch-screen-compatible-meaning guys won't have to remove their gloves to use their iPhones. Genius!
