68 Ways to Stay Dry

Rainy Day Gear, from Shoulder Umbrellas to Stylish Rain Boots

— October 15, 2009 — Art & Design
Except for those freakishly-cold places around the world, snow hasn’t quite arrived yet. Rain, however, hasn’t disappeared and this means we will all need plenty of rainy day gear. 

While I may be the only person to admit this, I do hate rain more than I hate snow. Snow piles up and gives everything a white brightness; rain just makes people smell bad--which is why staying dry is imperative. Check out this cluster of rainy day gear. You’ll find everything you need to stay dry this season, whether it’s a brass-knuckle umbrella or biodegradable rain gear!
