In Los Angeles, we don't get much rain. So when it rains, it feels like it pours. But we need all the water we can get because of the drought. I don't have the proper gear for this kind of weather. If I had it my way, I would go out to a Burberry store and buy a trench coat like the one Audrey Hepburn wears in Breakfast at Tiffany's. But this is nonsensical when there are so many inexpensive alternatives.
This Old Navy rain coat comes in several different bright colors to make your day more cheerful.
Banana Republic has a crinkled leather jacket. If you have a faux leather jacket, you can wear that since the material is water-proof.
