If you're on the East Coast, chances are you know Sandy (Hurricane Sandy, that is) pretty well already. But this force of nature isn't the only reason we're honing in on the rainy-day fashion essentials. As Fall settles in, and Winter is but a severe temperature drop away, it's important to have the right layers and add-ons that will not only keep you warm, but keep you dry. An umbrella is key (and we're kind of obsessed with this plaid-infused one), as is slick outerwear. Whatever your coat preference may be — anorak, puffer, or trench — we've got it in its best waterproof rendition. Plus, you'll definitely need some boot socks, toasty headgear, and, if conditions worsen, a backup travel umbrella, too. In effect, we promise the perfect mix of sleek and functional rainy-day must haves. For the complete storm-trooper detail, head right this way.
