View in slideshow

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.
