Spring showers have come early, but we're not letting a few raindrops ground our fitness plans. With the right gear, you can still enjoy a run, hike, or bike in the rain — and you can look pretty stylish doing it, too! From pants, jackets, and shoes, see what waterproof gear we'll be wearing during this season's frequent showers.
Why couldn't Katie Holmes have had lunch at Joan's on Third when I was there during LA Fashion Week?! Oh well. The actress took a break from gowns and opted for a more down-to-earth look for the afternoon. Still, she gave her yellow trench coat and black skinny jeans a kick of fancy via the strappy heels. Armani has its place, but I like the laid-back Katie!
Now that the weather is warming up, it's rain you've got to worry about, not snow. Don't let a little drizzle keep you from exercising outdoors.
This Isis Whirlwind Shell ($79) is not only waterproof, but it's windproof, too, so you'll stay warm in this slightly chilly air. The inner lining is made with a breathable microcell coating; so if you sweat, the moisture won't get trapped making you wet and cold. The outer layer dries quickly, which also keeps you warm. It's super lightweight, only two ounces, so you won't even realize you're wearing it. Another cool thing is that the zippered pocket doubles as a stuff sack, so you can easily pack it on a hiking trip or bike ride. If you're not into the Bluebell color (shown), it also comes in a light-green color called Endive.
This slick and stylish trench coat and hat will definitely have your wee one singing in the rain.
