Portland Rainy Day Attire
The rain is back in the Pacific Northwest and I’m excited about sipping lattes as I walk through the rain. I quickly learned when I moved to Oregon, especially Portland, that umbrellas aren’t used here unless you want to look like a tourist. True Oregonians just invest in a good raincoat and put their hoods up and go.
Last year I invested in a coat that would keep me dry and warm, so I could enjoy the rainy days in style. Note: Columbia no longer has this particular coat in stock online. However, I linked similar trench coats below for you.
You can wear any kind of shoes on a rainy day. I do prefer ones that will keep my feet dry. Being that I wasn’t going to be outside in the rain for too long the day I wore this outfit I opted for Chuck Taylors instead of my favorite rain boots.
I love how timeless and practical a waterproof khaki colored trench is. To make this Portland rainy day attire your own, pair a khaki trench with your favorite outfit. For ease of exploring use a crossbody purse. The day I wore this outfit, I opted for a sweater, Chuck Taylors, and dark wash skinny jeans.
