In Like a Lion (Tamers)

March: snow, rain, more snow, mud, slush, maybe some late snow. Not exactly conducive to cute outfits. Don't let slush season get you down though, we have some tried and true spring fashion items that will bring you through those puddles to sandal season without compromising style.

clockwise from top center:

Don't go cute with your umbrella, save that for your wellies if you must. Find the best classic umbrella here.

We need some color but not TOO much color. This subtle color pop works on a dreary day without screaming I CAN'T WAIT FOR SUMMER OMG, find more here.

Back to your Barbour. The navy quilted is a solid choice, but if you find it just too staid for your taste get the cuff monogrammed (we chose a stone thread) for just the littlest bit of flair. Ask Michael at Yoicks for some suggestions, he won't steer you wrong.

A trench. A staple closet item that you can literally wear with anything and look somewhat pulled together and respectable (Chloë Sevigny’s character in Whit Stillman’s film The Last Days of Disco goes jogging in Central Park in a trench coat and it's perfection). This one is from J. Crew.

Dubarry's are a solid investment, totally waterproof and virtually indestructible, these boots have taken us from a board meeting to the horse barn without skipping a beat.

Tried and true LL Bean boots never go out of style.

If you need a little bit more frill with your functionality try these ribbon tie boots from Joules on for size.

Liberty print is always right.

These boots are a little bit more sleek and whole lot more sophisticated than your average puddle stomper.

We love this luxe buttery yellow boot, such a springy shade.

(center): How can we do a rain boot post without some Hunters? This asymmetric colorblock print is to die for.
