My life motto has always been, "When it rains, get wet," but occasionally, it is nice to stay warm and dry when you are heading to class or work ---and it is always good to have options other than an oversized, monogramed sorority rain jacket! 

So, without further ado, here are your rainy day essentials:

1. Hairstyles

Side buns


Braided Messy Buns

Half-up hairstyles
