When the weather is gloomy and wet, sporting a practical outfit usually trumps choosing to go with a fashionable look. But, have you ever wondered how you can possibly look fab even when its pouring cats and dogs? Since we love helping you out with any fashion dilemmas, we thought of coming up with chic rainy-day looks all month of August by picking four essential pieces to sport in wet weather. The most essential piece? A jacket, of course! 

When picking the jacket for you, remember that you don't need to stick to dark colors! Be bold and choose neon brights or two-toned pieces. We chose a jacket that's totally cute and we show you how to style the piece two-ways—one outfit for school and one for a night out with friends. Click on the gallery to see how you can dress up your very own rain jacket!
