Despite the newly melted snow in some states, spring has officially sprung. While you may be dreaming of shorts, there is still a rainy season to slosh through. Just because spring weather may be occasionally gloomy, that doesn’t mean your outfit has to be.

Since fashion never takes a raincheck, lifting your spring spirits is essential to finding your rainy-day style groove. If you’re wondering what to wear under your umbrella, here are five ideas to consider.

Chase Cloudy Days Away with Color 

Embrace the unexpected forecast and slip into your brightest brights to combat the clouds. A raindrop is no match for a beautiful purple dress that makes you feel optimistic about the day, regardless of what’s happening outside. Break up the routine of dreary weather by adding pops of color to your wardrobe. Even if it doesn’t make the rain go away, adding some stunning dresses in bright, vivid colors to your closet is an excellent distraction from dark skies.

April Showers Bring May Flowers 

One reason to love spring is the return of floral print dresses. If it feels like the trees and plants will never bloom, plant your garden in your wardrobe with feminine, flowy flowers. By summer, your closet will be brimming with fresh floral picks, giving you many stunning options for weddings, garden parties, and special occasions.

Pick Playful Patterns and Pastels 

It may be cloudy and grey outside, but your rainy-day outfit doesn’t have to match, as that’s no excuse to dress like a spring slouch. Slip into a playful pattern dress, then accessorize with a matching umbrella and boots. It’s incredible what new pastel petite dresses for work can do to perk up your mood.

Puddle Jump Like a Pro 

Does your work wardrobe need a little spring inspiration? Refreshing your collection of petite work dresses can make those rainy office days seem a little less damp. There are many stunning spring styles, including floral dresses with shrugs, delicate lace details, wrap dresses, fun necklines, frocks with flare, and more. Sleeveless dresses can function as professional apparel; you can wear a shawl or cardigan in the office and sleeveless in the summer. Pair your favorite dress with some cute rain boots, a jacket, and a bright tote, and you’ll make a splash upon arriving at your workplace.

Embrace the Rain 

It won’t be long before the harsh heat of summer hits, so appreciate the cooler, rainier days of spring while we have them. Spring is about preparing for summer by lightening our textures, fabrics, and colors. Say goodbye to velvet and wool and hello to chiffon and lace. Spring is also the ideal time to reinvent your style, whether adding romantic details like puff sleeves and sweetheart necklines, flowy florals, bright prints, pretty pastels, or whatever makes your spring heart sing.
