Equip yourself with sassy boots and bright rain gear

April showers bring May flowers, so be prepared for the wet days ahead with some cute new gear.

The one sunny spot during April's inevitable gloomy days is getting to wear cute spring rain boots and jackets and carry a bright, colorful umbrella.

Forget those boring old black rubbers. Rain boots today fuse fashion with functionality. They're a great place to find a print or style that fits your personality -- go head, jump through some puddles in them and look great doing it.

Umbrellas are another easy way to add just splash of style to your outfit on a glum day. Great in a classic print like navy and white polka dots, this accessory never goes out of style.

Finally, a bright, colorful rain jacket can brighten your outfit -- and your day -- whether you're navigating through a drizzle or a downpour.
