We are a four-season country, but most of us only dress for two-seasons – summer and winter. We often forget that nestled in between these two extremes lies several months of gorgeous, but highly unpredictable weather where running around in a giant parka or in shorts and a t-shirt is less than ideal. This is why having “transitional” apparel is so important. These key pieces of outerwear offer the perfect marriage between fashion, functionality and practicality. Whether you’re a 20 year old dancing in the rain or a 50 year old going on your afternoon walk, these pieces are a sure home run.

While people write books upon books, style guides upon style guides on what you can wear for Summer, Fall & Winter, few pay attention to the dampening nature of Spring. It is precisely for this reason that we tapped our stylists to put together some of their favourite outfits that will allow you to beat the rain, in style.
