Rain Gear Fit for April Showers

04/24/2007 at 12:04 PM ET

April showers may bring May flowers, but they also bring out the most adorable rain gear! We love Eva Mendes’s chic trench and hat — and were inspired to go find our own! Neiman Marcus’s colorful monogrammed umbrellas and Dooney & Bourke’s polka dotted ones will make gloomy days seem much brighter. Need to be hands free? Hat Attack has a great reversible rain hat . Outerwear is a must to fight off water and harsh winds, but

and Burberry’s crisp white rain jacket are fashionable enough to keep as wardrobe staples. Protect your feet from puddles with Tretorn’s rain shoes , or for serious storms, slip into these adorable anchor printed rain boots by Western Chief . Don’t forget to seal up your iPod with an iSkin protective case and make sure your watch is waterproof like this Alexander & Paul Quartz Timekeeper. For more rain gear ideas, pick up our April StyleWatch issue on stands now.

Expensive and childish.

Why are they showing Eva Mendes in this picture? She doesn’t even have the shoes on. She is wearing a rain jacket that looks good on her, but she is not wearing the shoes. Why even show her?

The boots are actually cute.

Wow, thanks so much. I’ve been looking for a good pair of rainboots forever and I love these ones. Thanks again. Very cute.

LOVE THEM! I would never pay that much for them. Its not like that is alot for shoes but they are funny and i wouldn’t wear them enough for that price! Also my Husband would hate them and not leave the house with me if i wore them!! LOL

I’ve been tempted to buy a cute pair of rain boots like these, but I would probably look kinda silly at my age.

Jennifer on

there cute if u were a child i wouldn’t wear them

Ungodly awful looking, and what adult would actually wear those? I would feel like the biggest idiot if I had those one. Those should definitely be restricted to children only!

Kady on

I like them (as I am under 20), but would never pay that much. I am just going to go to Target or to Kohls and get a cheap pair. I do like them though
