Dressing for summer has a new challenge now that we live in a time of complete weather madness: Sweltering midday heat can give way to downpours (and if you're lucky, magnificent rainbows), and then we're back to sunny skies in a matter of minutes. To keep your white jeans or bare feet from getting soaked, we gathered up some tools to keep you clean and dry: tiny umbrellas, lightweight ponchos, cute rain hats that can be stashed easily in tote bags, and a tiny towel, along with makeup remover and a compact brush to fix scraggly hair and makeup. And since the last thing you want is tall Wellies in the humidity, we've found some great ankle-skimming rain boots as alternatives. Click through to assemble your go-to kit for summer rain.
