11 Colorful Picks to Chase Away Rainy Day Blues

“Rain, rain, go away!” seems to be the most common thing I am hearing from the lovely customers who call in to speak to us here at Zappos lately.  While some people are still getting snow (and my deepest sympathies), the majority of the country is currently enjoying plenty of April showers. 

Rainy days can be dreary and a drag, putting us all into a major funk. Science has proven that bright colors not only enhance our mood, but also brighten up the moods of those around us. 

With that in mind, this week I’m bringing you a collection of bright and cheerful pieces guaranteed to lift your spirits- and those of your friends, family and coworkers. I’ve also included some great pieces of rain gear. Hunter rainboots have a very generously cut calf and the range of colors almost makes you want to start puddle- jumping like a little kid again. Hunter umbrellas solve the age-old problem of not being able to see where you’re going when walking with an umbrella. And, as always, I am in LOVE with Columbia’s outdoor gear. Pair them with amazing pops of color, and you’re sure to chase those rainy-day blues away!

Fancy Friday: Easy Ways to Dress Up Your Casual Staples

TGIFF! If you were wondering…the extra “F” is for “Fancy”. Here at the Zappos HQ, office dress code leans a lot towards the casual side. However, there are certain days that just call for a dose of fancy…Why not Friday?

Think about it. You’ve survived a long workweek full of meetings, errands and day-to-day stresses. End the week with major style--or should we say, start the weekend off right by getting your fancy on! It’s all about dressing up and feeling confident as you head into the weekend! And believe us, a pair of fancy heels, a cute skirt or dapper loafers can do some amazing things to re-energizing your entire style outlook.

Below are just a few easy ways to dress up some of your favorite casual staples like jeans, t-shirts and sweatshirts.

Casual Fridays? We say break away from the usual and start your own Fancy Friday trend instead!

For Her:

Boyfriend Jeans

featured style: Levi’s® Women’s 501 Customized Jeans

+

Sky-High Heels

featured style: Nine West Tatiana Pumps

Pairing relaxed-fit denim with dressier heels adds up to such an effortlessly chic look for both day and night. We particularly love oversized boyfriend jeans paired with super sexy pumps. It just elevates the look and keeps the jeans from looking frumpy.

 

Basic Tees

featured style: Splendid Vintage Whisper V-Neck Tee

+

Skirts

featured style: kensie Ponte Skirt

The unsung hero of our closets, basic tees are surprisingly versatile for a lot of different occasions. To dress up a simple cotton t-shirt, pair it with a knee-length skirt for the office, and a sparkly mini skirt for a night out. You can even let a printed or sequined skirt shine by pairing it with a very basic tee. It’s all about striking that perfect balance of laidback and feminine.

 

Sweatshirts/Pullover

featured style: Free People In A Hurry Hoodie

+

Leggings

featured style: HUE Floral Gleam Denim Skimmer Legging

Comfy up top, party in the bottom. That’s sort of the vibe this combo achieves with a mix of relaxed and dressy all in one easy-to-wear outfit. Take your oversized grey sweaters and sweatshirts up a notch with printed or textured leggings. The great part is, you can really go all out with the leggings here since the sweater is the more subdued element in this equation. Who says a sweatshirt has to be frumpy? Not with this killer combo!
