Threads for Thought: The Color During the Storm

April may almost be over, but Mother Nature seems to think its still OK for cold weather up north. Down here in Florida, however, rain and shine is considered our summer motto and being prepared for this dilemma calls for either an umbrella or a raincoat. Umbrellas are a nuisance once they are no longer needed and I'm guessing your raincoat isn't exactly turning heads.
Burberry, Ferragamo, and Gucci are all on board.
Recall the Morton Salt logo, it features are little girl in the rain with a bright yellow raincoat on. Now I'm not saying it has to be yellow, but this rainy season calls for a colorful option in your anti-wetness arsenal. Most of you out there probably have traditional tan or black or something with a plaid pattern to it, but now is the time to either put it in the back of your closet or throw it out.

There are plenty of colors to choose from and a variety of designers who are participating in this little Spring/Summer movement, so you will have a good selection to choose from. The fact that its a bright color will be enough, but if you want to take it up a notch, find one that is blocked into different colors to add some extra contrast!
