bring on the april showers.

by ray siegel

London and Seattle get bad raps when it comes to precipitation levels, but it actually rains cats and dogs over in New York City too. As the saying goes, "April showers bring May flowers."

But we don't necessarily mind April showers--or even an April downpour; it gives us an excuse to take a break from leather motorcycle jackets in favor of raincoats and trenches. Now we're more psyched than ever to buy a new raincoat, thanks to all of the cool updates this season: there are florals, leather sleeves, and even hoods with ears attached.
