Rainy Days: Combat Bland Style

We've experienced our fair share of strange weather here in San Francisco. Usually one bad outfit is okay, but when weather.com predicts a month of on-and-off rain, we must fill the void somehow. The conundrum is what to wear when getting wet is inevitable and style becomes sacrificed. We've accumulated a few stylish alternatives to the eye-sore yellow rubber boots:

1. Ilse Jacobsen Rubber Combat Boots, $120: Exhaust the combat boot trend even in the rain.

2. Aldo Shoe Protector, $9.99: Protect your skin ... calfskin that is. Spray a coat on your leather and watch them become waterproof.

3. Oakley on Gilt Man: Breathable fabric, water-resistant, and tough material make Oakley the go-to for men's rainwear. Hurry because the sale goes quick on January 21.

4. Guess Melody Trench, $148: A San Francisco play on the classic trench.

5. Skyy Vodka, $__: Do as the Germans do to stay warm. Mix with a few seasonal fruits for a stylish way to stay toasty.
