WESTBURY - It’s time for April showers, but rainy days don’t mean you can’t be stylish! News 12’s Elisa DiStefano headed to Hicks Nursery in Westbury with Newsday’s Anne Bratskeir to find the slickest rain gear.

From raincoats to umbrellas, Bratskeir says anything can be fashionable. Such as a Kate Spade umbrella, available at Bloomingdale’s, which features bright colors and graphics. When picking a coat or poncho, Bratskeir suggests picking polka dots or fun designs to turn a rainy day into something fun.

Terra NY, DKNY, Milly and Via Spiga all also offer fun rain gear for the spring. Even Hicks offers rain coats for the little ones.
