How are you enjoying rainy day week so far? It’s actually a (really!) rainy day where we live, so Bella and I decided to would be perfect to write-up this week’s style post: rain gear! I just love the rain coats we own for our dolls (especially the yellow Bitty Twin one, which is adorable!), so it was quite fun looking at the ones for sale in Etsy shops. Here are some of our favorites…
1. This fun rain set is just the thing to brighten up a stormy day! The cheerful and spring-y color palette of pink and light green, along with the playful patterns create are mixed and matched, but still blend together well. We suggest pairing this set with basic white or pieces so you can let the coat and oh-so adorable boots shine :)

2. Just because it’s raining out, doesn’t mean your doll has to cover her whole outfit! To add a bit of rainy day fun, you can use accessories like hats or, in this case, boots! The color is peppy and happy, but the buckles add more edge and visual interest.

3. Instead of doing a bold pattern on the outside, why not add detail in a pretty lining? In rain coats, a hood or, in this set, the collar, can show off the inside pattern, but since it’s only peeking through, it’s not too overpowering. You can then incorporate the colors or pattern in other places in the outfit to tie it together.

4. Finally, for a doll going for a more sophisticated look, try a trench coat in a solid color. It’s understated, and you can still add embellishment with things like buttons or a belt. Even better, if it’s in a neutral shade, it will go with almost every thing else in your doll’s wardrobe!
