Embrace a Bad Hair Day the Audrey Way!

Here in Maine we are getting lucky. We will get some high winds and a lot of rain today, but hurricane Irene has weakened so greatly that the Weather Channel has downgraded her to a tropical storm, which can still be bad, but it's nothing we haven't experience here in the northeast before. So I say, during this tropical storm we are calling Irene, embrace this bad hair day the Audrey way! Carry a cool umbrella.(just watch out for the wind) Wear a chic trench. Pop on a mod kerchief.(that might be better than the umbrella idea) Or just let it rain down and make your wet hair be part of your look! When you love fashion you can't let mother nature get you down. You know what they say, when you can't beat 'em, join 'em! 
Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard in Breakfast at Tiffany's find their love for each other during a down poor. How romantic! 
Leighton Meester celebrates the rain in a classic trench! If you don't own one, then I strongly suggest you go shopping. Weather permitting of course ;)

Of course trench coats can come in many different colors. I own a green one, but I made sure I had the classic khaki before I purchased the color. The classic khaki trench is the one that will never go out of style. I absolutely adore this timeless trench from Burberry. If it is a little too boring for you, take off the belt it came with and try a different one. It will dress it up for an evening out, but don't be afraid to wear it this way during the day as well. See below for some ideas:
