If you have ever experienced the pedestrian lifestyle of city living in the great Northeast then you know there are a few important tools you must have in your arsenal for bad-weather survival. The first is a no-brainer: comfortable waterproof shoes. You never want to go 15 blocks in your five-inch Jimmy Choo's. I don't care if Carrie Bradshaw made it look easy, that is where television and real life part ways. Number two: a warm coat, hat and gloves. While it may not have been cool to wear these things growing up in suburbia—where you run from the family SUV a few feet into the toasty warm school—city kids know the value of a good hat. And the last but definitely not least is the one item that should live large in every attaché case, purse and backpack: a high quality, never-lets-the-wind-turn-it-inside-out umbrella.
