With April showers around the corner, March is the perfect month to prepare. Here are a few accessories to help you weather a storm in style:

The Brella Bag
When it's raining and you find yourself doing the bag-baby-dog-umbrella shuffle, the Brella Bag may save the day. An umbrella holder/harness designed to slip on over your head to give you the hands-free ability to do many tasks at once while being protected from the rain or sun, you can use it while shopping, running errands or even golfing. ($22.95, Brellabag.com)

No Drip Umbrellas
Since your umbrella is supposed to keep you dry, it's ironic when you end up soaked trying to collapse it. The No Drip Umbrella aims to solve this problem with a special built-in case that prevents water from dripping everywhere after you're indoors. ($15.99, Amazon.com)

Melissa Shoes
Plastic fantastic! Fashion truly meets function with these waterproof shoe options. The cool and beyond-comfy styles for him, her and the little ones come in a range of juicy colors and are not only practical, eco-friendly and vegan, but fun! They even smell like bubble gum — giving a whole new meaning to "smell my feet." With amazing collaborations from the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier and more, you'll want to scoop up more than just one style. (Women's and babies', $79-$185, Saks.com; men's, $145, AlterBrooklyn.com)

Swim covers
These sleek modern galoshes act as a stylish solution to protect your boots, heels and flats from rainy-day puddles and melting snow. Swim's City Slippers are great for days when you want to wear your favorite pumps but the weather isn't cooperating. With soft silicon padding inside, extra traction to prevent slipping, and both low and medium cuts to accommodate bows or buckles, the overshoes will fit almost any heel height and thickness. They come in a variety of colors and sizes ranging from XS-L. ($89-$129; 514-904-4463)
