Rainy Day Dilemma

Top: H&M (similar in a dark wash for fall); Cropped Trench: Banana Republic; Skirt: Forever 21; Boots: Hunter; Belt: H&M (recent); Umbrella: Gap (cute version here)
I find that people normally do one of two things when the weather is wet and gloomy.

1) Reach for the dark colours of their closet - charcoal grey, black, navy, etc - for a look like this.
2) Go polar opposite with a full on ensemble of bright, cheery colours, in hopes of counteracting the sombre mood that rain tends to bring on.

Yesterday it rained on and off, with peaks of sunshine popping out every so often, so I settled on a combination of these two styles. Grabbing my trusty black trench and Hunters, and offsetting them with a sleeveless chambray top, neon belt, and bright floral umbrella, I felt ready for a day of unpredictable weather. Aside from the the fact that I love the combination of chambray and floral, I also liked the way this colour scheme was subtle enough to easily transition throughout the day. What are your go-to looks for rainy-days?
