El Niño may be destined to bring an onslaught of downpours to drought-parched California, but don't let it rain on your style game. Stay dry with the right water-resistant pieces, while punchy color and playful designs are antidotes to gray days. And don't forget the waterproof mascara. Because raccoon eyes are best left to the critters.
