The Wet Gala is Columbia’s annual precipitation fashion event. When choosing an outfit for the rainiest days of the year so far, who slayed the hardest?

College walk became a catwalk for rainy day outfits as April really brought home the April showers in the last few days of the month. Check out the best looks below.

Simon, Senior Staff Writer

Simon chose to accessorize with a bag of Xtra cheesy goldfish, a pop of color that harmonized with the yellow-green of his umbrella. The blue sneakers tie the whole fit together. Collegecore meets kidcore in the best way.

Sydney, Science Editor

Sydney goes the opposite direction from Simon, wearing an all-dark outfit for a classic New York style. Sneakers are a bold choice for rain, but that black umbrella looks sturdy!

Emma, Deputy News Editor

Emma wins BEST DRESSED at the 2023 Wet Gala. With a stunning and sleek blue dress, a purse providing a contrasting pop of white, and a classic black umbrella, Emma shows us how it’s done.
