Unpredictable and inclement weather can leave you feeling unprepared in your outfit, especially in places with varying climates. Luckily, there are ways you can dress to be better prepared for all kinds of weather. Paloma Clothing, serving people in Portland, Oregon, and the surrounding metro area, offers a diverse selection of all-weather clothing from locally-owned and eco-friendly clothing brands. Here, we share tips about dressing for all weather in style.

All-Weather Clothing Essentials

Whether you live in Portland or another city with wide-ranging weather conditions, dressing for the day can sometimes be a challenge. However, it can be made simpler by shopping for a selection of basics that can be used for layering in different weather. This is a great way to be ready whether the temperature is warm and sunny, cold and snowy, or rainy and windy. Some of the all-weather clothing basics that we recommend at Paloma Clothing include:


Sweaters, especially cardigans, are a must-have for inclement weather as they can easily be taken on or off as the weather changes. They are also easy to layer under and over other clothing. So, you can wear a long-sleeved shirt, sweater, and jacket for really cold days and just a sweater over a short-sleeved shirt on warmer days. One way to always be ready for unexpected weather changes throughout the day is to keep a lightweight sweater in your office or car.

Lightweight Jackets and Vests

Lightweight jackets and vests are another essential in dressing for all weather conditions. They are great for layering over your sweaters when it gets chillier without making you overheat in the sunshine. With many different styles to choose from, you can find a lightweight jacket that is hooded or not, zip-up or button-up, patterned or solid to meet your specific style and preference.

For people who live in rainier environments, Paloma Clothing offers raincoats from ILSE JACOBSEN HORNBÆK, a brand known worldwide for high-quality rainwear inspired by the Nordic environment.

Lightweight Cottons and Linens

Lightweight cotton and linens are especially suitable for inclement weather conditions during spring and fall when the weather can shift drastically throughout the day. Since they’re made of lightweight materials, they can be suitable layered under jackets when it’s chillier and once it gets hotter without weighing you down. Paloma Clothing also has a range of other tops and blouses available that are suitable for many kinds of weather, including button-ups, turtlenecks, and more.


Don’t underestimate the power of accessories when dressing for all weather conditions, as they’re one of the best ways to add or take away some warmth. Paloma Clothing offers many different accessories to help you prepare for all seasons, including:

These items are easy to fit in your purse or suitcase to help protect you from inclement weather quickly. They’re also available in a range of materials and styles, so you can find the best kind for all your favorite outfits.

These are just some of the basics available at Paloma Clothing that can help you build an all-weather wardrobe. Paloma Clothing offers a wide variety of brands, ranging from well-known to up-and-coming. These include Aventura Clothing, Cutloose Clothing, Nic + Zoe, and many more.
