I write this as the rain is LASHING it down, lashing it down I tell you and all I want to do is curl up under the duvet and wait for May to come around again. Sadly, not an option when you’re required to, you know, function as a grown-up and all that. Sigh. Soooo, as hibernation isn’t on the cards, I figured shopping (online, natch, I’m no way leaving the house!) seemed like a good alternative AND I thought I’d focus on… rain-macs! See what I did there?I bought my absolute favourite favourite ever rain-mac last Spring from The Outnet. It was one of those moment in a lifetime finds. Ganni. Camouflage. In my size. Last one left. Amazing reduction. Basically the universe delivered it to me and I have been internally grateful. I. Bloody. Love. It. But, it’s sold out everywhere now, sorry…. not really what you want to hear eh? But here’s my round-up of some other amazing, amazing and chic raincoats that would keep you equally stylish – and more importantly dry! – in any downpour.
Starting with Ganni and yes, this is an investment at £230, but it’s utterly gorgeous and timeless and what better way to avoid getting soggy than to wrap yourself in leopard print?! – buy here.
If you’re after something that’s less of a statement but more classic, then this original raincoat by Hunter is on the money and currently 40% off at £139 – buy here:I realise that this one won’t be for everyone, BUT bare with me – I think there is something so so fun and appealing about this striking ASOS Design holographic parka and after all, on a rainy day, wouldn’t you rather bring some pizzaz to your outfit?! – buy here, £120.Another classic look here, but this one is gorgeous not least because it’s flatteringly long and black but more importantly it has a teddy-bear fleece lining, which would be amazingly cosy on a cold rainy day. Fab! – £60, buy hereAlso love the look of this ASOS Design faux fur lined raincoat in beautiful shades of berry – £55, buy here.And finally, sharing a total total find with you from Stutterheim – a Swedish brand that has an amazing range of raincoats (browse the collections here, they’re gorgeous) – so check this out, reduced in the Black Friday sale from £229 to £57!!! – buy here. I love it in this red camouflage, but it’s also available in grey/stone and denim colour ways.Stay dry and happy shopping!
