Nobody likes getting stuck in the rain. NOBODY. And what’s easier than having to carry around an umbrella in the off chance it may actually rain? Wearing a raincoat instead, and the good news is you don’t have to look like you stepped off the set of Deadliest Catch if you don’t want to. Here are 5 stylish raincoats you’ll want to wear every day:
1. White Rainmac from Topshop
This raincoat is a modern take on the classic rain slicker, and being made of 100% polyurethane, is totally waterproof. The white is light and clean, and the navy and white striped lining adds a stylish touch. The cut makes it super wearable; try it with jeans, activewear, or even a dress.

2. Leonie Raincoat by Gertrude & Gaston
This 100% PVC raincoat by French label Gertrude & Gaston is the perfect piece of outerwear to pair with activewear. Vintage-inspired, this raincoat features clean lines and a soft matte finish, making it totally street appropriate. Pop it on while you’re walking the dog or heading to the gym, or wear it to work with trousers and a smart blouse. Bonus: the hood features a reflective peak.

3. ASOS Longline Rainmac
While you wouldn’t necessarily want to wear this coat out in the pouring rain, it’s definitely showerproof. The longline cut, functional pockets and drawstring waist scream style, but it’s also really practical as well. Another bonus is the hood, which can be conveniently zipped away into the collar, and the ice blue color is super unique.

In stark contrast to the baby blue of the previous coat, this bad boy by BDG is basically the perfect shade of pink. Made from a glossy PVC, this jacket is not only waterproof, but super cute to boot. It features a cosy fleece-lined hood and button cuffs. The pockets also snap closed so you can keep your phone and other gadgets out of the rain. Take some inspo from the model and pair it with a pair of black demin and some sneakers and your look is instantly cool.
BUY – $89
We couldn’t compile a list without including a take on the classic trench. This option from Zara is not only super sleek and elegant, but is water repellent as well. Trench coats are so versatile and can be worn with anything and everything from a smart wear-to-work look to jeans and sneakers. Honestly, you can’t go wrong.
