These stylish waterproof coats will help you show the weather who’s boss

Posted by for Fashion

The weather outside is frightful… but your wardrobe doesn’t need to be. We’ve rounded up the most stylish raincoats to see you through this wet weather and beyond. 

All memory of warm weather is over, the leaves have well and truly taken on their autumnal shades and the weather forecast is well, bleak. This is your official cue to buy a new raincoat, should you need to.

Gone are the days when water-resistant meant coats and jackets that were all function and no form. Designers have been embracing fashionable takes on practicality of late, meaning we are no longer resigned to raincoats as dire as the current weather situation. 

Whatever your style there is an option to suit, from oversized raincoats with big lapels and belted waists, to translucent or rubberised macs and chic, hooded trench coats.

The continuation of this trend on the spring/summer 2021 catwalks - from Prada’s monochrome hooded jackets to Dior’s printed anoraks - showed us raincoats will be around until next summer at least. So, tackle this week (and surely many more to come) with our roundup of the most stylish outerwear pieces to combat this rain. It’s time to show the weather, who’s really boss. 

  • Arket parka

    Arket’s hooded parka is a modern classic; released in different shades each season and always sure to sell out. No need to be nervous to invest in pastels either; they are a major autumn trend and look great worn with dark brown, burgundy and black.

  • Sezane hooded raincoat

    High shine is having a big moment this season, and this 60s-inspired Sezane jacket ticks that trend right off and, as a bonus, keeps you dry in doing so. For ultimate style points try this with cream denim and a black low-heeled ankle boot.

  • Hunter hooded anorak

    Bright sportswear was a major trend on the spring/summer 2021 catwalks and one of the key pieces was a anorak. We saw camo print at Dior and monochrome at Prada but we also love this canary yellow style from Hunter as a perfect year-round jacket.
