6 Stylish Solutions To Keep You Dry In Wet Weather
Spring, is that you? After months of winter weather, we're calling it: the rainy season is officially upon us. And while that used to mean digging out your old anorak and making do with a corner store umbrella, wet weather gear has recently had an upgrade. When it comes to rainy-day wear, the onus is on materials. You want breathable (preferably), waterproof (obviously) and stylish (ideally). So with that in mind, we’ve curated an edit of six pieces to keep you dry when the weather’s wet.
Danish brand Rains has revolutionised the waterproof jacket market since launching its first product – a contemporary reinterpretation of the classic rubber raincoat – and has gone on to create accessories to match its core offering. This roll-top backpack is made from the brand's signature fabric with a simple Scandinavian aesthetic that’s synonymous with all their pieces.
A timeless utilitarian design, a wearable khaki hue and technical water-repellant properties make this Moncler raincoat an impeccable choice. The functional details might make it suitable for being out in the field, but the flattering silhouette is city-appropriate. One to throw on over your workwear. Who knew a raincoat could look so pulled together?
Leave your umbrella at home and opt for a waterproof bucket hat instead. This royal blue hat from Norse Projects will be your wet weather saviour, keeping the rain off your face, your hair dry, and making every outfit look a little bit cooler while it’s at it.
A pair of wellington boots that don’t look too much like wellington boots will mean you can keep your feet dry, even in the city. Since 1824 Mackintosh has been one of the world’s most influential coat makers, designing outerwear products for everyone from the British Army to Céline, so it stands to reason that their wellington boots are going to be some of the best.
You can trust the northern Europeans when it comes to rainwear. After all, they get a lot of rain. Essentiel Antwerp’s pink raincoat will act as a shot of sunshine on grey days and keep you dry in the process. The loose fit and side slits give it a playful edge.
UGG is very much having a moment, with the great and good of the fashion world stepping out in their sheepskin slip-ons with Cali-inspired braided detailing. But it’s not just the slip-ons that are garnering attention – these yellow rain boots are guaranteed to turn heads. The ankle-length silhouette, chunky rubber sole and signature sheepskin lining make these so much more than an average welly boot.
