Unfortunately, the UK summers do tend to be quite unpredictable. As we’ve seen recently the weather can go from pure sunshine to sudden dramatic downpours. Not knowing whether we should be packing sun cream or an umbrella into our handbag is a daily dilemma. However, luckily for you we’ve narrowed down our Top 5 current favourite raincoats to ensure you never get caught out.
1- Joules Shoreside Coastal Waterproof Coat
Getting caught in the rain has never looked so good with the Joules Coastal Waterproof Coat (£89.95). We love the flattering shape of this coat, and the nautical appeal from the striped lining, colour and hood toggles. The coat features two great big pockets (we love) making quick trips out handbag free. Not only is this a gorgeous statement coat but it will also become a absolute go-to in your outerwear collection.
2- Dorothy Perkins Light Blue Raincoat
The Dorothy Perkins light blue raincoat (£39.99) is perfect for those sudden downpours. Not only does this raincoat look flattering and stylish (have you seen the colour?) but it’s also great to chuck into the car ready for your next adventure. We’d just perhaps not recommend wearing this one in any heavily muddy places because things could get messy! Be sure to check out the selection of raincoats that Dorothy Perkins has to offer, there are some real gems!
3- Damart Pac a Mac
Owning a handy pac a mac is the ideal rain coat to have on-the-go. We love the look of the Damart Pac a Mac in Bordeaux Flower (from £29.00). Not only is the pattern gorgeous but it comes with it’s own little storage bag and packs away small making it easy to carry around in your bag. This is a great option for someone always on the go!
4- Coast Short Raincoat
For a raincoat that can take you through summer into autumn we recommend the Coast Short Raincoat (£69.00). Available in a variety of colours you’ll find one that suits you perfectly. The raincoat has an adjustable hood and deep hand pockets to ensure all your personal belongings stay nice and dry.
5- M&S Collection Rubber Funnel Neck Raincoat
For warmth on those drizzly days ahead we recommend the gorgeous Rubber Funnel Neck Raincoat (£69.00) from the M&S Collection. This stunning raincoat comes in two colours and is made to last. Featuring internal quilted padding and a funnel neck, you’ll feel all cosy even on the dampest days. The regular fit of the raincoat allows room for layering, making it an ideal outerwear staple to take with you into the colder months.
We hope that our recommendations have helped you find the raincoat that makes drizzly days a little bit easier!
