The rain jackets that will keep you looking chic, even when it’s pouring

Storm Lorenzo is on its way, and it’s bringing with it a lot of rain. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with the perfect rain jacket edit


It’s not easy choosing what to wear when it’s raining cats and dogs outside, as a perfect outfit is quickly replaced with what’s practical.

I don’t know about you, but since the days of my mother shouting ‘where’s your coat!?’ at me as I ran out the front door, I’ve been avoiding dressing appropriately for the weather. How many times have you worn a light coat or jacket because it complimented your outfit, and thought you’d be grand as long as you had an umbrella?

Unfortunately, Irish weather is generally not ideal for umbrellas. A puff of wind and they’ve turned inside out and your hair is drenched. So, how to choose something that keeps you dry, has a hood but doesn’t look like you’re off to walk the dog?

Although we have agreed here at IMAGE that Paddington Bear is, in fact, a style icon, you may not want to wear a bright yellow coat and welly boots. I bought myself a yellow Rains jacket a few years ago and although I do love it, it isn’t the easiest to style.

A classic, simple raincoat in black or a neutral shade is ideal for throwing over work-wear. Alternatively, go printed and make a statement with yours like some of the ones below from Rains or Ganni. Just make sure you choose something you definitely like the cut and style of — it needs to be both functional and fashionable as chances are, you’ll be wearing it a lot.
