It’s day 2 at London Fashion Week and everyone is wearing this waterproof jacket

Junior Beauty Editor Holly O’Neill here, reporting to you from day two of London Fashion Week!

After much deliberating over what I was going to wear for my first Fashion Week, (do you have a week’s worth of great outfits? No. Me either.) I can tell you that I needn’t have bothered.

It’s been bucketing down for the last 48 hours in London. Thankfully, I packed the most responsible and most-worn item in my wardrobe — my beloved, chocolate, crocodile-effect vinyl trench from River Island. Tonight, I will be raising a glass to Storm Dennis, without who, I wouldn’t have blended so seamlessly into the fashion crowd.

Who are all wearing waterproof trench coats. Truly, London is a sea of wipe-down trench coats.

The most common shades are earthy tones — deep green, toasty beige and rich browns, and frequently worn with a similar shade of polo neck or jumper underneath, and often worn with a pair of leather trousers — the effect is way less The Matrix than you’re picturing.

Scroll down to see the best shots of the street style set, wrapped up in waterproof trenches.
