You’ll need a rain mac this St Patrick’s weekend: shop the best here

You’ll need a rain mac this St Patrick’s weekend: shop the best here

St Patrick’s weekend is expected to bring more wintery weather which has, inevitably, upturned all of our pre-planned ensembles. Gone are the days when St Patrick’s weekend would revolve around 99ers in the sun and burnt noses – weren’t those the days? This weekend we can expect “cold and breezy conditions with a significant wind chill due to fresh and gusty easterly winds, with maximum temperatures of 3 to 6 degrees”.

In preperation for the incoming rain and snow event (which is not be not as bad as Storm Emma, FYI), we’re alerting you early enough so that you can adjust your wardrobe plans accordingly. A slick water-repellent raincoat or mac will be ideal for wet and gusty conditions. Plus, you can still wear your favourite outfit underneath and relax knowing you’ll make it to the party dry and warm (hopefully). Historically, raincoats aren’t received as the chicest way to cover up but given the inevitability of the situation, its time to change our attitudes and jump on the raincoat bandwagon. Afterall it was the late Hubert De Givenchy who was quoted saying “all a woman needs to be chic is a raincoat, two suits, a pair of trousers and a cashmere sweater”. Shop 10 of our favourite weather-proof macs below.
