The British weather is not known for being reliable: one minute we’ve got snow warnings, the next flooding. And of course, it’s all guaranteed to change happen when you’re about to run out the door - sod’s law eh?
Rather than holding your cardigan above your head as you sprint to Greggs on your lunch break, invest in a snazzy raincoat that’s waterproof, windproof and just as stylish as your big winter coat.
All In White
Blocked Raincoat In White, ASOS, £50
The easiest way to wear an all white ensemble is with a raincoat. Easy to wipe-clean, even the messiest of people can pull this off. With an adjustable hood and roomy pockets in a true-to-size fit, it’s fashionable and functional.
Lightweight Raincoat, Zara, £19.99 (was £69.99)
With elasticated cuffs and a drawstring toggle waist, you can wear this as oversized or as fitted as you like. The mustard colour means you’ll never have to hunt through a rail of black coats to find it. Although you can’t see the hood it is there, cleverly concealed in a high neck zip collar.

Walk On The Wild Side
Leopard Print Mac, Topshop, £69
Earn some serious style points with this animal print option. Machine washable (wipe-clean if you’re particularly lazy) and in a midi-length, this will brighten up any rainy day.
Rubber Jacket, Next, £52
Go old school with a classic parka style rubberised raincoat. Great for downpours and windy weather, you’ll stay warm and dry in this longline coat. And if the rain is really dire, wear with a pair of colourful wellies.
Make A Statement
Drawstring Hood Raincoat, Pull & Bear, £29.99
Look minty fresh while feeling dry with this colourful number. Subtle? Us? No chance. The button fastening allows for a speedy change if you get caught in a rain shower and the front pockets are large enough to fit even the biggest smartphone.
