Six Of The Best Raincoats To Battle The UK Weather

Your wet weather wardrobe sorted.

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.

Wear with your new wellies or chunky trainers to keep you feet safe from puddles too. Shop our six favourite raincoats in the roundup below.

All In White


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.

Tailor-Made Fit


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.

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.
