Here, find Fashion Fabrics Club’s roundup of chic spring raincoats (and the fabrics that make them possible) to keep you dry—and stylish—in the soggy weeks ahead.
Essential for city living, the anorak is that go-to toss-on for every errand run, dog walk, and sloshy commute—super functional and at the same time incredibly chic. If you want something you can wear year after year, opt for a black nylon with water-resistant backing to keep things timeless and sophisticated.
The High-Gloss Jacket
In a rainstorm, everything becomes a reflective surface; roads, sidewalks, shop windows…embrace the sheen with a high-polish patent leather-looking polyester. Its downtown edginess adds a cool fierceness to your look.
The Classic Yellow Coat
When exploring nature, it’s a good policy to wear bright colors that stand out (especially during hunting season) and a lemon yellow nylon raincoat is just the ticket. This eye-catching coat has become a must-have in the closets of style mavens from major to cities to the most remote rural areas—making it the perfect traveling partner, no matter where your plans take you.
The Trench Coat
While classic tan first comes to mind when discussing the trench coat, you can easily give this timeless style a little update by using an understated color (to keep things elegant) like slate blue ripstop nylon, and adding feminine embellishments like metallic buttons or capped sleeves.
