This post is inspired by two things: 1. the fact that it has been pissing rain for two days straight, and 2. my charming and beautiful friend Ceridwen, who braved the downpours to have dinner with me last night (and who gave me the idea for this post, so I suppose that’s three things). These are all on the longer side because the last time I did a post on rain jackets, a number of you complained they were too short to be of much help when it’s really wet out. Let’s start with the splurgiest first, because of course it’s the one I can’t get out of my head: I’m not typically a fan of peplum, but here it really works for me, probably because it doesn’t poof out, the way peplum usually does, but instead just sort of hangs there like a cool extra layer.
A few things I like on this option: the fishtail hem, the stand collar, and the excellent neutral-enough-to-go-with-a-lot color.
Super-lightweight and highly packable.
Nothing quite like a classic yellow slicker, and this one from Petit Bateau has the added extra bonus of a super-cute striped lining.
So cute and shiny, and at an unbeatable price.
