A little rain is inevitable, but don’t let those showers ruin hikes and festivals this summer with these light raincoats and accessories Aoibhin Garrihy

Aoibhin Garrihy collection at Regatta 

Make this the year you finally stop being caught unawares by unseasonal downpours with these light raincoats. There is no such thing as bad weather, as the saying goes, just bad clothing. Keep an eye out for raincoats with taped seams or a waterproof, rather than water-resistant, finish to keep you as dry as possible. That way, not even rain clouds will stop you from embracing your post-lockdown freedom.

Think about how you want to use the jacket too. A bright jacket is a good choice for hikes so you can be easily spotted. For running errands and commuting in the rain, opt for chic subtle tones and a fitted silhouette.
