After a very wet July, it’s time to start thinking about outerwear that will work when the weather goes from warm and sunny to cold and rainy in the blink of an eye
If you took up running or some other outdoor activity during the spring/summer months, you’re going to need a good jacket that will protect you from the elements that might otherwise put you off leaving the house! This one has everything you need.
This raincoat, which comes in a variety of colours, is designed to keep you dry without compromising on style or functionality. Add a cute bucket hat and a pair of boots for the ultimate ‘rainy-day’ look.
This long line raincoat features contrast striped lining and is a stylish staple to wear over your everyday basics. The drawstring pulls you in at the waist and it has a hood for added protection from sudden showers.
When the day is fine but you don’t trust the sky to stay clear, this is a great option. A light parka, perfect for layering, will provide enough coverage without adding bulk or causing you to overheat.
Not quite ready to embrace the longer lengths and hooded styles yet? This cool and chic option from Very works perfectly as an added layer to a casual outfit.
A houndstooth peacoat will make even the most casual jeans and a T-shirt combo look seriously classy. This double-breasted version has side pockets and will keep you warm and toasty as the temperatures drop.
For something warm but lightweight that will also keep you dry in the heaviest downpour, you won’t go wrong with this waterproof and windproof parka from Marks & Spencer. The adjustable hood and pockets add extra snugness and you can adjust the cuffs and waist for the best fit.
If you’re looking for an extra layer of warmth but don’t like the idea of wearing a big coat, this reversible gilet is ideal. With decent pockets, a sizeable hood and the option to switch sides, depending on how hot or cold you are, this piece will serve you well all year round.
