Well folks, it’s offical. Summer is over and the wild wild wet is well and truly here. If you’ve rocked up at the office completely drenched or had your weekend outfit ruined then you’re in desperate need of one thing – a rain jacket.

This item of clothing probably conjures terrifying images of school excursions or little Georgie from It – neither of which are particularly inspiring. While it seems impossible to look chic in wet weather, we promise there’s raincoats out there that’ll keep you dry and have you look good doing it. We have everything from poncho-style jackets to puffy ones, long ones and short ones – you get the gist.

Even people who swore they’d never own a raincoat will likely be persuaded by this fabulous lineup. It’s time to throw one on, strap on your wellie boots and go splash around in the puddles like the big grown-up you are. Go on, we know you want to.
