Women's raincoats

Are raincoats in style?

When you think of fashion, a women's raincoat probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind. There are plenty of stylish options that won't have you looking like a school bus or a fisherman, though. Some will even keep you warm in the winter, while others are made for spring showers.

For the ultimate in wet weather chic, try a water-repellant trench coat. You'll look poised and put-together, and the belt will cinch your waist for a slimming effect. Add some rubber ankle-high booties and you'll be ready for anything, whether it's a job interview or lunch with the girls.

Give your look an edgy twist by wearing an oversize trench coat on top of a motorcycle jacket. Pull the leather collar over the trench for a striking contrast. Don't button things up, either – let your open trench billow in the wind.

Throw a sophisticated rain poncho over your cute cotton sweaters.

When the skies are grey, brighten things up with colorful raingear. A shiny blue raincoat will put a smile on your face, and the large front pockets keep your phone safe from splashes. If you want to make a statement, try a hooded leopard-print version with princess seams for shaping.

Try a transparent rain jacket that shows off your outfit for an on-trend look. Of course, you'll have to wear something amazing underneath, but it's a great excuse for showing off a favorite dress or beautiful new top. If it's not too wet outside, you can also drape your coat over your shoulders, like a cape.

Don't underestimate the power of cool accessories, either. A nice bag or a bright scarf can make your raincoat into a style statement. You can also slip a pair of plastic shoe protectors over your new sneakers or wedge sandals to guard them from puddles.

If you want a fashion staple you'll love for years to come, try a mac rain jacket. Created in the 19th century, it has stayed popular ever since, thanks to clean lines and a simple cut. Try it with your favorite black leggings; macs are also versatile, and can be worn on dry days, too.

Finally, avoid frizzy hair by using a leave-in conditioner to fight humidity and carrying an umbrella. Unlike a tight beanie, it won't mess up your locks and leave you with a bad case of hat head. To keep your makeup in place, spritz your face with setting spray before leaving the house.
