10 Chic Rain Jackets to Wear When It's Gross Outside

Read: non-hideous.

Design by Morgan McMullen

Whoever thinks that rain jackets are reserved for summer clearly hasn't spent a day in Florida; a sunshower can pop up any time of year. And who among us—no matter where you live—hasn't gotten stuck in a post-work downpour sans umbrella because it was nothin' but blue skies when you left your house that morning? But even when the weather's at torrential monsoon levels, you don't have to let it ruin your outfit. Ahead, 10 rain jackets (that don't resemble shiny trash bags) you'll want to wear even when it's not wet and muggy outside.

The ReNew Anorak

I took one glance at Everlane's anorak and suddenly I wish it's fall? Wear this ultra cool lightweight, water-resistant jacket on rainy days to the office without feeling like your colleagues are staring at you. (Unlike when you wear those high-top rain boots.)
