Whoever thinks that rain jackets are reserved for spring 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, 14 rain jackets (that don't resemble shiny trash bags) you'll want to wear even when it's not wet and muggy outside.
The North Face, $56
A color blocked pullover like this North Face does wonders with its built-in pouch to keep your phone and wallet from getting soaked.
With its leopard print underneath a clear vinyl protectant, this trench coat is a statement piece you'll want to wear rain or shine.
This hooded fishtail jacket is an easy, lightweight option that you can throw on with jeans or a pair of leggings. Start memorizing your credit card number because it's currently on sale for 20 percent off with the code “SPARKLER."
Eileen Fisher, $209
A minimal, a-line, hooded utility jacket that’s roomy enough for layering your non-waterproof jacket and a tote underneath. Efficient.
Rain coat, but make it cropped. This is an ideal transitional layer that will still look on-trend even when it’s not gross outside.
Tory Sport, $498
Sure it’s a little pricey, but 1) it’s Tory Sport and 2) it’s reversible, so you’re really getting two jackets in one.
Avec Les Filles, $89
Take your patent leather booties and match them with your new French-inspired patent leather raincoat that has a detachable hood and a zip front with a concealed snap closure.
L’etoile Sport, $225
Hello, yes, I need this neon anorak that has a matching tank and tennis skirt. Wimbledon, where you at?
Calvin Klein, $91
This Calvin Klein anorak is every girl’s dream: endless pockets with sleek zippers to stash lipstick and cash in. Major Sandra Bullock in Ocean’s 8 vibes.
Finally: A streamlined waterproof utility jacket that’s as versatile as it is comfy. Minimalists, this was made for you.
If there were any hesitations about this raincoat's protective features, Herschel's parka is made to keep out the rain and wind with its special waterproof stretch fabric. It's easy on the eyes, too.
The OG all-weather brand still has a special place in our hearts. Go for a cape look with this unisex poncho if you're tired of the traditional, zipped-up style.
When it’s dark and gloomy outside, give yourself a pop of color with this fun, retro-inspired option. Plus, you still get to show off your outfit underneath. Can I get an amen?
