As summer comes to a close, it's time to finally pull out our favorite fall jackets. While I'm partial to a good denim jacket, I can't deny the necessity of a good rain jacket in the fall and winter. While this piece of outerwear isn't considered a staple item in everyone's wardrobe, it should be—if nothing else, because nobody wants to ruin a great outfit due to a post-work downpour. And when we say rain jackets, we're not talking about your dad's old anorak: Today's rain jackets are cool, lightweight, and sleek enough that you'll actually be looking forward to wet weather. To prove it, I found 22 of the coolest raincoats on the market. From classic black and yellow versions to some pretty out-there options, this list has it all. (Psst: Don't forget about your rain boots!)
