Dressing for the rain is never fun. Not only are you tasked with finding clothes that will keep you dry. You have to attempt somehow to make your outfit showcase your fashion sensibility. Not an easy feat.
Function and fashion is a combination that I always struggle to execute well. Functional wardrobe pieces are sometimes designed for technicality with the style factor omitted, which makes it had to find rainwear that will compliment your style.
Luckily there are styles out there that work with both these end goals in mind. One of the essential clothing items that you need to keep you dry is a waterproof jacket, and what better jacket is there to protect you from the rain then a technical raincoat.
This season the water-resistant jacket should be the top of your priority as the weather starts to become unpredictable.
Here are some of my favourite waterproof jackets for men.
Zara’s new season of rainproof clothing has the right balance of design and technicality. Their series of anoraks boast statement prints to help playfully tackle the downpour with style.
For a more subtle approach, opt for a monochromatic style.
No one does rainwear clothing quite as good as RAINS. The clue is in their name. The short hooded coat is made from waterproof matte PU and features the signature RAINS built-in cap. Other details include armhole ventilation and large utilitarian pockets.
If you are going to do battle with the elements you may need help from Uniqlo’s BLOCKTECH which features a water-repellent coating to protect you from rain and moisture. The parka comes in an array of colour palettes.
With the help of thermo-seamed seams, you can say goodbye to rain getting into your undergarments. The waterproof parka jacket from Mango comes in a dark navy and features a contrast lined hood, and multiple zipped pockets.
If a longer silhouette is more to your style, then a trench coat is for you. Available in three iconic colours, khaki, honey and navy, the jacket is made from a waterproof fabric and features a removable hood.
Not all rain is the same, and for light showers, you need a lightweight jacket with showerproof qualities. Olive clothing have you covered with a one size parka in a mocha colourway.
