Rainwear to Update Your Winter Fashion Wardrobe


It goes without saying that rainwear is a winter fashion essential. While it’s tempting to stick to simple winter knits and keep away from the cold and drizzle entirely, there will be days when braving the elements is necessary. You might have the hang of layering for warmth, but rainy weather is notoriously difficult to dress for. But that doesn’t meant you must choose between style and practicality.

There are a few guiding tips when it comes to shopping for this winter fashion staple. Consider how much coverage you’ll need. Maybe a pea coat style is enough for you, or perhaps an ankle-skimming hemline is what you need. Nobody wants to invite a bad hair day, so opting for a hood is always a wise idea. From the minimal to the flamboyant, there are plenty of rainwear options to update your winter fashion wardrobe.

Make a Splash

When skies are endlessly grey, making a winter fashion statement can brighten your day completly. Statement rainwear isn’t just about being loud. Animal prints, metallics, colour clashing and even transparent elements can elevate your entire outfit. You’ll be praying for rain when the weather starts fining up.

Simple Style

If rainwear really isn’t your area for statement-making self-expression, you’re in luck. The majority of raincoats available are super sleek, simple and come in a range of versatile and classic colours. Opting for a camel colour will have you feeling more like you’re wearing a stylish trench coat than protective outerwear.  Black, olive and navy are safe choices too. Even clear raincoats feel simple and neat while also allowing for playful styling to shine through underneath.

Vinyl Revival

While the ultra-cool vinyl trench silhouette doesn’t usually feature a hood, the rising popularity of this design means that more and more alternate cuts are on the market. Whether you go for coloured, printed or matrix-style black finishes, the vinyl trench is a chic winter fashion saviour that remains appropriate all year long.
