There’s nothing quite like getting caught in the elements to help you realize that you really NEED something.
Last week I got absolutely drenched by a surprise shower. My hooded jacket is not waterproof, so it seemed wise to wear a waterproof trench coat. Note that this “seemed” wise because the trench really didn’t help a whole lot during a torrential downpour on the one day I opted out of carrying an umbrella.
Never again. An umbrella would have been great, but a hooded raincoat would have saved the day.
If seems like floral raincoats might be a thing this spring, and why not? They’re practical and pretty.
Here are the four favorites I’m most admiring.
This Lands’ End Coastal Rain Parka in a gorgeous blue and ivory gardenia print gets the most points for a great look at a fabulous price. The removable hood also adds to its versatility as a spring jacket. It’s $109 in Regular or Petite sizes and $119 in Plus.
And, it’s 30% off through tomorrow during the Lands’ End Friends & Family Sale – bringing the price for either style under $100. Use code: PAL302 and pin: 7000.
This raincoat got a nod last year in a post about a packable down jacket in th same pretty floral print. The raincoat is still available from 6pm – but now it’s 60% off!
The Sam Edelman Floral Print Hooded Anorak is $72.99 (regularly $180).
If you’re going to splurge on a raincoat, a British brand is a logical choice. They do know rain!
This Joules Raina Print Rain Jacket is a lovely combination of military-inspired styling with a beautiful floral print. It’s $186.36 (regularly $227.95) from Backcountry in Navy Floral or Slate Floral.
3/2/16 Sale Update – The Joules Raina Rain Jacket was marked down again today and is now $148.17.
Finally, I’m not familiar with this brand, but this cute and affordable raincoat is certainly worth checking out!
The Gabriella Rocha Floral Print Rain Coat is $39.99 (regularly $98) from 6pm in Black Floral or White Floral.
