15 of the Best Raincoats so You'll Still Look Stylish When it's Pouring

August 16, 2020

It's been a wild week for bad weather between Hurricanes Hanna and Isaias, with storms, torrential downpours, and high winds. Hope everyone is safe out there! If you realized that you're in need of a new raincoat or jacket a little too late, we rounded up a bunch that'll repel water, will keep you and your phone dry, and have drawstring details and secure closures for extra protection from the elements.


But just because it's a functional piece in your wardrobe doesn't mean it can't have some pizazz to it. There are also PVC and see-through styles, long and cropped silhouettes, and lots of other design options so you can pick what speaks to you, and know that you'll have a durable barrier between you and the next rainy day. Here, 15 cute and useful raincoats and jackets to wear throughout the rest of summer—and even into fall and winter.


BEST PACKABLE RAINCOAT

Zeta SL Rain Jacket

Weather can be fickle, so if it's pouring one minute and completely sunny the next, you want a lightweight jacket that easily stows away in your bag. This packable two-toned one will do just that; plus, you'll stay so dry thanks to the hood, adjustable cuffs, and waterproof GORE-TEX fabric. 


BEST SPORTY RAINCOAT

Women's Running Jacket

A waterproof jacket you can wear while working out or just while your out and about will get double the use. This Nike style has an adjustable hood and sleeves to keep water out, but it's lightweight enough so you don't break a sweat. 


BEST CLASSIC RAINCOAT

Jacket

If you're like me and have always wanted a bright yellow style, opt for one from Rains. It has a casual silhouette with handy pockets and a high neck in case it's really coming down hard. 


BEST BLACK RAINCOAT

Stockholm Raincoat

Stutterheim is known for its sleek rain gear, like this long black raincoat with silver hardware; plus, the pockets are double-welded so nothing will get your valuables wet.
