Rain, Rain, Here to Stay

If nothing else, the rotten weather this spring has given the jacket aficionados among us (of which I am one) a chance to trot out all the raincoats and trenches in our wardrobes...in this case, many times over. Usually I complain that I only have a few precious weeks in which to show off the Marni-esque beige textured trench I got at Dovetail for just $60 last year, or the green raincoat I scored at a clothing swap. Not this year! I've been able to wear both to my heart's content. Let's look at some nice raincoat and trench options, shall we? Because you may still need one.

Many opt for the classic beige, which can be a little boring. Pleats in the back (left) add some kick (Gryphon trench, $425 at Shopbop.com).


Designer Robert Rodriguez offers a drapey, kimono-like take on the classic look ($495 at Nordstrom).


A tulip print
emphasizes the silver lining behind so many clouds ($180 at Topshop.com).


A swingy version offers a different silhouette ($107.58 at Asos.com).
