This Trending Outerwear Is The Secret To Make It Rain Prints And Colours

Take a rain check on your trench coats for now.

Who would have thought the quirky, printed raincoats we donned as children would make a comeback? The street style crowd at the Fall/Winter ’19 shows saw more than a few fun and playful renditions of the functional outerwear stepping out, and we can’t say we’re not loving the look.

First making an impression on the Spring/Summer ’19 runways of Kate Spade in feminine florals, then Fendi’s in transparent vinyls with generous pockets tacked on, and more recently in the 4 Moncler Simone Rocha collection with a garden chic theme, the raincoat trend is picking up on and off the runways. After all, it’s hard to resist a great case of function meets fashion.

For a fresh approach, we say play up the PVC factor and opt for more translucent pieces — be it in bold prints or colours to match — and take it to the next level by pairing something peep-worthy underneath too. Browse for inspo below and shop up top.
