Spring is that time of year when you just never know for sure what the weather will be like. We had a lovely warm, sunny weekend, but today brought rain showers, hail and a dreary overcast sky.
So – I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about raincoats/trench coats. Ever since I was growing up in the rain in England, and seeing my parents wear their Burberry raincoats (or mac’s as we call them), there has always been a certain nostalgia for me in wearing a great raincoat.
The great thing about a raincoat/trench coat is that it can be dressed up (like in this post where I am wearing heels and a skirt), or dressed down with adults pants or jeans.
For me, a raincoat has always been a classy addition to my wardrobe. The great things that as the weather becomes warmer and more unpredictable in the spring, they are not too heavy to wear.
I have seen a wide variety of colors and fabrics, I love this Burberry one, but I also have a black and white pinstripe one that I use when I am wearing darker colors.
Some of my favorite styles that I have seen for sale recently are made by: GUESS, Calvin Klein and ASOS.com.
