A lovely reader helpfully pointed out that my Spring Outerwear choices didn’t include any options with a hood. So what do you do when those spring showers start and you’re pushing a buggy with one hand and holding a coffee in the other? (Or pushing a buggy with two hands, because your child is no longer feather-light and you’ve progressed to the heavier Maclaren) That’s when the spring raincoat becomes your best friend… How could I have forgotten it?! (Actually I know why, I no longer own a buggy! The day we said goodbye to the buggy after three children, was fairly momentous…)
Here are my favourites.
This lovely coat is waterproof and a really lovely shade of pink. If pink isn’t your colour it also comes in white. Pair with a white tee, blue jeans and your Stans in the spring for a fresh, functional yet stylish look.
This would be a great buy, although it is not waterproof. I really like the diagonal zip feature and the shade of green.
Waxed Hooded Raincoat – La Redoute *currently 30% off* – £69
Functional and yet still stylish, this coat would be great for dogwalkers and buggypushers. I love the contrast grey fabric hood. It comes in various colourways including a lovely shade of yellow, if you are not afraid of colour. Buy now with 30% off with the code BIG30
Pink Raincoat – £59 with 30% off
I love this raincoat (you know me and pink!) with it’s contrast grey hood…It’s from La Redoute and currently 30% off with the code BIG30. Pink is huge this season so if I was looking for a raincoat I would probably opt for something colourful like this.
Camo Hooded Parka – H&M – £24.99
This is definitely not going to keep you that dry, but I had to include it because I love it so much!
How cool is this? I love the pink edging and the fact that it’s see through. A funky take on a practical raincoat…
Petite Red Ivy Rain Mac – Topshop – £49
This mac is for the ‘Petites’ out there who like to wear colour… I love it!
Shark Print Lined Rain Mac – £60 from Topshop
This would be a sensible option for those who aren’t into colour. It would go with everything and has very cool shark print lining.
So there are my favourite picks for raincoats. I hope you’ve seen something you like.
Amazing, thank you! I’m spoiled for choice 👍🏻
Love the pink one. I’ve been inspired by your picture and just bought my first Hunter gumboots! So excited to have some “grown up ” gumboots for the upcoming Australian winter.
