Does the thought of the rainy season conjure charming images of sipping on your favorite beverage while curling up in a cozy blanket? If so, then you are surely a pluviophile – one who loves the rain.
And why not? The raindrops instantly set a joyful mood and you fantasize about getting drenched. When not in the mood to get wet, you can slay that perfect monsoon look with rain jackets for women. But if the thought of raincoats evokes memories of old-school styles, then think again.
With 2023 ringing the bells, raincoats aren’t just functional anymore. Fashion designers are rethinking rainwear and a waterproof jacket no longer means boring. Today, there is a whole new breed of stylish pieces that can accentuate your look while being rain-resistant.
Contemporary rain jackets are designed with durability, longevity, and sustainability in mind. They have all the smart features you’d look for in rainwear – waterproof zippers, snap buttons, adjustable cords, and a comfortable fit. And all these come without compromising your fashion statement.
Looking for expert tips to style your rain jacket this monsoon? Here’s how to look your best even in your rain jacket.
Get the Right Rain Jacket
When buying a rain jacket, you might come across an astounding number of details. While water-proofing is the key aspect you should keep in mind, make sure the style isn’t hindering your overall aesthetic appeal. Pick one that accentuates your figure and renders a feminine look. There are rain jackets that are tapered around the waist and are typically knee-length, giving you a stylish look.
On the other hand, if you want to flaunt a streetwear style, go for longer jackets with a loose fit. These offer a spacious silhouette and you can seamlessly pair them with your regular jacket or dress, and long rain boots.
Pick Vibrant Hues
The beauty of rain is it washes away everything gloomy and brings a rainbow. Nature appears beautiful, fresh, and vibrant in its true colors. In an ode to the happiness that rains bring, pick rain jackets in vibrant shades. Wearing bright-colored raincoats with neutral-colored bottom wear will help you to exude the best style statement.
If the weather forecast confirms the temperature to dip, it is a good idea to layer up with your rainwear. A long-sleeved heavy top or a sweater can be worn underneath a long and loose raincoat to keep you warm and cozy as you enjoy the rain showers. To have the perfect look, pair it with your favorite denim and boots.
Choose Statement Pieces
Unexpected showers can leave you unguarded. But if you are really looking to amp up your style throughout the monsoon season, then pick some statement pieces. Go for bold designs or colors that will make you steal all the limelight. Get something designed as a trench coat. It will instantly make your outfit stand out. Pick ‘larger-than-life,’ ankle-length rain jackets that keep you fully covered.
The best thing is, you can pair these statement pieces with any attire you wish to adorn – from jeans to that pretty dress in your wardrobe.
Get Something Breathable
In your run for fashion, do not compromise your comfort. Shop for rain jackets that are made with extremely breathable materials and offer a comfortable fit. So, even if it rains unexpectedly during summer, you can conveniently wear your rain jacket and showcase your style statement. The more comfortable you are in your outfit, the more fashionable and comfortable you look.
Go Unique with a Myriad of Styles to Choose from
As we said, raincoats do not need to be boring. One of the best things about contemporary rain jackets is you have varied styles to choose from. Whether you want the classic rainwear style, hooded coat, cape style, A-line jacket, curve jacket, or a modern take on anorak jackets – there is a wide variety of options.
The Final Thoughts
Stylish and functional rain jackets for women are a must-have in your fashion wardrobe. They deliver what they are designed for – water resistance. But they also look exceptionally chic and can instantly accentuate your overall fashion statement. So, this monsoon, do not shy away from the rain. Slay it with your amazing style in cool and trendy rain jackets.
