Unfortunately for us in the UK, Summer doesn’t always mean guaranteed sun. Whether you’re heading to a festival, the beach, shopping in the city or just running errands, it’s wise to always have a shower-proof jacket to hand, just in case the heavens open – because you can guarantee, if you don’t, they will! Here are five of the smartest and most stylish shower-proof jackets around:
1 – The Right As Rain Jacket by Joules
This jacket is lined with soft jersey making it a snugly joy to wear. It’s also got some serious waterproofing going on, but without that shiny look that you often get with shower-proof jackets. The sunny yellow is ideal for Summer, but it’s also available in navy blue and pink too.
2 – The Barbour Brae Waterproof Parka
Barbour is a tried and trusted brand when it comes to keeping you warm and dry, and this lightweight parka is perfect for warmer weather showers. The drawstring hood and elasticated cuffs are great for keeping out those seafront breezes too! Lovely in bright sky blue.
3 – The Curve Waterproof Jacket by Rains
When you want something a little smarter than your average raincoat, this gorgeous waterproof trench ticks all the boxes. It’s light, waterproof and comes with a hood for maximum weather protection, but the belted trench style makes it smart enough to wear while shopping or even out for dinner or drinks.
4 – The Waterproof Bomber by Isabel Marant
The bomber jacket is still the undisputed jacket style of the season, so why not give your wet weather look a fashion upgrade with this bang on trend black waterproof bomber-style jacket? The removable fur collar means that this jacket will work just as well going into autumn/winter as it does for those Summer showers.
5 – The Tigi Shower Resistant Coat
You’re bound to turn heads in this aqua number with super cute printed butterfly pattern lining. The high collar is great for keeping out the breeze and the princess seam pockets add extra style.
