Usually one to opt for a stylish woollen coat and a sturdy umbrella for the winter, living in Wellington has provided me with a challenge.
Being the windy city the rain comes at you horizontally and you are often left battling with your umbrella only for it to be blown inside out or out of your hands altogether. (Cue a little laughter)!
So, I am on a mission to find a raincoat that is both stylish and practical.
I immediately think of the ultimate classic, Burberry!
Yes, this beauty does solve the stylish and practical problem and is a quick win if your budget extends that far. For me …I am going to have to put it on the savings list for next year.
Off I go and do a little research and I have come up with the following options.
Nothing beats a good quality trench coat or the casual cool of the parka. Barbour are an excellent and reliable brand, you get your money’s worth. ASOS has great and affordable variety.
Loving these coats with their pop of red to brighten a dull winters day. (I think I may have found a favourite).
A little obsessed with capes this season, I love the Raincape by Moochi. Hmmmm….now I just need to decide.
