Thunder Struck

Stormy weather style

We’ve all had those days. You’re pumped to debut your newest wardrobe acquisition when all of the sudden the sky begins to sprinkle. Fret not – the latest raincoat design is here to save the day! No longer a utilitarian smock, these clear coats will do any outfit justice. They’ve made plenty of appearances on the runway staking their claim as a go-to jacket that’s not just for rainy days. If you’re ready to rock the transparent trend while the sun shines, there are plenty of styles to choose from: trench or cropped jacket, simply clear or accented with colored piping, oversized pockets or even a slightly-tinted hue. Layer a textured vest in velvet or faux fur for a little extra impact and you’re ready to face any day, rain or shine.
