The Best Raincoats for Women

London Fog and Burberry may have the market cornered, but they’re not the only brands who stock chic slickers.

Topshop

Not all fashion brands consistently carry a broad selection of macs, but Topshop never fails to have plenty of options available. Unexpected colors and design details like contrast lining set this trend-focused retail chain’s offerings apart from the more expected.

To buy: Hooded rain mac; $95; topshop.com.

Lands’ End

Leave it to a retailer with a heritage in outdoor outfitting to turn out an abundance of raincoats in all colors and silhouettes. Whether you’re looking for basic black or something that makes a little bit more of a statement, you’ll find it here. (And like nearly every other item they sell, almost all of Lands’ End’s slickers are available in regular, petite, tall, and plus sizes).

To buy: Women’s coastal rain coat; $139; landsend.com.

Stutterheim

If rain gear could be elevated to an actual art form, Stutterheim would be it. Inspired by Sweden’s gloomy weather (and Swedish artists like Ingmar Bergman), their jackets are handmade with high-end materials like rubberized cotton, and often designed in collaboration with contemporary artists and influencers, making them well worth the investment.

To buy: Stutterheim x Vibskov Colorblock 1; $375; stutterheim.com.

Joules

Based in Britain (where it rains more than 100 days out of the year), Joules recognized the need for outerwear that’s as stylish as it is functional. The company carries raincoats in a broad array of colors and prints with no detail left untouched—from waterproof taped seams to cozy linings. The fact that they also have wellies to match is just an added bonus.

To buy: Golightly waterproof packaway parka; $80; joules.com.

Hunter

They already make the world’s most beloved rain boots, so it makes sense that Hunter's updated collection of outerwear was just as well-received. The company paid special attention to fit and design details (like a flattering drawstring waist and contrasting inside print) so their pieces add to your outfit—instead of just covering it up.

To buy: Original Utility Jacket, $425; hunterboots.com.
