Rainy season is here! As a Portlander, I pride myself on wearing very little rain gear but I recently realized, I should probably own a raincoat, especially for fall bike rides. I’ve been scouring the internet for cute but practical water-proof coats. Here’s what I found:
Army Green Parka 1 of 15This oversized green parka is great for layering!
850 SEK at Grandpa.
Navy Jacket 2 of 15The big white buttons on this navy parka give it a sense of playfulness! Super cute.
1600 SEK at Grandpa.
Ilse Jacobsen Raincoat 3 of 15Danish designer, Ilse Jacobsen, knows all about looking chic in the rain. She's famous for her gorgeous wellie designs, but I think this long navy rain coat is pretty spectacular too.
â‚¬129.00 at Jet's.
Pea Coat 4 of 15A rain coat designed like a pea coat! You can't get more classic and wearable than that. This design has a fantastic price point too.
$50 at Gap.
Barbour Liberty Collaboration 5 of 15British retailer, Barbour, is known for their practical, classic waxed cotton coats. This one is lined with Liberty of London fabric so you can bring the garden with you all fall and winter!
$400 at J.Crew.
White Cotton Raincoat 6 of 15This lovely, long coat is practical but still feminine and chic.
$208 at Plumo.
Color-Blocked Coat 7 of 15This is such an effortlessly beautiful take on the rain coat! I love the sculptural design.

Yellow Ponch 8 of 15This easy, yellow poncho makes a fun and fabulous statement, even in the rain!

APC Coat 9 of 15This coat is so beautifully understated and chic! Not surprising, since it's made by a French company.

Mod Parka 10 of 15If a pared down look is your thing, you can't go wrong with this mod parka and a pair of skinny jeans.
$403 at Frances May.
Waxed Cotton Jacket 11 of 15This jacket is designed in Portland so when they say it's waterproof, I actually believe them. The sweet red lining adds some color to drab and stormy days.
$230 at Bridge & Burn.
Swedish Raincoat 12 of 15This Swedish raincoat is gorgeous and looks so sturdy. It's nice and long too!
$488 at Far Fetch.
Yellow Rain Coat 13 of 15You can't go wrong with a classic yellow raincoat! It's fun, colorful and youthful!

Flannel-Lined Coat 14 of 15This cobalt coat is great for snow too, since it's lined with flannel. You'll be toasty warm!
$185 at Madewell.
Preppy Green Coat 15 of 15This kelly green coat brings me right back to my childhood, wearing L.L. bean parkas and riding around cold New England villages in a Volvo. It's a vintage Woolrich piece in great condition! It'd be a fun preppy look for any rainy day.
$55 at Etiquette Shop.
