Anoraks, raincoats, waterproofs, whatever you want to call them, the coat-cum-jacket your mum and dad made you wear on rainy holidays to Wales is back this season.
Blame or thank Balenciaga, who put geeky 80s-inspired versions on the catwalk. Wear pulled back over your shoulders with a polo neck underneath to look truly ‘fashion’. Add a grungy twist and wear with a slip dress and utility boots, or juxatpose the anorak’s geezer, utilitarian appeal with an oversized shirt.
Alternatively, stick to the classics – a classic yellow raincoat will cheer you up regardless of the weather. Look to Petit Bateau and Lacoste for our favourite versions. Or invest in a waterproof parka at Barbour, which will see you through every festival and winter forevermore.
