Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but I didn’t think it existed. Either it’s too bulky, or it’s too thin. Perhaps it’s lacking a hood, or it has a really overwhelming hood. Maybe it’s not waterproof, or it’s so waterproof that you look like you’re ready for a trek through the rainforest when you wear it. Then one day, after what seems like years of searching, you stumble across one that’s not too bulky, has a good hood, and is waterproof enough. Hallelujah! Success at last! Or, so you think until you realize that it’s just plain ugly.
I’m sure you’ve figured out that I’m talking about the elusive functional and fashionable raincoat. Seriously, I’ve been looking for a long time, and I finally found the champion of all raincoats at Nordstrom Rack. And, since it’s from Nordstrom Rack it’s totally reasonable. This one is a good weight, has a normal hood that tucks away when you don’t need it, and it’s waterproof. Finally, it’s really cute.
Michael Michael Kors Raincoat available at Nordstrom Rack. For some reason it’s not on the website, so you’ll have to go to the store, but they had tons of them in several colors. Pants (click here) available at JCrew (25% off with code Summerlove). Similar shirt (click here) available at Loft. I should probably mention that my husband is also functional, fashionable, and the champion of all husbands.
