How hard can it be to find...

... to find a raincoat that doesn't look like I bought it from Mountain Warehouse and am about to trek up Snowdonia?  

Very is the answer.  From a scant glance at lots of sites, it seems that you're not allowed to go out in inclement weather and look stylish.   To be fair, I guess that does guess depend on what you're actually looking for...some people do just want something that is innately practical.  And for that, it can pretty much be purely functional.  When it comes to that though, I do like it have a level of detailing on it... I love the parka style.  Of course, if you're looking for something to wear for smarter purposes than probably a trench is going to be more the style that would work.  With either a hood or you could wear a separate hat. 

But for the purposes of this blog post, we're going practical with a hint of style.  Ones that you could happily wear to walk the dog or do the school run with your pyjamas on underneath.  Or you easily team with leather or faux leather trousers, chunky boots and on oversized knit.  Ideal for walks to the pub, for working from home, nipping to the supermarket - let's face it - everyday lockdown life.

There are other waterproof parka options but these are all quite lightweight.  I haven't gone for any puffa coats - these could all be worn in the Spring or Autumn and could be layered with knitwear underneath for warmth.  I personally find the super thick ones too heavy but that's just my personal preference. 

Starting with a super option from Arket.

Oversized rain parka from Arket £135

THIS is what I've gone for.. I couldn't get it in the Tall as I'm not a size 4... 

... and it's now sold out in the black BUT they do have in the burgundy in all sizes.

And a shorter one in khaki with a parka style drawstring waist... 

Pared back and minimal at Rains.  A hugely popular brand - I personally prefer more detailing but I know that some love the Scandi style elegance to these styles. 

They also have the parka style (which is sold out at the Rains site and pretty much most places!) in stock in all sizes at Collen & Clare.

Navy simplicity at Jigsaw.

Car Coat style at M&S - a classic pared back trench with a hood.  I actually think this is very Audrey Hepburn....

Simply styling again at Boden.

Another option at Superdry - in two colours.  This comes with the addition of a zip in zip out gilet as well - ideal for when the weather gets colder. 

An alternative version at Monki..

Lightweight full on functionality at M&S - ideal for slipping in your bag although we have lost all sense of super style here... WELL - I say that... BUT I think if you teamed it with all black and white trainers or monochrome with black chunky boots, this would definitely have a much more "cool" vibe to it...

And then finishing with THE PERFECT RAINCOAT.  If I didn't have my 

And here I am in the ASOS one (now sold out in the black but still available in the burgundy).

And next time.. it's time for the CHECK COATS!!

  5. A hooded leather jacket is exactly what it sounds like: a genuine leather jacket featuring a hood.leather jacket with hood The vast majority of leather jackets on the market are made without hoods. There’s nothing wrong with this style — on the contrary, hoodless jackets are simple and fun to wear. But adding a hood gives the leather jacket greater functionality, which is something that we’re going to discuss further.

  17. God is Good! I promised God that I would share my testimony on this website. I had all the signs of STD Virus but I was not too sure as to which one. I did a lot of online research and I WAS scared myself for a whole week before going to see the nurse. She took one look at my genital part and first said that it could just be the anatomy of my body, then she said it looked like genital warts and that I MAY have herpes. I was devastated. She gave me some medicine for the herpes and some cream for the warts. I was also tested for every single STD including herpes. I went home and cried searching the web for all sorts of cures for herpes and awaiting my results. I saw a post whereby Dr. Razor cured Herpes and other diseases, I copied his contacts out and added him on WhatsApp via +2349065420442. The next day my test result was ready and I confirmed Herpes positive. I told Dr. Razor about my health problems and he assured me of a cure. He prepared his herbal medicine and sent it to me. I took it for 18 days . Before the completion of the 18 days in which I completed the dose, the Blisters and Warts that were on my body were cleared. I went back for a check-up and I was told I'm free from the virus. Dr. Razor cures all types of diseases and viruses with the help of his herbal medicine.
