The end of Summer 2015 has been a bit wet, with late August proving something of a washout. However, have you ever heard the expression “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothing for it”? With a little bit of thought you can easily find fashionable ladies raincoats that will see off the worst of the British weather, so you can go about your business in comfort and style and stop caring about what the weather is doing. All the major UK fashion retailers have a good selection of ladies macs, so let’s take a look at some of the new season ladies raincoats for Autumn Winter 2015.
Firstly, here’s a lovely purple belted trench coat from M&S.
This raincoat is 6% wool, 23% polyamide and 12% cashmere, has a collared neck and one vent on the back, and costs £127.20. Dark purple and wine colours are on trend this AW15, and we think this particular trench looks very sophisticated, particularly when worn over a black outfit with black accessories. Alternatively, you can team it up with white or yellow clothing and accessories for a fresh and vibrant look. If you’re in need of some outfit inspiration, then try these womens clothing retailers.
Next up, this belted ladies mac from M&S, which offers incredible value at £36. This one is available in three colours, black, peacock and pebble (as pictured).
This raincoat is a good example of the superb value that can be found online. We think this mac looks very stylish with the black piping, and it should be very comfortable as it has adjustable cuffs and a rear vent. Marks and Spencer also employs some useful clothing technology in their products, with this one using special heat treated buttons (Buttonsafe technology) so the buttons won’t fall off, crease resistant technology to keep the garment looking good, and water repellent technology to ensure the raincoat is good at its key purpose of keeping you dry. The coat is lined but unpadded, and made from polyester, which means it’s machine washable and easy to take care of.
Debenhams is another major retailer that offers great value ladies raincoats. Take for example, this black ladies mac, which is just £45.
Black is such a stylish colour for your new mac, and always looks on point. A black ladies mac will go well with pretty much any outfit, and will bring instant class and elegance. Another advantage of black is that it doesn’t show the dirt. This particular coat is 55% cotton and 45% cotton, with a 100% polyester lining, and is machine washable, so it should be easy to keep looking good. The mac has a good belt and buttons up close to the neck so it will keep you well protected from the elements. If you aren’t yet convinced that black is the right colour for you, then take a look at this ladies black raincoat page where you will find more examples.
Next we visit La Redoute, a major French retailer offering plenty of Gallic flair. New for AW15 they have this very fetching long double-breasted beige ladies trench coat by Laura Clement for £135.
When it comes to style, the French know what they’re doing, as shown by the cut of this trench, which is effortlessly chic. The coat also has really lovely leather-look covered buckles and imitation horn buttons to give a classy finish. Beige is a colour classic for a trench coat, and will work well with all of your favourite outfits. This trench is made from 100% cotton twill with a water-repellent treatment, and has a 100% polyester lining. The belt is detachable and there’s a back vent to keep you comfortable. We think that at £135 this offers a lot for the money, but if you want something cheaper then we also note that the R edition Shopping Prix belted ladies trench coat is currently only £24.50 at La Redoute, which is staggering value.
Maybe you prefer something brighter for your outerwear. In this case, there is also plenty to choose from, and John Lewis has a great range. Maybe you want a bright blue, vibrant purple, radiant red or striking yellow and these are all possibilities. For example, there’s this cobalt blue ladies trench by Hobbs which retails for £189 at John Lewis.
This is a really gorgeous blue, and is a very up to the minute colour. The trench coat has a good collar, storm flaps and a tie waist to keep out the rain. The coat is also double breasted for a fashionable military coat vibe. Made from 96% cotton and 4% elastane, there’s a vent at the back for comfort. We think you’ll love the Hobbs craftsmanship that has gone into this trench, and you’ll appreciate the really lovely finish that will make it one of your go to coats.
Finally, if you want something fun and girly, we suggest a visit to Joules clothing. They have some very nice parkas in floral prints. A good example is this pack away womens parka in neon pink, which is only £44.95.
This is ideal if you just want something to stash away in case of rain, as it doesn’t take up much space once it’s folded into its bag. It’s 100% waterproof with a special coating and taped seams, but is also machine washable. We think you’ll agree it looks very pretty too, with it’s bold floral design.
So there we have it, a look at just some of the new season ladies raincoats for Autumn Winter 2015.
