Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain. . .part IV: rain coats
Ah, the classic Burberry trench coat. Every girl should have one at some point in their lives. This color is like the British black. It goes with practically everything. And the style, well the style is simply gorgeous and makes one feel like they're walking down a chic London street. . Bond Street anyone?
But for a more Spring 2005 look, this red floral Burberry trench is just the thing. It is a combination of the bright color and floral print that is so popular this season. And the other thing about this trench is that it is laminated! You are most defintely not going to get soaked with this on.
But to be even more adventurous, try this white Burberry trench cape. It is water resistant, so it can keep you dry. And the cape style allows you to show off whatever you're wearing underneath. Plus, it is white so it'll match whatever it is underneath too. In addition, due to the plastic material, you won't even have to worry the white getting all dirty under the rain-defintely a bonus!
Stepping away from Burberry, other designers have also come up with brilliant trench coats. Take this stylish pink trench from Marc by Marc Jacobs for example. It retains the conventional trench style, but the cutting and style definitely differentiates it from the typical burberry.
For a more affordable trench however, this one from Anthropology is perfect. The neat stylish cutting and pink color of this trench lends it a ladylike flair.
With these rain essentials all in place to stay dry and fashionable this season, let the raining begin!
