Singing Stylishly in the Rain

So fashion week has started, the heavens have opened again with driving rain and wind. Those who persist with high heeled fashionable footwear do deserve medals for bravery, but rain and fashion need not be enemies.

Before Fashion Week even began our country was beleaguered by rain and having suffered last season being drenched to the skin I decided to take precautions trialled one of Seasalt's Seafolly jackets which is made out of a special water repellant fabric called Tin Cloth, named after the tin mining industry of Seasalt's native Cornwall. I chose the sou'wester yellow and when the heaven's opened whilst queuing I was completely warm, dry, stylish and very smug. Their Tin Cloth is waterproof, windproof and breathable, so when I went inside to the show I looked down and saw the rain drops just sitting on the cloth so I could just shake off the wetness, no "anorak" sweatiness, just warm and dry, I've had expensive Goretex coats perform less well, so this little yellow jacket gets a ten out of ten.

The day before I had worn my customary biker jacket and juggled my beloved Jeremy Scott umbel but today I could go hands free. Incredibly good value, the longer line coats are classic styling but bold enough to be a statement coat.

If you want to mock the rain with colour then Ilse Jacobsen is your first port of call. Beloved of Alexa Chung this brand has a whole palette of this seasons hot candy colours and pastels in waterproof coats, laced wellie sand umbrellas.

For the classic rain repelling styling the Burberry Trench Coat is the must have. No one does it better than Burberry but if you want to stray away from the classics their spring summer pastel coats although in trend colours are so beautiful that I would class them as an investment.
