Not to take away from this, and probably slightly hypocritically (as it probably won't be helping the environment), I have been looking for a coat that can cope with what seems like 300 days of rain a year. I have been lusting after yellow raincoats, which seem to have been everywhere... right before I decided I wanted one, and completely sold out now!
Here are my favourites.
This one is the most expensive I have found and it's from Petit Bateau. I did see it a while ago but thought to myself "I can find the same thing, but cheaper." It turns out I could (see below)... but they are both now sold out.
This coat is by Seainside, and is reasonably priced, free shipping, but SOLD OUT. Damn! Isn't it a beauty?
Topshop had a yellow raincoat for sale not long ago. It's cute, but I was imagining a coat a little less shiny, if I'm honest. I like the buttons and the black sleeves though. If I found one and tried it on, I would probably be tempted by this one.
Pull and Bear is a make I have only recently discovered. They did a drop-dead-gorgeous yellow raincoat, but again, it seems to be sold out. It's pretty much exactly what I was looking for, although I've started to realise if I squint, she looks a little bit like a fireman. Hmm..
This Seafolly coat is a little more laid back, and seems to be in stock at Seasalt Cornwall, but it is a little shorter than I was hoping to find, and looks a bit wide on the photo. I may risk it, but I'm not yet convinced.
Which coat do you like best? Do you know of any other places selling yellow raincoats? I'd settle for a red one if it's gorgeous!
