Raincoats For Women

Raincoats For Women do more than keep your head, arms, shoulders and back dry when the weather is less than ideal. They can be the perfect complement or centerpiece of an outfit, as long as they are styled correctly and fit properly.

There are several main types of raincoats available, including the poncho,trench coat, andanorakstyles. One of the most popular is the poncho. A poncho is traditionally a woven woolen cloth that fits over the head. This style of raincoat does not usually have arm holes, and is longer in the front and back than on the sides, allowing you to move your arms freely. Poncho’s can also be made of plastic, although this style is inexpensive and often sold at outdoor and sporting events to keep the rain off of patrons’ heads and bodies. This type of raincoat (the woven variety) goes in and out of style, and are usually more utilitarian than fashion forward.

If you are looking for a raincoat with some flair or a trendy component, look no further than Designer Raincoats. These raincoats can be designed by any number of international and U.S. based fashion designers, including Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Burberry, Chanel, Prada  and Hermes. Often, these designer raincoats are made in unusual styles, have unique proportions or trimmings, or are made of a non-traditional fabric. For example, several years ago, Prada sent clear plastic raincoats down the runway that were designed to be completely out of proportion with the rest of the outfit that they were worn over.

Several recent collections, those of American’s Jason Wu and Phillip Lim, have featured raincoats. Jason Wu’s raincoats were in creative colors, like pink and bright yellow, and were shown paired with hot pants and bra tops. They were uniquely cut, and longer in the front than in the back. The raincoats shown at Phillip Lim’s show were traditionally cut, but were made of a transparent white fabric.

While some designer raincoats are clearly non-traditional, others are, and can be worn with regular every day looks. For example, Michael Kors and Burberry both make a stylish traditional raincoat, available with or without a hood.
