We’ve waited with baited breath for the wet weather to disappear but those April showers have yet to subside. Unfortunately, that warm spell we experienced in March seems to have cruelly teased us into what we thought would be sun and blue skies. How wrong were we?
There is always a silver lining, even in the case of miserable weather, and it comes in a fashionable form. An excuse is here to treat yourself and fight the elements in this statement rain coat from ‘Band of Outsiders’, available at Mr Porter. This quirky canary hue is a perfect tone to brighten up a British summer, which is ironically famous for its grey skies, whilst the waxed cotton is breathable and waterproof – ideal for sheltering yourself from the downpour of the summer showers we are bound to have.
The jacket features a contrast zip-close fastening, a vent at the back and is finished with reinforced patches at the elbows. This Band of Outsiders rain coat is an easy alternative to the traditional trench and will certainly captivate the attention of many admirers. Although it may be expensive, it’s an investment that will serve you well through spring, summer and early autumn. The choice of yellow for the coat will complement this summer’s key neutral and pastel tones.
Band of Outsiders is an American brand formed in 2004 by former Hollywood agent Mr Scott Sternberg. It caters for those with geek-chic and preppy tendencies. This coat can be used for a contemporary or casual look depending on how it is styled. Channel the label’s laid back ethos and complete the look with linear lines and slim cut tailoring.
