Spring was basically designed to throw all outerwear lovers into a deep confusion after the certainty of winter. Just as we get accustomed to the temperatures and the fact that we need to wear X amount of layers, spring arrives to completely disorientate us. Some days are hot like summer, others cold like winter, and sometimes it’s even kinda autumnal. So what the hell are you meant to wear?
Rain jackets. You need to find the lowest common denominator of what’s absolutely necessary. If you ask us, the answer to that is something that will fend off a quick shower here and there. We’re not necessarily talking about taped-seams and GORE-TEX shells, even a hard-wearing cotton canvas will do the job.
Below, with the help of Harvey Nichols, we’ve rounded up 7 spring rain jackets, or, to be exact, 7 jackets that can cope with spring showers.
