Ah, raincoats. We’ve been trying to write a new post about them for you for a while now. Turns out there are only a handful of raincoat options that we think are exciting. Good news: they’re all in this post.

3 Cute Rain Jackets We Have & Love

As your resident Northwesterner here, I get really sick of raincoats each year, but, alas, I also really need raincoats each year. So finding cute ones that I don’t tire of is saying a lot, my friends.

We’ve all had all of the options below for at least a year or so, and while current color options may be slightly different, these styles are tried and tested and beloved by us all.

So let’s just go ahead and get into our favs for those rainy days…

1. The North Face City Breeze Waterproof Rain Jacket

at Backcountry | at Nordstrom | at Zappos

Shana and I both adore The North Face rain jackets. Our favorite is the City Breeze style that has been updated over the past few years.

The North Face City Breeze jacket has some magical rain-blasting fabric and the drops just fall right off. It also has adorable trench coat details that make it feel more special and chic than your typical rain jacket. The colors are stunning, and the whole thing is warm, but also lightweight, as I mentioned. It’s a real winner.

I also really need raincoats each year, so finding cute rain jackets that I don't tire of (that are also water-resistant or waterproof) is saying a lot.

My City Breeze is a slightly older version and Shana’s is the current version, but both are phenomenal at keeping you dry while looking cute. This is a lighter weight raincoat. I think if you plan to wear any thicker sweaters underneath, size up. Otherwise, it fits true to size.

These pics were taken in winter of 2020, and I’m still rocking this coat — just wore it to the Oregon coast yesterday. My navy is sold out right now, but check out Shana’s gorgeous sage green below (among the other great neutrals it comes in.)

Our go-to rainy day outfit consist of 4 hardworking (yet cute!) pieces -- a stylish raincoat, cool jeans, rad combat boots & a good water-resistant bag.

A lightweight, windproof + breathable rain jacket? Found! The perfect comfy-yet-stylish waterproof must-have is here (oh, hey North Face!) & we are big fans.

Shana says: I love the longer, parka-length jacket. Instead of rivulets of water running down and soaking my bum, this parka really does keep my legs dry. The hood works great, the sleeves are nice and long (and can be cinched in,) and the collar is comfortable even when zipped.

2. The Everlane ReNew Anorak

Have you found a pretty raincoat you love? These pretty, affordable (& sustainable) Everlane anoraks & ponchos make the gray days easier.

I mean, how lovely is the Everlane ReNew Anorak? So pretty, and a nice mid-weight fabric on this beauty that Everlane sent over earlier this year. I love the shape, the split-hem, the hood, the drawstring at the waist…love it all. This is my new go-to raincoat. Also, the fabric isn’t loud. Does that make sense? It’s not the slick fabric of many raincoats that gets all swishy when you move.

The ReNew Anorak is water-resistant, so it’s a great everyday raincoat out here (but not for hiking/camping per se) We don’t get the huge downpours typically, but we need all the raincoat options. The hood has lots of room, but doesn’t block your view either. The best thing about this anorak, though, is the gorgeous colors it comes in…dusty lavender, espresso, taupe, black and olive. My pale blue is a spring color, so hopefully that’ll come back in a few months!

3. The J.Crew Perfect Rain Jacket

I also really need raincoats each year, so finding cute rain jackets that I don't tire of (that are also water-resistant or waterproof) is saying a lot.

Scotti Says: “…when I saw the “Perfect Rain Jacket” from J. Crew, it was an easy choice. It’s water-resistant, so while not fully 100% waterproof, it provides enough protection for what I’d use it for. I like all of the details: the adjustable waist, the hood with a drawcord, the gold buttons and snaps, the fishtail hem, and the pockets to hold everything I need.

This rain jacket is available in sizes XXS-3X. One note about sizing: it runs big. I’m wearing an XS here (usually small or XS in jackets and coats) and could easily go down to an XXS.”

Hunter rain boots are a go-to for socializing outside & J.Crew's cute, functional Perfect Rain Jacket is just that. Hello, physically distant fun!

Em says: “This lightweight rain jacket is perfect for our misty mornings — it keeps the sog at bay while not seeming too overkill when it’s not actually pouring. (Lord, what I would give for a real downpour right now, though!) Totally breathable, layerable and the hood is right-sized and stays put. The waist cinches in for more of a tailored look, but I tend to wear it long and loose. Plenty of pockets for stashing all the things, too, if, like me, you use wearing a jacket as an opportunity to forego carrying a bag.” She also noted that this is ‘quite the look’ but just threw it over her school drop-off outfit for us this morning. I’m actually totally digging it, Em. Haha.

  1. Hi there – most of the JCrew options are already sold. Love the style and this would have been perfect. Maybe an append with other options to this post? always looking for for good-looking rain jackets. Cheers, Katharina

    • I know it’s so frustrating that things sell out before we can even get our articles written these days! While we haven’t tried this one, the Joules raincoats get great reviews and this has a similar shape to the J.Crew. As I mentioned, we’ll keep an eye out for restocks, too!

  2. I love my Boden raincoats with super fun prints. They may not work for the rainiest of rainy seasons but they’re so much fun and I get compliments all the time.

  3. I have an earlier version of the All in Motion Waterproof Rain Jacket from Target (mine isn’t sold anymore), and absolutely love it. It’s flattering, lightweight, and affordable.

  4. I’ve had the J Crew rain jacket for a few years now & it’s so good! A few years back, my family went to LA for our spring break & it rained constantly—yuck. We spent a day at Universal Studios & that jacket was what made it all bearable. The pockets are fantastic, as was mentioned, & it definitely runs big. Hopefully, it will come back in stock for others who are interested.
