I’ve now lived in Portland, Oregon, going on 12 years…and let me tell you. There are a lot of sad raincoats out there, haha.

But with the help of my fellow boring-raincoat-hater/fearless leader, Shana, we were able to round up 12 chic, fun raincoats that AREN’T sad! Like this bright & happy yellow raincoat. (Also, 12 rain jackets for 12 years living in Portland? Sounds good to me!)

Tired Of Boring Raincoats? Try These (Free People, adidas, Athleta, Boden & More)

I’ve long appreciated those Shirley Manson lyrics, and there are times in the year when I am only happy when it rains…but it turns out spring is not one of those times.

Raincoats are such a staple here in the Pacific Northwest that I really need something that works, obviously, but that also has some flare, some color, something that makes my designer heart sing. Happy raincoat, happy life? Isn’t that the saying?

It should be here on the Upper Left Coast!

Forget the boring rain jackets, & try these 12 raincoats that AREN'T sad! Think: bright & happy (& waterproof) coats from Free People, adidas, Athleta & more.
