Am I too late for a nice shower proof mac/rain coat? I want something trendy-ish but would like to stay dry too!

I know I have left it late to be looking, story of my life, but has anyone spotted any decent summer/early autumn shower proof coats/jackets/macs still around...? TIA for any tips!

Um, is this too staid? rigin=index

Thanks counting but is a little 'safe' perhaps! smile

Oh and M & S have quite a few mid-season macs, too numerous to list but I like this one: ?ie=UTF8&node=&m=A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&keywords=&mnSBrand=core&size=9&rh=n%3A43109030&page=4

don't know how waterproof they are though ..

I like this funnel neck ?ie=UTF8&node=&m=A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&keywords=&mnSBrand=core&size=9&rh=n%3A43109030&page=5

M & S water-repellent parka (fairly stylish): ?ie=UTF8&node=&m=A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&keywords=&mnSBrand=core&size=9&rh=n%3A43109030&page=7

some macs also have "stormwear" moniker which presumbably refers to impermeability ...??

Yes, both nice, those. The funnel neck one is my favourite of the 2. Makes me realise Im a bit of a scruff bag and looking for something quite casual...Im a jeans girl tbh!May go and try on the funnel one and give it a try. Thanks.

sorry ONW - x posts!
Probably all a little too safe ... I am living up to my nickname ...grin

Oh x posts again!! Glad you like the last one ...

OlderNotWiser Sat 01-Aug-09 16:23:24

Hmm yes, rather like the parka would tidy up my usual 'look' a bit!

OlderNotWiser Sat 01-Aug-09 16:26:19

Oh no need to apologise!! Thats the good thing about asking others for ideas, it takes me to items I wouldnt normally notice which is a good thing! I am in a rut the size of the grand canyon!

I've just bought this and I love it. Not sure how showerproof it is, hopefully will see off a bit of rain!

Nice too wem, but sadly too smart for the likes of me!

wem Sat 01-Aug-09 16:29:41

Well, it's part of my attempt to smarten myself up but I intend wearing it with jeans

I have this one. Maybe a bit young and trendy, but I like it!
