As I peeled back my bedroom curtains to reveal sheets upon sheets of unrelenting rain, I sighed. My lightweight, leopard-print GANNI coat had served me well in autumn but it was no match for the winter drizzle. 'Don't you have a rain-proof mac you can wear?' my partner asked. I shook my head and shuddered. Does a chic hooded raincoat exist, I wondered.

I'm happy to report that indeed, if you look hard enough, you can find stylish rain macs. Moreover, I've done the trawling for you so you need only pick your favourite, throw it on with a cardigan and jeans or your favourite gym wear, and stay dry until the sun starts shining.

From city-ready, utility-inspired styles to cycling-friendly capes, classic gabardine jackets and even metallic options, these raincoats are lightweight, water-resistant – and all importantly – look good.
