It seems the weather man’s not been kind and April is sure to bring forth more than a dollop of drizzle (what’s new?). Suppose it’s time to bring out the trusty old waterproof jacket that’s been gathering dust in the back of your wardrobe, huh? But if , like us, you can’t stand looking at (let alone wearing) that faded parka you lived in last year, here’s a smattering of tempting new season options to ponder over…
With designer stores and high street shelves brimming with irresistible styles – be it transparent, sporty, classic or cropped (Christopher Raeburn’s are even eco-friendly) – that ‘practical-means-having-to-compromise-your-fashion-forward-flair’ excuse isn’t even close to being valid.
Take a look at our April Showers Scrapbook for a little inspiration before precipitation starts. Trust us, not only will they keep you dry, they make for great investment pieces too.
