40 Ways To Style Waterproof Coats – The Hard-Core Look
The idea of waterproof coats isn’t exactly sexy. They’re practical and functional but stylish? You wouldn’t think so. But, you can protect yourself from the elements without necessarily looking dishevelled. Just because the weather is dull and drab, doesn’t mean your look has to be too. So here are 40 ways to style your waterproof coats:
# 1 The Knit Scarf Pairing
You can wear your simple, dark, button-down, waterproof coat unbuttoned, but pair it with a knit scarf for a dapper look. This pairing allows you to keep warm and works best with a boxy or a hooded coat. The bold buttons give the look a pop of color.
# 2 The Bright Delight
You can have fun and be safe with a bright yellow waterproof coat, but wear it with dark colors so as to tone down the bright color and to avoid color clashing. Pair it with a dark hat and a dark t-shirt underneath. Wear it open-necked to create a collar and to give a glimpse of the darker colors underneath.
# 3 Jacket Over Jacket
Don’t be afraid to wear your waterproof coats on top of warmer jackets. Remember to leave the front open to avoid looking constricted. The jacket over jacket style is best if the outer coat is a lighter color than the inner jacket.
# 4 The Parka
Wear a vintage parka for a casual and more practical look. You can be snug and still look fun and edgy. Faux fur around the wrists give this look a unique edge.
# 5 The Cyclist
Cycling in the rain? Try a practical black, knee length coat that pulls up to your neck. It not only protects your neck and knees as you cycle, it gives you an edgy androgynous look and room around your legs for easy movement. Waterproof coats for cycling should be wider at the bottom.
# 6 The Bold Oversized Coat
Have fun with a bold-colored oversize coat. Wear one lined with a brightly colored material for a more casual touch. You can have even more fun with a matching bag but pair the look with dark colors to tone it down.
