A well designed waterproof Mac or traditional grungy parka can be your best friend in a shower or storm; whether you’re a smart dresser or a casual fashionista there’s a waterproof coat for you. Similarly by ditching the wellies and investing in a pair good quality boots you will be able to face any puddle in style. In short rain doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to take a hit; with a bit of planning and some wise purchases you can look as chic is wet weather as you do in the sunshine. So, without further ado, here’s a quick roundup of the most stylish wet weather fashion Lux-Fix has to offer.

Let’s start with UK based design collective Protected Species; Protected Species use technically sophisticated but functional outerwear that doesn’t compromise on style. Case in point their fashionable West End Waterproof Mac which combines timeless styling with cutting edge design. This traditional looking Mac is actually made of Fluid Intelligent Fabric making it a modern and practical twist on a classic. This coat may be waterproof but you can style it in much the same way as any Mac or trench; in short this is a raincoat that you could wear office in pride.

The parka is the ultimate practical but stylish coat; a good parka should be robust enough to shelter you from the elements but also have a rock ‘n’ roll inspired cool all of its own. Just about every high street store comes up with a parka each winter but British brand Parka London’s coats are a cut above the rest. Their designs are simple, classic and hardwearing with an undeniably British feel; their pieces are simply designed for the British climate. Their Freja Parka (above) is loose fitting enough to fit over even the chunkiest of knitwear and also has a water resistant finish making it ideal for cold, rainy days

A good pair of boots is a must for winter, wet weather or no and a hardy pair of riding boots can make a great alternative to wellies. The Spanish Boot Company creates classic, practical riding boots inspired by traditional Spanish boots. The brand’s boots are certainly functional and perfect for equestrian enthusiasts but they are also well designed and beautifully crafted making them also fit for day-to-day use. Their Polo Boots for example could be used for riding but they would also work just as well as fashionable city footwear. This combination of style and practicality make The Spanish Boot Company’s boots a very stylish wet weather option indeed.
