A rainy day style guide
We all know that sinking feeling when you wake up to a rainy day or dull sky. "What clothes do I put on?", we glumly ask ourselves. "What shoes do I wear? Do I even HAVE a waterproof jacket?"
Luckily for you, Joules loves the outdoors no matter what and can help you get the most of your day – whatever the weather. Our style experts put together this rainy-day style guide to take the guesswork out of staying dry, warm and looking good when it’s pouring down. From raincoats to rain boots, we’ll help you shine a light on the dourest and dampest days.
What to wear in the rain
A waterproof raincoat and shoes are the perfect foundation garments to build an outfit to keep you as dry as possible. When it comes to choosing the most suitable rain outfit, try to avoid leggings and trousers made from cotton.
Jeans also tend to be made from a thicker fabric which holds moisture in, meaning they are slow to dry and leave you uncomfortably sodden for longer. Instead, choose nylon leggings, or tights paired with a dress or skirt, as they are lightweight, breathable and dry quickly.
Stay prepared by carrying an umbrella with you no matter where you go. Our handy umbrellas are available in unique Joules prints, so you can make a bold statement when keeping yourself out of the rain.
What COAT to wear in the rain
A waterproof raincoat with a hood is your best option. Our Right as Rain collection has colorful waterproof coats and jackets for women, men and kids, making it perfect for the whole family. If you’re wearing the right clothes, there’s no such thing as bad weather, and choosing a vibrant colored raincoat will make a dull day brighter.
The best women’s raincoats can be found in our Right as Rain collection. Our range takes the hard work out of finding the perfect one. Choose our Coast Jacket for a 100% waterproof and breathable raincoat that’s sure to keep you warm and dry. The Coast is available in a range of colors, making it the optimal option for adding a little ‘pop’ to your rainy-day outfit. If you like prints on your jackets, then our Go Lightly Jacket is the choice for you. With a selection of unique Joules prints, this jacket will have you raring to seek adventure in the great outdoors.
Our men’s raincoats are stylish, durable and designed to keep you warm and dry. Choose the Portwell Lightweight Jacket for a simple yet effective way of defeating the drizzle. You can pick from a range of colors to discover the look that best suits your wardrobe.
And don’t let the rain stop your kids’ playtime by kitting them out in a colorful coat that will see off the heaviest of downpours. Our range of raincoats for little ones offers a variety of bright hues and prints to make a rainy-day that little bit more exciting!
With Joules’ wet weather wear for the whole family, you have no excuse to avoid the outdoors when it’s raining. Head on an adventure and spend some fun family time together.
What are the best shoes to wear in the rain?
Although any type of waterproof shoe, such as leather boots or sneakers, are suitable for wet weather, the best shoes for the rain are rain boots (hence the name!). As well as keeping your feet dry, they protect you (and your clothes) from mud so you can enjoy the outdoors care-free. Rain boots come in a range of styles to pair perfectly with almost any outfit. Our women’s rain boots complement our Right as Rain collection and are available in sizes to suit every individual and, thanks to Joules’ unique prints, they’re our best-loved products.
If you’re heading into town and want something more discreet, our ankle-length Wellibobs are perfect, but if you’re trekking through muddy fields, our Molly or Field rain boots are the best option. These rain boots have a longer length and offer better protection for your feet and legs.
Joules’ range of men’s rain boots are also a great choice for braving the wet weather. A true symbol of the countryside, men can make sure they’re still active even when it’s pouring outside. Built to last, our men’s rain boots are sure to keep feet warm and dry, and our ankle rain boots have an almost sneaker-like look to keep you feeling stylish.
The rain can turn the great outdoors into a giant playground for kids, so our girls’ rain boots and boys’ rain boots are essential for splashing in puddles. Our bright and colorful styles and bold patterns brighten up any dull day. Just pop on their rain boots and wrap them up in a rain coat and they’ll be ready to find some fun – and give mom and dad a welcome break!
