You may think April showers brings May flowers, but every year we get it wrong. While our minds are constantly on the thought of warm weather during the summer, we tend to forget about the weeks of thunderstorms that come with it. Whether we like it or not we have to admit this: it rains in the summer! And though an umbrella and boots will do some good, you still need to cover up so your clothes don’t get wrinkled and wet.
You need a rain coat, but not just any rain coat. With summer comes the heat, so it’s not like you’ll want to pull out your winter one to protect you from the rain and humidity. Instead, you’ll need a lighter, comfortable jacket that won’t stick to your skin during those humid rainstorms. We suggest a lined rain coat with lightweight material. So check out this slideshow of perfect summer raincoats, you never know when it’ll thunderstorm next!
