A good raincoat is a must-have in Singapore given our tropical climate. One minute you can be basking in the sunshine while the next you’ll be dashing from a downpour. This temperamental weather means you have to be ready for anything, and besides an umbrella (which doesn’t always hold up so well in the wind), a raincoat is the best way to go.
While technical wear has previously been accused of being frumpy, dull and reserved for outdoorsy types, designers today are coming up with a whole host of flattering silhouettes, colourful designs and comfortable fits. In fact, a little shower can actually help enhance an outfit if you bring some chic yet functional rain gear into rotation. Shop our top 10 picks in the gallery below.
