You know how the saying goes: April showers bring May flowers. And as we’re fast approaching the former of the months, we believe that it’s time we trade in our down jackets for something a bit more light-weight.

With wetter weather imminent in the near future, we  look to a style of raincoat that has been the talk of the town recently: the mackintosh. The sleek, simple water-proof design has been around for many years (since 1824 to be exact), but retailers and designers alike have recently released a plethora of statement-making jackets that are bold, yet classic.

Whether you fancy rocking a bright blue or would rather opt for a subdued plaid, our favorite brands offer a range to please any wardrobe. Check out some of our favorites below and then let us know in the comments section if we missed any good ones!
