A Rain Jacket That’s Stylish AND Functional? Yes, Please

Tend to panic when you see raindrops pop up on your weather app of choice? We get it—most of the weatherproof outerwear options out there don’t exactly scream street style. So when we come across a water-repellant jacket that nails both fashion and function, you can’t blame us for wanting to twirl an umbrella and sing its praises for all to hear. The jacket in question? lululemon’s Rain Haven Jacket ($228), aka the versatile hero piece of any rainy fall ensemble, whether you’re crushing a run in the drizzle or dashing to the subway in a downpour.

WHAT IT IS

lululemon’s Rain Haven Jacket is a waterproof and windproof seamless anorak. Designed with a chic tailored fit to keep you dry, it’s also outfitted with thoughtful details like a cinchable hood, spacious pockets, and a high-zip neck. The breathable fabric is engineered with three layers to nix that hot, sticky feeling raincoats are notoriously famous for (hallelujah). Best of all, it’s lightweight and easy to throw in your bag on the go.

WHY WE NEED TO HAVE IT

We’re all about pieces that pull double duty, so we love that lululemon’s Rain Haven Jacket protects us from the elements and adds practical polish to any outfit. Layer it over a light sweater and leggings for grabbing a latte at that new café down the street, or pair it with your favorite activewear to defy inclement weather after spin class. Like we said, endless styling options. Pro tip: Cinch the waist with the inside draw cord to emphasize your waist.
