As the final months of the year approaches, so does the monsoon season in our part of the world. You know, sometimes the umbrella (no matter how massive) just doesn’t cut it; you’re still bound to get wet when a gust of wind sweeps through. What do we suggest? Raincoats.

Not only are those waterproof coats no longer made just for children to brave the rain in, they also come in sleeker styles and shapes for adults. Scroll through for 5 chic numbers – one for each work day!
