A great raincoat has been on top of my wish-list for quite a while now and since I tend to get all my coats and jackets in black, I thought about choosing white for a change. As April showers approach, it is absolutely necessary to have at least one decent coat when it's pouring outside and you have to get from point A to point B. It's one of the things I hate about living in a city as big as Berlin: when it starts raining and you still have a 30 min ride home ahead of you. It makes me miss my hometown and the convenience of having a car to jump in and it definitely frustrates me that I still haven't signed up on Car2go, Drive Now or any other car sharing service there is.
Scoring a waterproof and affordable raincoat is quite a challenge but once you have one, it's all about looking chic and not like you're about to do some gardening. Mine is from Esprit and they also sell it in yellow as well as black and navy in case you'd prefer to be subtle. I paired it with other light colors to show that black isn't always the only option. Would this go perfectly with an all-black look? Of course but white creates the perfect casual, sporty spring-look for the inevitable April showers. Don't say I didn't warn you ;-)
