I’m a sucker for outerwear — hence the reason the fall season tickles my fancy. For cold weather I usually go trench or shearling coats, but on cool breezy days I always reach for a good fitted zip-up slicker. I generally keep the color of my coats pretty basic, like cream, brown or navy, but the polyester-linen blend that most slickers are made of favors the chance of rocking a bright color. The one I’m wearing is from ZARA and it features elbow patches with matching side panels and a removable hood, but there are tons of smart slickers out there from other brands like Gant, Oliver Spencer, and Billy Reid. Buy one that fits as good as a suit jacket and wear it with pretty much anything. The best part is that while a slicker will help you survive a showery day, no precipitation is needed to be worn.
