Insomniac Sale Picks: Flattering Raincoats

*In this new late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Helen requested a few picks for flattering raincoats, so here we go:

DKNY Belted Rain/Trench Coat – was $76.99, now $69.29

Ahhh, the classic. This take on the water-resistant trench appeals to me as a gal who likes a cinched waist and a full skirt – both flattering details for pear-shaped figures. The deep V opening will look marvelous with most face shapes, too. This coat is water resistant but not waterproof, and runs a size large. Available in XS through XL in black, S through XL in camel.

Marmot Destination Jacket II – was $225, now $169.99

Although this coat is considerably sportier than the belted trench-style one above, it’s still got a very sleek, chic overall look. It features a shaped waist, gently flared hem, and nice long lines. Plus it’s not just water resistant, it’s waterPROOF! Available in XS through XL in both this dark olive and classic black. Also comes in plaid.

Merrell Frances Jacket – was $149, now $59.60

Depending on your proportions, a shorter jacket style might work better. Petite women and those wishing to balance torso/leg proportions might benefit from a hip-length raincoat like this Merrell version, which also features a waist-defining belt. (Belt is removable, and the coat is designed to look finished even without the belt.) This cutie is waterproof and breathable. Prices vary, but this coat comes in this bright coral, light turquoise, black, and tan. Largest size range is available in the brights, XS through XL.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for flattering raincoats:

  1. The North Face – I no longer believe this manufacturer creates superior down coats, but dang, they’ve got an amazing array of shaped, flattering water resistant and waterproof coats and jackets. Particularly loving the Erin style.
  2. Nordstromicon – More than 70 fun raincoats in a gorgeous array of shades. Size availability is patchy, but do take a peek.
  3. Amazon – As always, this clearinghouse offers up a huge array of options, including petite, tall, and plus sizes.

    Love these coats! I totally sympathize with Helen for wanting some help finding flattering raincoats; I didn’t own a raincoat at all until about a month ago (even though it rains A LOT where I live) because I abhor the bulky, shapeless look of so many raincoats out there.

    I now own two (!) raincoats, both of which I got way on sale. One of them is a trench from Banana Republic (kind of like the DKNY one above), and was marked down and then further reduced at their after-the-holidays sale. The other is Betsey Johnson from Burlington Coat Factory. Anyone who has a Burlington near them and who is looking for a raincoat should check out their selection. This coat apparently retails for $200, but I got it for $50. It’s classic black, sleek, and cute, and I love it even more because I got it at 75% off!

    Hi Sal!

    Need a black or gray crossbody bag with SILVER hardware that won’t break the bank. Any ideas, thee of the silver marker pen đŸ˜‰ ???

    I own the DKNY trench (birthday present to myself last May) and it’s fabulous! Longer than you’d expect, but very flattering.
