STYLE COLUMN: April Showers With The Best Wet Weather Pieces From Van Mildert

AI Riders On The Storm jacket, £160.
Joules, Parkfield jacket, £129.
Pinko Mayor Tropical Parka, £335.

Getting rained on is rarely fun but sadly it’s almost guaranteed in April. A weather resistant jacket therefore becomes a spring and possibly summer essential – we all know what British summertime can be like.

And with the clocks going forward the days become warmer you can forget those stuffy woollens and go for something light and comfortable.

Right now at Van Mildert we have some great pieces available. One of my personal favourites, and ideal if you like your fashion a little different, is this reversible Pinko Mayor Tropical Parka, £335.

The Italian brand is new to us this season and I can see this daring yet on-trend jacket being a huge hit at festivals across the country.

If you prefer your fashion with a little bit more tradition then this Ted Baker Meeliye Trench Coat is an absolute must have. A good trench coat is something every girl should own as it can be worn season after season and can be revamped each year to keep looking fresh and on trend.

Joules, a brand known for its cute and quirky outdoor wear, has this season designed the gorgeous lightweight Parkfield jacket, at quite a steal for £129. I love the yellow version we currently have in stock, the bright colour is right on trend for this season, instantly lifting your mood making you want to escape to the country for a long weekend.

But if country walks and traditional trench coats aren’t your thing then this AI Riders On The Storm jacket, £160, could be just what you’re looking for. Available in pink and blue the lenses are detachable and thanks to the zip-through hood you need never get rained on – a definite one for you fashion daredevils!
