Trench Coats and Umbrellas

It's been raining all week in London but this doesn't mean you have to stay home. You can embrace the spirit of Gene Kelly in Singin' in the Rain (1952) and get out with a smile on your face, maybe to watch the musical based on this film, now showing at the Palace Theatre.

Fashion can be a great ally not only to protect you from the elements keeping you dry but also to lift up your mood and make you feel beautiful. Without wanting to fall into a cliché, Burberry Prorsum is one of the best labels to invest regarding the trench coat.

This is a brand with years of experience and Christopher Bailey is always trying out new elements to revive Burberry's classic trench. It's refreshing to wear colourful interpretations which stand out from a sea of standard shapes, with high impact details and elegantly tailored.

But if you are on a budget, you can still challenge this miserable weather with an orange trench coat from Asos and brighten up your day with this rainbow inspired umbrella.

Cream colour is undoubtedly a classic and will always look good. If you are like Coco Chanel and consider black as the ultimate chic, you may be seduced by this Top Shop version with a draped neckline. I like London in the rain!
