During the transition months between Winter and Spring, a good raincoat is a must for your little guy. Whether he loves Elmo, dinosaurs, or superheroes, we've found cute, functional raincoats to suit any personality — and any occasion. Here are 10 adorable raincoats for boys, from a preppy plaid to a sleek Sunday minitrench.
'Tis the season for sleet and rain, so bundle up your girls in cute, cozy coats to keep them warm and dry. From bright, colorful polka dots to a sweet ladybug print, here are 10 great raincoats for the lil puddle-splashers in your home!
If you live on the Eastern seaboard, chances are your weekend plans may get ruined by Irene — Hurricane Irene. Since millions of Fab readers will be affected by the rain, we put together a little shopping list of super cute rain gear. On that note, we don't advise anyone to go outdoors during a hurricane, but in the rainy calm before the storm, you can at least take pleasure in looking as adorable as Blair Waldorf in a classic Burberry trench in Gossip Girl.
>> We're expecting a load of rain showers for the next couple weeks, so we rounded up some of the best rain-repelling (but still stylish) gear for you to stay dry in. There's a cute Marc by Marc Jacobs umbrella to add a little sunshine to your day, a smart canvas coated coat from Opening Ceremony, waterproof booties, and a windproof bucket hat from Urban Outfitters — that should do the trick. But there's more where that came from — check out the slideshow for more of our splash-proof favorites!
Spring has sprung! With thoughts of blooming flowers, warmer temperatures, and outdoor play, Spring is also the season of frequent rain showers. Before the downpours start, head pick up a slicker that will keep your tot dry during unexpected downpours. While the yellow Petit Bateau jacket is a classic, there are plenty of fun other styles to get your lil one excited about the wet weather. From a surfboard print that will have kids (and their moms) dreaming of their next vacation to a superhero version that will help them leap over puddles in a single bound, start shopping by clicking on the images above.
Nahla Aubry looked cute as a bug — be it a ladybug or butterfly — when she was out with her mommy! The tot braved a rainy day in a bright red and black spotted raincoat. The slicker ($50) is part of Western Chief's line of character-enhanced rain gear for kids. Popular among Hollywood's small set — Max Bratman wore the Batman jacket during the same storm — many of the coats double as Halloween costumes that last long past the holiday.
As fashion fads come and go, the little yellow Petit Bateau raincoat ($129) has maintained an even keel - not succumbing to the "it" style of the moment. With its blue and white-striped milleraies lining, knit cuffs, and waterproof polyester coating, the French slicker has obtained icon status - attracting the eye of celeb tots such as Matilda Ledger. For the first time in the company's 117-year history, Petit Bateau is turning its attention to the lil one's rain-soaked mama and is introducing an adult-sized version of its classic jacket. Available at stores this Fall, the grown-up coat is made from the same materials, features the same traditional cotton lining and has its own equally adorable front pockets. Starting at $150, it's only a few dollars more than the kiddie version.
It's not yet May, but here are some early flowers sprouting during April's showers! One of the offerings in the CustomDogJacket Etsy shop is this floral pattern meant for a teensy pooch. Even though North doesn't fall into that group, they'll design a custom fitted jacket for any size or shape of pet in the fabric of your choosing ($25 and up). For something this cute, I hope it keeps raining a little bit longer!
If you'd rather go for a premade alternative, there are a bunch of budding raincoats blooming up as well — see my floral finds in the widget below!
It's time to suit up for Spring! We're not talking about coats and ties for the junior set, but raincoats and umbrellas that will keep lil ones safe from the elements as April's notorious showers descend upon us. As much as mama would like to hunker down and spend her rainy days curled up in bed with a good book, some hot tea, and a cozy blanket, tots just never seem to find the appeal of such a quiet day.
Before they run off to find mud pies and puddles that just invite them to jump right in, be sure to outfit them in the proper gear to keep them clean and dry. From traditional mackintoshes that mimic mom's trendy trenches to character-themed slickers, wee rain dancers will be begging to dress up regardless of the weather outside. Check out some of our favorites below.
Desperately grasping a broken umbrella is one of the worst feelings I can think of . . . as is the accompanying sogginess. I've definitely been caught out in the rain and slammed the wire-jutting contraption into the trash as I slosh to work.Well, no more. See these adorable raincoats? They're made from recycled umbrellas! All jackets ($10 and up) are completely customizable – hood, no hood, felt, vintage, hand-picked linings, etc. – for your lucky, weather-resisting pup. Created by product designer Taryn Zychal, her two pugs serve as models but designs can come in sizes from XS to XXL.
I already know what I'm doing next time I break an umbrella and, if this sounds like something you'd like to support, even if you don't have a dressed-up dog, she's currently offering a great plan:
To get the best variety of broken umbrellas, I am currently reimbursing shipping costs to anyone who would like to send me their broken umbrellas, so it will literally cost them nothing to ship it to me. I want to collect broken umbrellas from all over the world so hopefully people will dig the idea and start sending them my way!
Her online store, Recycling Zychal, is up now and she'll continue to add more fabrics as they come in from all of you. As if you needed yet another reason: a portion of all sales go towards the Humane Society of the United States so you won't leave the animals high and dry . . . just dry.
