I don’t think I have ever owned a raincoat—until now. I guess I have never really needed one or I thought they were kind of excessive. I usually go for a cropped moto or leather jacket when it’s raining, and then I transition to a winter coat because here in Chicago, we barely have an actual fall season.
However, I am excited that I have a raincoat this year, and it’s very chic to say the least. This We Hound Love Houndstooth Coat is unlike any kind of coat I’ve ever seen, and I had to get my hands on it. What makes this coat perfect for rainy days is the coated material it’s made of, which gives it a shiny look and also makes it sort of water repellent. I could wear the trench with anything this season, but on this day, I paired it with this beautiful Phoebe Pleated Midi Dress. I love this dress because it’s something that will stay in my closet for years because its classic and versatile.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2X in both the Phoebe Pleated Midi Dress and the We Hound Love Houndstooth Coat, which is my usual size, but I think both of these garments have slight fit issues. First, let’s start with the dress. The dress is a little tight, and unfortunately because it fits kind of snug, the pleats aren’t very apparent. If I could do it over again, I would order a 3X.
