Cool Rain Coats

terra feature

Weather happens. Frumpy raincoats don't have to. Since we know a mom often has her hands full, we love rain gear with ample coverage. Last fall year at our fashion appointments here in NYC we stumbled upon

Terra NYC


These chic see-through coats give you full rain protection without the baggy look. One of the founders, Marie Saeki, is a business friend who saw a niche and went for it. As a marketing pro, she knows how to design products women will want. As a cyclist, she knows that rain gear has to perform. Let it pour. All Terra New York rainwear products look great and are 100% water proof, using heat sealed technic for the seams to stop water.

Here are a few of our favorites from the line:


Nolita Nude ($240)

The rain hear has heat sealed seams to not let a drop of water in! Note: Clean with a sponge and mild soap, to wrinkle out hang on hanger in a warm room (bathtub for example). I just love the cape style it's so Audrey Hepburn chic. Though I do wonder if the water would drip on my pants in this style.


Lower East Side($285)

The clothes are vegan and biodegradeable--the perfect ethical fashion to keep you dry. The brand was created in 2009 after Creative Director Yurika Nakazono, a bicycle-loving New Yorker, realized there was a gaping hole in her wardrobe for functional rain-gear that met her fashion standards. The raincoats are award-winning and let's just say it, super chic.

For the ultimate in cool rain gear, add some Hunter boots and head out into the storms. I say there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing for the weather. Stock your closet with the right gear and nothing can stop you.
