Ok, ok…so we know the weather over the last few weeks has been unusually amazing for this time of year. But with it being Great Britain and all, it’s better to always be prepared for those sudden downpours, right?
Because if we know anything as Brits, it’s that you can’t count on the weather to be consistent. Like EVER. You can bet your bottom dollar that as soon as you pop those sunglasses on and fire up the barbecue, the heavens will open and your day will be a wash-out. Great.
Obviously, getting caught short in a Spring shower is not the look we are going for, especially when we are unprepared! But don’t fret Ladies and Gents, because here at Teddy Edward we know exactly how to keep you dry at any time of the year.
So, don’t let those potential April showers put a dampener on your style - check out our top rain-proof essentials below!
Under my umbrella, ella, ella
Let us start with an obvious choice but one that a true Brit should never be seen dead without – the humble umbrella!
It’s a well-known fact that when you live in Great Britain, you are never too far away from your nearest umbrella. So, you may as well make your umbrella of choice a chic and luxurious number, yes?
Made in the East End of London at one of the oldest established umbrella makers in the country, these high-end umbrellas ooze British charm teamed with long lasting, rainproof qualities.
Mary and Winston each feature an elegant leather crook handle, a chic navy polyester canopy and are finished off with our signature Teddy Edward label to fasten.
Best of all, both come with a spring-loaded opening mechanism meaning they are easy up, easy down at the touch of a button when the rain starts to roll in.
Mary and Winston are also the perfect height to be used as a walking stick when the weather is nice, so you can stroll around looking stylish come rain or shine!
Get your coat…
Caught short without an umbrella? With our selection of showerproof coats, it doesn’t matter!
First up, why not consider tackling the British weather in unparalleled style with our timeless trench coat, Amelia? We have taken an outerwear classic and revved it up a notch to bring you a piece that delivers both elegance and everyday practicality in one. Crafted from showerproof twill, not only will you look super glam in Amelia, but you will stay dry if (or should we say, when!) the weather takes a turn for the worse.
Chaps, if you love the great outdoors but dread the thought of getting soaked, then check out Harry, our thermal quilted coat. This classic British number is crafted from unique moleskin fabric meaning it is luxuriously soft and warm. But the best bit? It’s showerproof! Harry also boasts a large collar and zip fastening to give you extra protection from the elements whether you face a light drizzle or a complete washout.
This last coat is another one for you, girls! If you want to get a bit down and dirty in the countryside and a chic trench coat like Amelia just won’t cut it, why not choose Olivia? Our best-selling velvet quilted thermal coat is showerproof, so not only will it keep you toasty and warm, but you are fully protected from the rain too. And don’t worry about the beautifully coiffed hair you spent hours doing this morning - Olivia comes with a detachable hood. Winner!
The changeable British weather can leave you facing a random downpour followed by glorious sunshine before you’ve even made it to the end of the road. But what if you could wear something that would see you ready for both?
The gilet is without doubt the epitome of British country fashion, and we think it could be the answer to your outfit dilemmas come rain or shine!
Gents, why not weather the storm with Jack? Tailored from a unique stretch moleskin fabric, this luxury gilet is showerproof meaning you are protected from the rain no matter what. Wear Jack over your favourite coat or layered underneath to shield yourself from the elements in classic country style.
For the Ladies we have our velvet quilted gilet, Sophia. Like Jack, Sophia is showerproof meaning not only can you hit the great outdoors in comfort and style but stay dry all day too. Sophia is crafted from soft and breathable velvet and features a sizeable collar and zip fastening for extra protection when it starts raining cats and dogs.
A gilet is both a luxurious and practical addition to your wardrobe, helping you deal with downpours in style wherever your hectic life might take you.
Whichever Teddy Edward British-made classic you choose to protect you from the inclement April weather, we guarantee you are going to fall in love with these trendy yet practical additions to your Spring wardrobe!
