Fashion Advice:  Budget Friendly Rain Coats

Dear Budget Fashionista,

I’m going to visit my family in the UK during Christmas time. It rains there a lot, and I was wondering where I could find an affordable raincoat in the US (Do they even still sell raincoats in the US?)

Dear Rainy Expat-

Although it’s a bit difficult to find the traditional, plastic/rubber raincoats of our youth, you can find several waterproof, “all weather coat”,  trench style coats at your local off priced department store. Check out Marshalls, Tj Maxx, Ross and the outlets Off Fifth and Last Call, for great deals on all weather coats from Drizzle, Gallery, Anne Klein, and London Fog.  Also shop online at stores like,, and Eddie Bauer. Plan to pay between $30 to $50 for a stylish coat at one of these stores.
