Adding a little flair to your rainwear doesn't mean dressing like Paddington Bear (fashion icon though he may be). Pull the drawstring tight to create dramatic ruffles at the scalloped-lace hemline, or wear the satin-lined coat uncinched for a more casual look—either way, this is our favorite take on Seattle formal.

Maybe the underprepared tourists who buy single-use ponchos to protect themselves from early summer rain are onto something—at least in the silhouette department.
