$775

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.
