Mia Melon’s Weatherproof Cotton and Wool Is The Answer To Fall Rainstorms
Mia Melon makes a plethora of all-weather jackets and coats,
Whitney jacket is the answer to my soggy problems.
It might seem dramatic saying that a rain jacket could change
my life, but
this isn’t just any rain jacket (okay, I’m a little
dramatic). In the past, the rain coats I owned were made for
thunderstorms in the summer, thrown over work clothes and
packed into tote bags.
They were lightweight and if I wanted to wear them in the 40
degree rain that New York gets in fall, I had to layer up (even
if that meant sweating by the time I get to work). The heavier,
lined ones I actually needed were either way out of my
budget and looked like a pair of galoshes melted down into the
shape of a jacket, or they were utilitarian and outdoorsy,
which wasn’t what I was aiming for.
The Whitney jacket is not only 100% waterproof cotton, it’s
also fleece lined. It’s the perfect weight for a
sub-50 degree day and it doesn’t look like you threw on one of
those free ponchos you get on tour buses. I got so many
compliments on this jacket that my friend had me text her the
name of it so she could get one too.
Unlike a lot of rain jackets, the
Whitney doesn’t cinch at the waist, allowing you room to
easily layer underneath it. This is now my official
transitional outerwear for the days between
awkwardly-humid-end-of-summer rain to
