Depending on what destination you’re headed to, waterproof outerwear might just be a must (ahem, London). Not to mention spring is just around the corner, despite what it may look like outside.

We are super excited to have discovered Trout Rainwear, the most chic, yet also ultra-practical, rainwear we’ve ever seen. Designed and made in Canada, their outwear is made from high-quality Italian fabric and is 100% waterproof. One of the stand-out pieces in their Spring/Summer 2014 Collection is the Bonneville Blazer ($730). At a quick glance it looks like a 3-button blazer, but it actually has a hidden hood in the collar. Other details we love about this jacket is the Liberty of London splash print lining, functional cuff openings and two discreet front pockets.

We love this piece because you’ll be completely ready if the weather changes at the drop of a hat and even if the sun stays out during your trip, this blazer is chic enough to wear on its own.

Available online at and select Holt Renfrew stores across Canada.
