Rain Jackets Under $50 You Need This April

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Hofstra chapter.

We all know spring is here and the flowers are ready to bloom, but first we need a little rain. The rain is not going to be around forever, so why should we spend an arm and a leg on our outerwear? April showers bring May flowers and you need a sturdy rain coat to brave the storm, so here are some affordable options for stylish rain coats under that keep your budget under $50. 

PU Coated Hooded Rain Mac

A longline raincoat with plastic material offers a basic but edgy look and will always be in style. This raincoat in particular features fun striped strings that allow you to adjust the hood, supersized pockets that maximize storage space and a padded interior that keeps you comfy during the rainy season. This coat can be found on BooHoo.com in yellow and navy blue and is currently on sale for only $20 (regularly priced at $50).

Amazon is selling this unique poncho with a myriad of patterns and color combinations for $21.98, a great deal if I do say so myself.
