Bella Hadid Just Proved That Rubbery Yellow Raincoats Are Still in
What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think about a yellow raincoat? For me, it's Madeline and Curious George, or any playful children's caricature, really. But now, I can add "supermodels" to my list, because Bella Hadid just wore a rubbery yellow raincoat that looks like it popped right out of a kid's book.
While in Rome with her boyfriend Mark Kalman this week, the model wore a bright yellow coat with a pair of AirPods Max (which are the new Sarah Jessica Parker-approved "it" accessory, if you haven't heard), black trousers, a quilted Chanel bag, and plaid canvas sneakers. Despite being pretty dressed-down, Hadid still managed to make the oversized raincoat look quite stylish, which personally made me question why I don't have one.
Ironically, the coat could actually be considered more controversial than fashionable. The style feels a bit outdated; that vibrant yellow shade isn't the easiest to pull off if you're not a kid, and the thick, rubberized material isn't exactly… chic. But Hadid has proven that it is in fact still cool to wear a yellow raincoat, and it seems like the internet agrees. We don't know what brand her exact coat is, but the general style isn't that easy to find at the moment; J. Crew's rubbery jacket is sold out, and Free People's yellow raincoats from Rains and Hunter are all but gone. All things considered, it looks like it's already a hot buy this spring.
If Hadid has lured you in, Amazon has plenty of rubbery-looking yellow coats. They may not be as thick or oversized as the model's, but they do get the aesthetic down. Under-the-radar brand Fahysee nailed the look and offers three different yellow jacket styles (among other colors). You can also opt for a darker yellow, fishtail-style Levi's raincoat that's on sale, or this shorter style from Helly Hansen, which is known for its sturdy waterproof jackets.
