If the old adage is true, then the recent showers we've experienced in the Northeastern states is a sign of much more rainfall to come next month. While there might be some May flowers on the other side of those April showers, we first have to endure the downpour — preferably with a sense of style still intact. The answer to my soaked prayers was recently found in an Everlane raincoat, a brand approved time and again by the likes of Meghan Markle and Katie Holmes.

The Everlane ReNew Anorak was sent to me just a day before New York City experienced a bout of rain and, as a dog mom, it wasn't weather that I could avoid. I figured it was the perfect afternoon to don my new raincoat and see what all the fuss was about (it has dozens of five-star ratings). After spending about 30 minutes outside watching my pup jump over puddles, I realized I was a happy combination of warm and dry.

I'm not someone who loves oversized styling, but the slightly boxy frame of this coat is far from baggy- or disheveled-looking. Since it was a colder day, I appreciated that I had room under the coat to wear a hoodie over a long-sleeve shirt; Everlane's sizing details suggest choosing one size down for a more fitted option, but I'm glad my coat is my regular size for the sake of layering. I didn't feel like my layers were suffocating, and that's also thanks to the coat's lack of a lining that keeps it feeling light as a feather — which will come in handy later this season when temperatures (finally) start to rise. Plus, there's a built-in drawstring around the waist, just in case I felt like cinching it in.

The coat comes in four colors and sizes XXS to XL. I received mine in the bay leaf color — it's a lovely, spring-y green that will add a pop of color to my very black New York City wardrobe, while existing as a neutral tone that will pair easily with almost anything. I also appreciate that the coat is sustainably made entirely out of recycled materials.

Shoppers agree that the coat is stylish and the fit is flattering on a number of shapes. One reviewer who purchased the coat in a size L simply said, "this coat is fabulous," while another who selected an XXS said that the material was a bit "thinner than expected" but that "the design and fit more than make up for it." And a third shopper who went with a M added, the coat "fits and feels great!"
