Oscar de la Renta
At Oscar de la Renta, bright pink stole the spotlight, in the form of a sporty Barbie pink topper worn over a printed sheer frock. Meanwhile, the addition of an oversized hoop earring and pointed toe heels helps to bring a final accessorizing touch to the outfit. If you want to keep your raincoat looking stylish and feminine, try wearing a neon waterproof jacket over a little patterned dress this spring.
Calvin Klein brought colour to the catwalk in the form of a calf-length bright blue raincoat which featured white zipper accents. Paired with contrasting orange heels, the outfit certainly captured the cheery, eye-catching colour palette of Spring 2018.
At Valentino, the aesthetic was structured yet feminine, with a focus on pale pastels. This soft lavender and pink coat was styled with a loose blush top and a studded violet clutch. Meanwhile, the girlish pink suede heels are detailed with bows, and pick up on the understated tones of the coat.
