It’s official, summer is over. There’s now a distinct nip in the air, the evenings are darker and there’s rain. A lot of rain. But, we’re not complaining because we’ve just taken stock of our new rain gear and it’s making the inclement weather a whole lot more bearable. Here’s the what we’re loving from the haul:

Igor Splash Nautico Wellies

Igor Splash Nautico Wellies (£23).

Adding to our existing collection of igor wellies, the new Splash Nautico boots have a little bit of a retro, fisherman feel to them. A cut above your average welly, these boots are made for walking thanks to their extra comfy sponge insoles, meaning no sore damp toes here. Grab them in three classic colours; red, navy and our fave - yellow!

Gosoaky Unisex Cape

Gosoaky Unisex Cape, £45.

We’ve added 2 new colourful geometric designs to our collection of GOSOAKY rain capes and we’re pretty gutted that they don’t come in adult sizes too. These sell-out capes tick all the boxes in terms of looking good, but also being a super practical investment. Perfect for kids that want to run around, but get hot in whatever you put them in, these breathable capes let them be free and also grow with them. The hard part is picking which colour to go for.

Grass & Air Kids Colour-Revealing Wellies, (£18).

Grass & Air offer shorter length waterproof boots that are great for little ones who are less stable on their feet. They’re super-easy to pull on and off and the ankle length design makes them ideal for crisp, damp days. And let's not forget that they change colour as they get wet... we like to think of that as a deal breaker.

Packasuit waterproof all-in-one

Packasuit waterproof all-in-one (£16).

The ultimate parenting must-have, we’ve now added few new colours to our collection of rainproof all-in-ones from Hippychick. Without any bulky lining, these lightweight suits pop over their clothes and save them from getting wet, muddy and cold all in one go. It means, less outfit changes and less washing - win! They’re selling out fast, so grab one quick.

So that’s our run through of our new wet weather gear, you can shop the full collection here.
