Urban Outfitters: Granny Chic
Chances are you've seen one (or a hundred) of these stashed away in your grandma's house and you even have the pleasure of it being used on a rainy day (and lets face it, England has a fair few of those!). But no longer is this fashion statement saved for OAP's, the weather rain hood is making an entrance on the high street for ladies of all ages.
Take these funky designs from Urban Outfitters - bold, bright and the obvious of keeping your hair dry. And even better, UO are currently holding a sale (with up to 75% off!) leaving each item a steal at £3.00.
Would I buy one? Honestly, probably not. Although I like to keep my hair dry, my umbrella does the job fine. I don't think I have the edginess to pull off this trend successfully and I will always have the image of my nanna donning one of these for a trip to town and for me, that's where there'll stay.
But while the weather hoods may be off my menu, the head scarf is essential if ever driving a convertible, but beware of letting it slip a la Bridget Jones or risk the 'stuck my hair in the electric socket' look.
