Here in Vancouver, rain is a recurring theme, particularly in winter. It’s not referred to as “Raincouver” for nothing, after all, and this is the time of year when pretty much everyone has their rain gear within arms reach at all times. From jackets and boots to umbrellas and bags, weatherproof wear is a hot topic around here. We identified a need on the west coast and beyond for ladies weatherproof jacket that could provide effective protection from the elements while still offering impeccable style, and have built our brand on that.
The general consensus that we heard and were inspired by when creating Mia Melon was that stylish rain jackets, boots, etc., seemed to be virtually nonexistent, or at the very least, difficult to find. Sure, you could easily snap up a cool jean jacket or a gorgeous winter coat, but ladies rain jackets seemed to be, for the most part, unremarkable by design.
Our mission? To offer weatherproof jackets (and more) that keep you warm, dry and ready for anything while at the same time slaying the fashion game. In our outerwear, you will find attention to fine details, a penchant for interesting garment architecture, and classy styles and colours to put an immediate end to your frumpy rain jacket woes.
Stay warm and dry, and look incredible with these weatherproof essentials that compromise neither functionality nor style!
Mia Melon Everglades Rain Style Jacket
Every single one of Mia Melon’s ladies weatherproof jackets are gorgeous, but this one is definitely a fan favorite. It’s fashionable enough to wear to a formal occasion yet can be made more casual by removing the belt and wearing with skinny jeans or leggings. The neck is a stellar feature- wear the collar up to show the amazing geometric shape, or down, thanks to the convenient button closure. The hood is removable, which is an awesome feature, and this beautiful weatherproof jacket comes in three colours to suit a wide variety of skin tones. Made with Mia Melon’s cotton herringbone outer fabric and waterproof/windproof breathable membrane, the Everglades Rain Style jacket is the epitome of a ladies weatherproof jacket that keeps you cozy and bone dry while catching everyone’s eye in an instant.

Umbrella Haven Fulton Birdcage Umbrella
The minimalistic approach is to die for! Sleek and modern with a nod to 1960’s mod, this umbrella is simple and sophisticated. Mostly clear, which allows the raindrops to be seen (an effect I find enchanting) with black trim, this is a bold fashion statement. Who says umbrellas can’t be cool?
Now, imagine if you will, stepping out in Mia Melon’s Everglades Rain Style Jacket, the high gloss boots and that edgy umbrella. Have you changed your mind on rain gear not being stylish yet?
Hands up if you’re now wishing for rain! We know we are.
