The Independent Online
Swinging in a raincoat, in silver, white or pink. With this season's Capri pants and mini dresses, a shabby old Burberry just won't do

Oasis £84.99 This mac wins hands down for shape and proportion, and is wrapped up with good buttons and a well accessorised belt. The white fabric is amazing, somewhere between paper and pvc. For space-age chicks everywhere. Available from Oasis, 292 Regent Street, London W1, 96 Union Street, Glasgow and branches nationwide. Enquiries: 0171-377 5335

Prada £345 With the recent opening of the UK's first Prada shop, you too can now wear the supermodels' favourite label. The jacket is beautifully constructed, and a good shape: the only problem is the price. Available from Joseph, 77 Fulham Road, London SW3 and Prada, 44-45 Sloane Street, London SW1

Whistles £195 This mac is a good shape that can be belted in or left to hang loose. The 100 per cent silk fabric,in silver or safe old black, is surprisingly practical. Available from Whistles, St Christopher's Place, London W1 and branches, enquiries on 0171-487 4484

French Connection £80 In pinky lilac, or bluey green, this mac is cropped to an unusual length, but that's part of its charm. From French Connection, 249 Regent Street, London W1, 6, Market Street, Manchester M1 and branches nationwide. Enquiries on 0171-580 2507

Max & Co £160 The shape is good, but with a little too much fabric in the sleeves. This is a grown-up look and very practical. From the new, good-value diffusion range at Maxmara. Exclusive to Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge, London SW3
