In case the constant weather warnings and relentless downpours haven’t delivered the message: January has arrived. Whilst the season is synonymous with blustery forecasts and drizzly days, it is not without its more subtle delights. Frequent showers bring out the inimitable, earthy fragrances of nature whilst restoring parched fields to their vibrant green glory. Whilst fallen leaves reveal bony trees, their gothic silhouettes are something to behold in themselves.

With fewer hours of available sunlight, I’m feeling more and more compelled to spend the rare few in the comfort of the outdoors, but aforementioned drizzles frequently get in my way. However, newly inspired by Rachel Stevens, I think I’ve finally stumbled across the wet-weather solution that marries functionality with fashion to see me through my winter walks in style.

On Rachel Stevens: Free People Cori Waxed Jacket (£268). On a nature-filled winter walk, Rachel Steves relied upon a classic (dare I say old?) wet-weather saviour, her waxed khaki jacket. For its water-repelling qualities, a waxed jacket is the January styling solution that the fashion set have suddenly started wearing. Styling the countryside must-have, Stevens paired her oversized coat with blue jeans and chunky black boots. Going for stylish over windswept, the former singer completed her outfit with a chic pair of shades and neatly styled hair. It’s not only Stevens that has me considering this investment—all around I’m noticing influencers swap their raincoats for the heritage waxed style this winter.

For a country-ready outfit that’s equal parts cosy and stylish, these oversized jackets are the perfect place to start. Complete your wet-weather look with a warm beanie and cashmere scarf, and don’t forget to pack some sensible shoes.
