One of the things I often suggest to clients when we go on a personal shopping trip is a raincoat. They haven't necessarily requested we look for one, but more often than not, they're open to the idea and realise that it would be really useful to have in their wardrobes, perhaps as a smarter alternative to a more casual cagoule style.

Part of looking stylish is dressing appropriately for the occasion, and more often than not that includes factoring in the weather. There’s nothing more satisfying than the smug feeling you get when you know you’ve nailed it - you’re standing up to the elements but you’ve managed to look good too!

Firstly, here's a checklist of things to look for in a snowboarding jacket:
