By Gabi Meyers | Last Updated: Aug 1 2016

To that point, it’s important that you have the appropriate outerwear, so you’re not soaking through your denim jacket in an abrupt rainstorm, and you’re not sweating through your puffer coat on a surprise 72 degree day. Enter the mac jacket – waterproof, and tidy enough to wear over a suit.
