Clear Vinyl Capelet Raincoats for Women by Raoul

Pieces from the decidedly mod-themed Raoul Resort 2012 collection have just arrived at Shopbop, and one of them is this clear capelet.

Raoul Clear Vinyl Capelet Raincoat, $355.00

Now, I was sure I wouldn’t wear this piece when I first laid eyes on it. It looked too costume-y, and I’m not a fan of plastic clothes in the first place.

But as I looked at it longer, I started to see more of its appeal. It won’t ruin your outfit because, well, it’s see-through. It’s in a cute and trendy capelet style. It’s got that white leather trim that prevents it from looking like there’s a floating plastic bag around your body. And it fully functions as a rain coat keeping the rain out.

Now that I’ve decided I like it, I see that my realization has come too late because there’s only a size 34 left as of writing. Girls who are quicker at spotting trends beat me to this capelet and had the money ready, too — this clear vinyl rain capelet is $335, which is not a price for something you just buy on impulse.

I can only hope that Shopbop restocks this clear capelet soon and that Raoul (or some other brand) designs clear raincoats in these styles.

A  trompe l’oeil design or a drawn-on graphic print would look awesome on a clear raincoat, don’t you think?

If you’re up for wearing a clear raincoat, love the Raoul clear capelet, and are a size 34, you can shop for it at Shopbop.
