Princess Catherine is always inspiring us with her attainable day-to-day style, and this waxy outdoor raincoat is the perfect wardrobe staple - especially when the weather is this gloomy. Luckily, the coat is on sale, too!

Waterproof rain jackets are notoriously some of the hardest fashion items to purchase, seeing as it's honestly sort of hard to make a raincoat look chic. They're always a little too bulky, they're never the right color, and honestly, they're just a huge inconvenience to our outfits, usually. 

Princess Catherine, though, has of course cracked the code on how to find a raincoat that is both effective and chic (how does she do it!), and luckily for us, that very jacket is on sale right now.

In the photo above, Kate is on royal engagement with Prince William in Victoria, Canada as part of a royal tour - and on this particular day, the weather was not being kind to the royals. Thus, Kate broke out her trusty rain jacket from Troy London - a jacket that she has worn on a variety of occasions, proving that this parka coat style remains a favorite in her wardrobe. 

On another occasion, while visiting a farm, Kate wore this army green rain jacket with a navy blue sweater and some matching army green pants, as opposed to the black jeans and white sneakers she sported for her first outing with the Troy London parka.

The Princess also owns this jacket from Troy London in navy blue, making it a true staple for her wardrobe. When she styled the navy blue version of the raincoat, she similarly paired it with some black pants, as well as some black riding boots for a day spent out in the countryside.

As worn by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, this lightweight coat is made from 100% cotton milled in England with a dry wax finish.  A black sports-luxe lining provides fully waterproof protection and brings an urban appeal to this casual but elegant coat.

Troy London recommends sizing up if you are between sizes in this coat.

Why does the Princess love this jacket so much? With the cinched waistline, the deep pockets, and the flattering cut and silhouette, what's not to love? Not to mention, the jacket (which is on sale right now) has a waxy, waterproof finish, keeping you dry on even the wettest of days.
