A raincoat with a hood for petites is a must for any petite woman living in a rainy climate, however, it should also be considered a clothing essential for everyone.

But raincoats offer so much more than just functionality. They are also timeless and incredibly stylish!
Petite Rain Jackets
A raincoat with a hood is a great investment since you want to keep your head just as warm and dry as the rest of the body. However, for style purposes, you can also find rain jackets that don’t come with a hood or that instead come with an attachable hood, giving you the best of both worlds. Alternatively, you could have a rain jacket layered over a women’s petite pullover sweater. Raincoats come in all different colors and prints. Some are designed in neutral tones like black or gray. Having these simple, traditional colors allows you to wear the raincoats with any outfit and it will match the rest of your clothing. If you stick to neutral tones, you can get matching raincoats for the rest of your family, like a men’s rain jacket or a kids’ raincoat in black or navy blue. If you like the idea of wearing bright, playful colors on a dreary, gray, rainy day, consider colors like yellow, pink, green, or purple. They would go fabulously with a pair of rain boots in a matching color.
Remember to consider what you might wear underneath the raincoat. Even a petite size should be roomy enough to comfortably wear a thicker layer or two underneath it. Also consider other style features that might be important to you, such as pockets, a button-up or zip-up front, or whether you like the look of a wraparound waist with a belt.
