Yellow is the classic color for rain coats. Perhaps this is because it is easy to see, even when it is pouring rain. Whatever the reason, the yellow raincoat is iconic and never out of fashion. These come in different lengths, from three-quarter length to long trench coat-like models that go down to the ankle. The idea of this latter style is not just a question of fashion. They are meant to protect your clothes from the rain from top to bottom.
Here’s a model I find very cute:

Oddly, some coats that are sold as raincoats absorb water. This is why you should look for a raincoat that is made with a rubber or plastic-like material. These are sometimes called slickers because of their slick surface. They are often yellow, perhaps because it is a color that is very visible, even in bad weather.
