    I have a dead bird Squamish and love it.
    Packs into pocket, ultralight, holds up in most storms long enough. I put it in a fannypack on inclimate travel days and you dont even know its there.

    I think I'd be fine with that, I much prefer a jacket but I'd appreciate any suggestions.

    Any recommendations for fashion-centric technical outerwear for women, other than select arc'teryx jackets?

    The female designer who was in charge of ACRNM's women's line joined Nike. She had an internal collab (Nike x Schneider) that you can still find a lot of on eBay for pretty cheap.
    Lululemon, Y-3/Y-3 Sport, NikeLab/Nike NSW/et.al., Adidas x Stella McCartney, vintage Prada Sport are other options you can start with.

    I've said this 10E6 times but look into the Veilance Galvanic. If you're looking for an overcoat, OAMC made some cool one a couple years ago

    Ok guys here it goes.

    I picked up this parka:
    ADIDAS CONSORTIUM ATHLEISURE PACK 2 IN 1 PARKA

    I walked through a lot of rain and did not get wet at all in fact was a bit hot. The one thing i really ,liked about this parka was no weird big pockets on the front. I did like isaora as well but front pockets killed it for me.

    My response in general is wear whatever you want and just make sure its isn't super awkward.

    In reality i think CM stuff works well with the below more so than it does with the jacket i posted above. I imagine things a bit more fitted and toned down for CM but thats about it. With sw&d i think drapy dark etc looks cooler. Then again no one is stopping you form wearing a bit more dressy gear with the jacket in spoiler. Just my 2c, hope that helps :)

    Could probably go full Uniqlo/Uniqlo U with one of their blocktech outers over the top. Maybe some black Stan Smiths or other simple sneaker/sneakerboot for the footwear.
