Trench coats are one of the most classic fashion pieces you can own. They’re timeless, extremely versatile and are always ‘in’ fashion. They are also fabulous transeasonal items to have in your wardrobe – this is especially essential now, as the weather jumps back and forth from warm to cold, sunny to rainy, and vice versa.
Burberry are of course the go-to label for the classic, traditional trench, but it seems other brands are coming out of the woodwork and upping their trench game this season.
We’re seeing a twist on the classic. With trenches coming in an array of colours and patterns, from blush, to khaki, to gingham; a mix of textures, from silk, to denim, to vinyl and suede; a variety of styles, with peplum detailing, balloon sleeves and pops of lace; and finally, a range of hardware detailing, buckles, belts and buttons, from metal, to tortoiseshell, to fabric.
There’s a trench out there for everyone at the moment, so I promise you, you won’t have a hard time finding one that’ll suit your style or the look you’re wanting to achieve.
My black trench has been a recent addition to my wardrobe and I’ve worn it nearly everyday. It goes with everything from my ‘going-out’ outfits, to my casual looks, to my ‘fashion-y’ styles.
Now I have a trench in my life, I realise how useful they actually are, and I wonder how I lived without one… dramatic I know! I’m now dreaming of owning a range in every style and colour. I’m especially loving the trenches with the big sleeves. Oh and to feed my statement-loving self, a vinyl one would do me just fine too, and yes I would dare to wear one!
