Finally, Spring has sprung. Clouds have cleared, daffodils have bloomed and evenings have finally brightened up. Admittedly, we’re not quite there on the temperature front but we’ll take what we can get. Plus, spring jackets bring the most fun with them and we all know a good coat is the easiest way to upgrade your style for the season ahead. This season we’ve got classic trench coats, vinyl versions, investment pieces and for the brave, the neon approach. As for the Burberry classic? Timeless.
Trench coats are one of the most versatile items you can have in your wardrobe. Great for a casual approach with jeans or to smarten up with your workwear and hey, Inspector Gadget is as good a fashion icon as anyone these days. On a practicality level, name another trend that will keep you dry from head-to-toe (knees) and sustain your stylish reputation season after season.
Here’s the thing, when it comes to finding the right trench coat, you’ve got to play the long game. They’re an investment piece but you should know finding ‘the one’ takes patience and just when you’ve found the right one, be prepared for them to play hard to get. But try not to lose faith, good things come to those who wait.
