Now that the weather is getting cooler, the best trench coats are the perfect items to layer over your dresses, to keep you warm until it’s time to transition to a proper winter coat.
When it comes to outerwear, they’re one of those classic investments that any woman should own – and if you don’t already, then you’re in for a treat because this season brings you some of the chicest styles I’ve seen in a long time.
There is something to suit everyone, whether you’re after a trend-led trench coat or something a little more timeless.
If it’s the latter you’re after, go for a tan, cream or beige shade. I’m loving the neutrals trend, which dictates layering different separates in muted shades. An 80s-style butter yellow coat will look beautiful over a white linen suit – try Stand Studio’s vegan leather trench for this.
That said, you can never go wrong with a tailored beige or navy trench, which Max Mara and Burberry excel at.
For those more fashion-forward souls, try adding a pop of colour to your outfit. Bright pinks and reds are everywhere right now, though royal blue and apple green work as well. The key is to wear it with confidence and to not be afraid to mix and match different colours.
Still not sold? Trench coats are well-known for being one of the most flattering styles of outerwear. By simply fastening the belt, anyone can have an hourglass silhouette. Plus, while it can take a while to find the best trench for you, once you have, you’ll never part with it, re-wearing it season after season.
This to me, means it’s the perfect investment piece. Scroll down to shop the best trench coats that will suit any shape, style or budget.
