The Trench Coat

The Trench Coat is an iconic statement of classic British style that we never seem to fall out of love with and why would we when it is so versatile. Probably the most irresistible characteristic of the Trench Coat is that it suits every body shape. Rather than drowning your curves, the tie detail cinches in at the waist to create an hourglass figure even over layers.  By simply throwing it on over any outfit, a trench coat gives your looks an instant dose of chic from Autumn right through until Spring making it an investment worth making.

Whilst most of us would dream of investing in a designer Trench coat to see us through many an April Shower, a Burberry will set you back north of one thousand pounds.  A sumptuous investment that is arguably these days not required due to the quality and design of Trench coats available for a fraction of the cost on the high street.  In fact, you can most certainly pick up a high calibre Trench coat for well under £100.

The key to a good quality Trench is all about the heritage details.  A double breasted front with quality buttons, belted cuffs, epaulettes, gun flaps and quality lining all add up to a Burberry dupe-worthy trench.  The length of a Trench is all about preference but pear shapes should opt for longer lengths and even petites can appear taller with longer calf length styles.

The Trench coat is a classic for all seasons and occasions.  It can be worn belted for a feminine fit or open for a relaxed look.  A Trench coat can be teamed with heels and dresses for the evening or with clean white trainers and denim for daytime chic.  The classic camel or beige is the traditional Trench colour, but navy or khaki are popular alternatives.

The Trench coat is a timeless investment for every wardrobe and does not need to break the bank.  Shop this Trench coat for under £100 and all of the pieces in my look using the links.
