You want to invest in a style trend that will see you through the whole season and beyond, right? At the same time, transitioning from hot summer days to the crisper temperatures of autumn and winter can present a number of wardrobe challenges. Enter, the trusty trench coat.
A classic for good reason, the trench coat is stylish and versatile. With endless options in the way of colour, texture, length and fit. There’s a trench to suit all tastes.
Whether you’re a fan of the traditional trench or prefer new takes on this enduring style, the trench coat is a must-have for conquering Autumn.
Cool & Classic
So much more than a fleeting style trend, the trench is an outer wear staple. Investing in a decent trench coat is one of the best calls you can make when building your capsule wardrobe. You can always fall back on the ease, elegance and versatility of a classic trench in colours like khaki, camel and tan. If those don’t float your boat, navy, black or ivory trench coats also maintain that classic, instant-sophistication element.
These classic colours tend to pair incredibly well with an eye-catching print style trend such as polka dots and Breton stripes, as well as block colours with shinier finishes or interesting textures.
Choosing a trench coat with small but interesting details is a great idea if your core wardrobe is pared back and print free and you’re hoping to diversify your look. Simple trim detailing or less traditional fabrics is an excellent way to experiment a little with an otherwise classic piece.
If you’re looking to make a statement all season long, the trench won’t disappoint. Patent leather varieties offer an edgier, rock n roll vibe. For those hoping to avoid being the butt of any Matrix jokes, there are loads of bright, colourful patent trench coats on the market.
The best part about this essential autumn style trend is that it’s not just for autumn – layering under trench coats is the perfect way to ease in and out of weather extremes.
