When it comes to wardrobe staples, you won’t find a better investment than the humble trench coat.
Perfect for the trans-seasonal weather, it instantly pulls together any outfit and is timeless enough in style to last a lifetime. That said, for spring/summer 22, the classic piece of outerwear has been re-imagined by several designers and brands. Neutral shades of beige give way to more earthy tones of burnt orange and khaki.
Those of you in love with colour will be enamoured with the pastel shades of yellow, pink and blue which will look great layered over a linen suit or jeans and a t-shirt. For a bolder approach, try that signature pop of colour that the likes of Roksanda and Oscar de la Renta do so well – fuschia and apple green are the stars of the show right now.
If you’re more of a minimalist at heart through, don’t worry, because you’ll never go wrong with a well-tailored camel or navy trench coat. You can depart from your comfort zone a little by playing around with textures: suede, leather and linen all feature heavily this season. Without further ado, shop my edit of the new trench coats for spring, that are anything but boring. Enjoy!
