Every time autumn rolls around there’s bound to be a new must-have coat for the winter season. We’ve had the puffa, teddy bear and cocoon, but if you’re looking to invest in something that stands the test of time when it comes to trends then a trench should be your top buy.
More than a classic, I see the trench as a wardrobe essential. It’s the one item of outerwear you can always turn to when things start to cool off at the end of summer, and you can also looking forward to digging out again once we’ve made it through the colder months and spring time arrives.
You don’t need to be a traditionalist when it comes to the trench either, our high street is very clever at putting a fresh spin on this ever stylish essential. & Other Stories have a great cape trench (it’s in my round up below), Whistles have a minimalist looking, high collar version, or add a splash of colour to your winter wardrobe, New Look have a gorgeous rusty trench that is so bang on for winter 18 and currently on sale (also below)!!
Price tags on the high street vary wildly, you can pick up a great entry level trench for around £40 but expect to pay closer to £300 at the higher end of the high street. If a trench is not something your tried before these entry level prices are perfect for giving it a go , then maybe investing wisely once you realise what a versatile addition to your wardrobe a trench will be, especially when it comes to navigating those tricky transitional outerwear woes with ease.
