Although 2022 has served us some awful stormy weather so far, spring is definitely on the way. Daffodils are starting to spring up and it’s no longer pitch black at 4pm – hurrah! As much as we’re desperate to fling off the layers, we’re all familiar with the likeliness of spring showers in the UK. But if there’s one style of outerwear that’s worth investing in to be ready for the new season, it’s trench coats.
Trench coats offer the perfect protection from rain and gentle wind, while maintaining a stylish look. There are plenty of lightweight jacket options out there, but the trench is one style of outerwear that really transcends time unlike all others.
Not only are they an excellent choice for spring, but trench coats are also ideal for the transition from summer into autumn. Their versatility means you can wear them over pretty much everything, from chunky knitwear to pretty spring dresses. Plus, they work with a range of footwear, from boots and loafers to trainers and sandals.
True devotees to the trench may be saving for a Burberry style, which is arguably the holy grail of the trench. However, the high street always produces plenty of options that are chic, high quality and versatile for styling.
There are always so many trench coat styles to purchase every year, it can be a bit daunting to find the perfect one for you. Do you go for a belted number, or perhaps a buttoned style instead? Classic beige or a daring colour? To help you out, we’ve picked out our favourite styles available to buy right now,from just £33 (and some are even on sale).
