Topshop’s new trench is set to be the hottest coat for autumn

Summer is almost over, which means it’s finally time to start thinking about our autumn wardrobes.

While it’s no secret that we’ve had to bring out some of our last season A/W items one too many times over the past few months thanks to the unpredictable British weather, the end of August has seen our favourite high street retailers introduce their first batch of must-have pieces for 2019 – and there’s some seriously exciting stuff on the shelves.

First Zara launched what has already been dubbed as the ‘it’ boot of the season and now, Topshop has dropped a chic trench coat which has immediately become a huge hit on Instagram.

The khaki vinyl style trench seems to be the cool girl’s must-have autumn piece and it’s easy to see why. Not only is it perfectly practical and on-trend for the rainy season ahead, but it’s a statement piece that can instantly make any old plain outfit look effortlessly stylish.

And if khaki isn’t your colour then fear not because the Contrast Vinyl Trench also comes in black, meaning you won’t have to miss out.

The coat, which is priced at £79, is currently available in sizes 8 to 16 – though we doubt it will last long considering the hype it has already received on social media.

Popular influencers @WeAreTwinset shared a snap of themselves wearing the coat recently with the caption: ‘Turns out I’ve found my favourite new season piece in August…& it’s perfect for the midsummer monsoon!’

Similarly, Harper’s Bazaar‘s Contributing Fashion Editor Florrie Thomas posed in the trendy trench, while celebrity stylist and influencer @MelissasWardrobe also shared an image of herself wearing the dress, calling it the ‘coat of dreams’ in her caption.

So as you can see, it’s quite the popular pick. Regardless of which colour you opt for, the jacket can be styled in a number of different ways – from throwing it over an autumnal midi dress to wearing it with a pair of jeans and a jumper, the options are endless.
