With the weather turning a little milder it’s time to think about swapping big coats for something more Spring-like. A trench coat is perfect for this time of year when you still want good coverage (I’m thinking specifically bum coverage!) but don’t need a heavy layer. If they happen to be shower-proof, so much the better.
Whether you opt for a classic neutral trench, a bright colour or even a patterned one, it will be an item you can wear for years to come. This is a wardrobe staple that will never date. Although my colour palette is not exactly channelling Spring, the combination of sparkly stripes and bright red trench coat certainly lifts my mood. I see no reason to limit the sparkly stuff to Christmas 😉
The jumper is a new purchase – reduced to just £12 in the sale! I’m loving tops with a high neck and balloon sleeves right now. The jumper pairs so well with my Finery trousers (currently my favourite pair). Last time I wore these trousers on the blog I opted for navy ankle boots to create a leg-lengthening effect. On this occasion I took my cue from the trench coat and dark red stripes in the jumper and chose my red Lotus boots instead. The wide fit means they’re really comfortable, despite the heel. The dark red metallic fabric looks lovely when it catches the sunlight. They are great for dressing up (worn here with a lace skirt) or styled more casually with trousers.
I’ve had this Biba red trench coat for years. The shiny fabric makes it really vibrant and look that little bit “extra”. I’ve worn it to a wedding over a red dress, but it looks equally good over jeans.
