The official uniform of the season has arrived


Things might be heating up in the capital, but spring in the UK still hasn’t quite sprung. This calls for one thing and one thing only: layering essentials. A quick look around for the city’s style set will reveal one key staple for this year’s spring wardrobe: trench coats. Whether casually layered over knits and jeans or slung over a snazzy suit, trench coats are the ultimate forever piece – and they never go out of style.

Trench coats are perfect for elevating any casual spring outfit. Simply layer over your favourite pair of jeans and jumper, and you have the perfect cosy-feel-stylish-look. And if you want to take the look for day to night, swap the trainers for heels and pile on the jewellery.

Also ideal for making a shift from dark, rich winter colours to a brighter spring palette, a trench coat can bridge the gap between colour sets so you can mix and match for the ultimate transeasonal look. Think cream, sand and honey mixed with burgundy, bottle green and black.

The perfect wardrobe is made even better by its wearability in the office. Being the timeless classic it is, a trench looks just as good with suiting staples (trousers, blazers, waistcoats and pencil skirts) as it does with a trusty pair of jeans. And bonus points if you’re able to team yours up with the semi-formal shoe of the season, the loafer.

Weather not making up its mind? That’s where the trench comes in; get the best of both worlds by pulling your jacket over a cute spring dress and trainers, for perfect multi-seasonal wear. Now you have the perfect amount of layers for chilly mornings, plus a lovely makeshift picnic blanket for when the sun comes out in the afternoon.
