It’s finally April and I ‘m still hopping that warm weather will eventually pay us a visit in Manchester. In the meantime, let’s talk about one of the spring’s most essential clothing items – trench coats. It can be classic ones or, the hit of this season, oversized ones. The trench coats will never really go out of style, they just tend to come back into the new seasons in either new colours or slightly different shapes. We all noticed on the SS18 catwalks the trench was king, both deconstructed and classic versions, the spring’s most prolific trend is back!
Blending classic with contemporary is the main key you should look for in this season’s trenches. The hot designers like Balenciaga and Vetements showed us an updated look to the timeless piece by adding 80’s and 90’s twists to them, new styles are longer and oversized
But it doesn’t mean you have to invest in a designer gear. I purchased mine in Zara and Next last year, the high street stores are currently offering lots of different options in terms of colours and designs and the quality does fall behind. Below are my top picks of trenches from the high street. Happy shopping!
