A great trench coat is arguably as classic as the LBD and is a practical essential to any wardrobe! The modern trench has become synonymous with Burberry, as the brand has cultivated and perfected its design. The trench coat is timeless and so versatile; you can literally wear it forever and here’s why:
This label is a phenomenon. It is deeply rooted in its history – the brand was founded in 1856 – but still at the top of every trend. The secret of Burberry: it’s quality and it’s consistency. Because real classics like the trench coat, the trench coat with the famous check pattern have a very unique and rare talent: The can adopt every style. They can be elegant, sporty, glamorous or even punky – but they will never be out of fashion.
The easy-to-spot Burberry trench coat is a style staple among the A-list due to its versatility. Sported by Alexa Chung and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on numerous occasions, other style-setters spotted wearing the celebrated classic include Jessica Chastain, Poppy Delevingne and Clémence Poésy
Thomas Burberry invented gabardine, a durable water-resistant fabric that is lightweight and packable perfect for travel and the khaki shade flatters every skin tone and pairs well with neutrals and brights alike.
Seaming gives this menswear staple a feminine fit, and the double-breasted design accommodates a larger bust while throwing straighter figures a curve. The mid-length style provides rear coverage and it’s perfect to wear over dresses.
Flat and strategically placed at the front of the hip to avoid unnecessary bulk, yet deep enough to hold all your essentials.
It’s a favorite of mine for transitional weather since the fabric is light yet resilient. I can easily dress it up or down. Style it over jeans and a t-shirt or over a dress and heels for a streamlined look. While I often layer it for winter, I also love the trench for spring. A true three season coat that is both work appropriate and weekend comfy!
