Thanks to their unrivalled versatility, the best trench coats have long been regarded as a trans-seasonal staple. In fact, they are one of the few items of clothing suitable for both casual and smart occasions. With jeans or tailored trousers, heels or trainers – they just work.
They’re one of those items that can take a lot of pavement pounding to find the right one, but once found, it’s something that you can wear season after season, and is well worth the investment.
If it’s something classic you’re after, go for a tan, cream or beige shade. We’ve seen some sophisticated neutral designs at Mango, Marks & Spencer and APC.
Navy is another great option for those of you wanting to buy a jacket that can be donned for work or at the weekend. Our favourite dark trench coat out right now can be snapped up for £195 from Topshop Boutique.

Smart enough for work and glam enough for a wedding, we say they’re worth every penny.
