It's official, I've found one of the best trench coats of 2023, and it comes courtesy of ARKET.

It's just so damn perfect that I think you can stop searching and dedicate the rest of the year to other sartorial pursuits (such as shopping for a great designer handbag).

Dubbed the 'cotton linen coat,' it's cut at a flattering calf length and is slightly oversized, immediately making it look more expensive. It's crafted from a blend of linen and cotton and features a slightly rounded collar as well as slanted pockets and tortoiseshell buttons down the front.

In other words, it's chic and practical and comes in at just £150, which is relatively affordable when you consider the fact that it is undoubtedly a timeless item that will become an integral part of your capsule wardrobe for years to come. 

The beauty of a trench coat is that it is endlessly versatile. Whether you're choosing to pair it alongside jeans and a t-shirt or throw it over a printed midi dress, a classic beige trench (like the one below) will go with just about everything you own.

Now, I will say that Arket has a few other great trench coats available, so I feel obliged to include them, too. Some of the iterations are a little more classic, while others could be a contemporary addition to your wardrobe. 

Arket's linen cotton trench is a timeless take on the item and features a double-breasted silhouette, alongside shoulder epaulettes and an adjustable waist belt. While the brand also has a cropped trench on offer, if you're interested in trying a slightly more modern silhouette.

A cropped look will see you through summer too, as it offers a slightly more warm-weather feel. 

Without further ado, keep scrolling to shop the other top trench coats that Arket has on offer, and add a piece to your forever wardrobe today.

She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
