Last year’s sell-out ASOS trench is back and it's even better

Last year, ASOS served up the perfect checkered trench coat for less than £100, and it was an instant sell-out, gracing the backs of editors and influencers alike.

Well now it's back for another season, and it's even better than the last one. Introducing the ASOS DESIGN check spliced oversized trench coat in stone, which comes in at £75.

The reason I say it's better than last season's is that it's slightly more wearable, given that the check pattern as at the back of the coat, meaning it's super classic and timeless from the front. Business up front and party at the back if you will.

The coat is also available with a black panel at the back if you want to keep things even more classic, though the checks are the winner for me.

ASOS has revealed that trench coats are one of their best-selling items so you might have to be quick if you want to get in on the action before it sells out.

That said, there are plenty of other great trench options on the site for the spring season, from olive vinyl styles to timeless stone and navy ones.

Happy shopping.

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.
