A transitional trench for autumn is hardly revolutionary, but the appeal of these not-too-hot, not-too-cold salves endures for a reason. Timeless coverups, trenches are wardrobe chameleons which can adapt to any dress code.
This autumn, trenches come in classic beige as well as a seasonal palette of terracottas and yellows sure to brighten those grey summerless days.
When deciding what to team with your trench, the power of beige lends itself to almost anything – bright patterns, party dresses, activewear, or even, dare we say it, more beige tones.
Our favourite looks for this season include a trench layered with a hoody underneath and sneakers for instant casual cool, or paired with a silky dress and heeled, knee-high boots for something more glamorous.
For such a wardrobe staple which can last style-wise for years, it may be wallet-wise to splash out and invest in a piece which will last quality-wise, too.
Offerings from Saba, Moochi, Camilla & Marc and Acne Studios – all available at Canterbury retailers – certainly tick that box.
