If everyone has a fashion holy grail, then mine is the perfect trench coat.
With miserable weather, a new job and a wardrobe lacking a decent rain coat, the hunt has got serious.
H&M’s grown-up new off-shoot, & Other Stories looked VERY promising, but a lack of trench coat funds and a limited stock run meant it sold out before I got to it.
Look how beautiful it is, sob:
The classic is the Burberry trench, modelled this season by girl of the moment Cara Delevigne (and Romeo Beckham). It is a timeless style, updated each season with new details including studs. Spring’s leather metallics are pretty special too.
I’m after plain, simple, not short, but no longer than the knee and beige.
Here are some contenders. Let me know if you find any gorgeous ones as the credit card is poised.
