Suede Trench Coat
Every year around late winter and early spring, a sea of trench coats begins to rise and it’s a time I live for. I have had many of the pieces, from my first Primark one to test the waters, to the Topshop version I wore once because I looked FAR too Sherlocky than the usual acceptable amount. This year I was kindly gifted mine from New Look. Oh, and it’s suede. Real suede? Doubt it. Soft and beautiful nevertheless? Indeed.
I’ve had many compliments on it already, including the ‘I’m going to have to get mine out of the loft now’. Sure, it’s not the classic Burbs, we can all dream, but it does the job well enough. The stone colour compliments my entire wardrobe completely. Even if you fancied wearing… black… a beige top layer would do you very well.
Spring Trench Coat Staple
The coat is both minimalist, and statement. You know when people are looking at what you’re wearing, but you’ll rarely feel OTT in the middle of a crowd. Unless that’s what you want. Then get it in ALL the colours. To conclude, I don’t see this spring staple being off trend any time soon. A classic, wearable piece for years to come.
