I’ve never met a trench coat I haven’t liked. They are so chic, so elegant and they can literally pull any look together. When I go to the supermarket in my jogging bottoms at the weekend (no shame in my game), I stick a trench coat on over et voila! Who cares that I am wearing my pyjama bottoms? No-one! They are just wondering how I manage to be so impossibly chic in my chic trench coat.

Seriously though, the trench is super versatile and there are no style rules when it comes to wearing one. You can wear with jeans, with a dress (the dress can be either longer or shorter than the trench, doesn’t matter), heels, boots or trainers.

Burberry is synonymous with the trench coat and if you can afford it, I’d invest. They’re beautiful and hard-wearing – this is the classic option.

If your budget doesn’t stretch, this ASOS version I’m wearing here is gorgeous. It’s in suedette and it’s only £65. I also love this one from Mint Velvet. The jumper dress is also from ASOS and the trainers are by one of my favourite footwear brands Senso.
