eminiscent of its original military heritage, the double-breasted trench is a classic interpretation that will never go out of style. The double-breasted cut gives you an extra layer of warmth ideal for chillier days, perfect for layering over denim and a Breton knit for the epitome of French-chic styling. Whether you opt for something cropped, classic beige for perennial style or mix it up with a leather version or pop of colour, our edit of designer double breasted trench coats from brands including Burberry and Sandro has something to suit.
An essential for laidback layering, the single breasted trench coat brings a fresh approach to the classic design. With a looser structure for an effortless look, the single-breasted trench coat works well worn open to showcase the rest of your outfit. Equally, this type of trench coat can look extra chic belted and nipped in at the waist. Whether you go for something in neutral shades or switch it up with a pop of print or colour, these new styles from Ted Baker and The Kooples are certain to elevate your spring/summer style.
Bring the summer vibes into your trench coat with a fresh colour palette. From classic shades of white to bold and bright hues that make a statement, colour is key when it comes to choosing your new trench coat. If you’re more for a classic look with a new season twist, a white trench coat from the likes of Tommy Hilfiger or Karl Lagerfeld will bring a dose of freshness that will lighten up any ensemble. Meanwhile pastel shades from lemon to violet will give your look a sugary-sweet twist and pops of neon including lime and orange adding a burst of acidity.
Texture is another important element to consider when picking out your new trench coat. For a practical option, waterproof cotton canvas is the ultimate investment as not only will it keep you warm but it will also help to wick water away, essential for any spring showers. Lightweight nylon trench coats are perfect for travelling as they won’t weigh you down, whilst for a more fashion-forward look, patent trench coats and leather styles are key for SS20. Look to our edit featuring Claudie Pierlot and American Vintage.
