You’ll be singing in the rain with this season’s most stylish trench coats
Most of us are in need of cheering up as yet more miserable dark rain clouds move into our skies. Here at The Sloaney, we have a sudden urge for some retail therapy and it is time to embrace the autumn storms and use them as an excuse (not that we need one) to dress to impress.
This season’s selection of trench coats will suit every taste. Burberry has long been top of the list of shopping destinations when searching for this key piece for your wardrobe. This month there are a number of desirable trenches available from one of Britain’s favourite brands, including this contemporary design (£1,195) that features black quilted leather on the arms and mixes a military and urban theme.
If you prefer a shorter option, Yves Saint Laurent has a chic version (£1,250) that is currently available in Harrods. You can’t beat the traditional approach and this coat will act as the perfect transitional piece as the temperature cools.
Staying with the shorter theme, Harvey Nichols is featuring a quilted trench (£400) by Barbour. This warmer option will help fend off the impending frosty mornings and also includes a buckle belt to help accentuate your waist.
Finally, for those who really want to turn heads, Lanvin’s bright red satin twill trench (£1,680) is quite simply exquisite. The vibrant colour is complemented by subtle stud detail and this piece will make a striking statement during the day or accompany an evening outfit.
