A Twist on the Trench

The trench coat is a perfect staple item for any wardrobe, a classic style to protect you from the rain. See how these designers have re-invented the trench this Spring.

Tan RI Studio embroidered trench coat £130 

Drawing on the popularity of embroidery at the moment, this River Island find is a classic with a twist. With the enlarged, embroidered wind-flap drawing the eye, the placement and colouring of the detail is subtle but striking.

PRADA Colour-block silk-faille trench coat £1,925

Who wants plain old beige, when you can add an injection of baby pink and vibrant orange? Not me, that’s for sure, although much less attainable (price-wise) than my other options.

Two-coloured belt parka £139.99

Okay so technically, not a trench, but it’s beige and has a belt, so I’m going to call it a Utility Trench. So many interesting details in this Mango piece, and as shown above, plenty of ways to wear as well.

 Zara Double Breasted Trench Coat, Navy £79.99

Still classic, just not beige, this navy Zara alternative is perfect to disguise rain splatters if you’re just too busy for dry-cleaning.

Draped Trench Coat, & Other Stories £125

Add some elegance to your Spring wardrobe with this free-flowing trench. Unlined and made of a much softer fabric than your usual gabardine, you can chuck this on over any Spring ensemble.
