Trench Coat Styles

 

Time for Transitioning

My top list of British favourites includes Afternoon Tea, Terry’s Chocolate Orange and that unmistakeable English humour – I’m not so much into Shepard’s Pie though! And of course there is always the timeless topper that is as British as the Queen herself: the Trench Coat.

But why is it considered such a classic and a vital part of every girl’s closet? Well, there’s a myriad of reasons, but I guess the most important one is the fact that there are countless ways to style it. Whether thrown over a simple denim combo or an elegant ensemble, it always looks smart and at the same time it’s super functional too –  even when the weather tends to be British. Speaking of which, the most popular trench is handcrafted to perfection in the UK. But who am I telling, you all surely know that the classic topper with checkered lining is Burberry’s signature style…even my daughter knows, and she’s only 7 years old, already eyeing my coat and asking me if she can have it one day. And the chances that she will rock it in future are high, because a classic Burberry Trench Coat never goes out of fashion and is almost undestructable.

So what makes a Trench Coat a Trench Coat, you may ask? Well I’m not going to sit here and lecture you, because quite frankly I had to google it myself. But the main features of a trench as stated online are the military epaulettes, the 10 double-breasted buttons and the gun-flap on the shoulder. But thankfully the gun flap, which originally served to protect the fabric from wearing when firing a shotgun is no longer needed, however it still comes in handy when carrying our shoulder bags.

Of course, like any self-respecting Fashion-girl I own more than one Trench Coat, and it too transitions me from season to season. Lately I discovered another perfectly crafted style by The MAC and suprise surprise, it hails from the UK – where it always seems to rain cats and dogs… gosh I sound so British today!
