A Classic Trench Coat

Posted in Daily Outfits, Fashion.

There’s nothing quite like a good coat. You could be wearing the shabbiest outfit underneath (or maybe even nothing at all underneath, if you’re that way inclined) but with a good coat on top, you’ll always look polished and pulled together. A good coat is the ultimate tool for the lazy fashionista.

I was sent this timeless trench coat by Lands’ End – I have a couple of trench coats that I usually save for spring, but the cosy button-in lining (which can be removed for warmer weather) makes this one winter appropriate.

I kept my accompanying outfit quite classic – there’s something about a trench coat that makes me come over all Parisian. I dressed down in denim and stripes with a flash of leopard print and a slick of red lipstick, but that’s the beauty of the trench – it works over an LBD for a fancy night out or over jeans and a tee for a trip down the shops. The ultimate wardrobe multi-tasker.

My piΓ¨ce de rΓ©sistance (there’s that French thing again) is this beautiful handmade clutch bag, kindly sent to me by Becky, the lady behind London-based Carried Away. It’s a custom design featuring lots of little birds and I just adore it. And it matches my nails. Perfect.

Do you have a classic trench coat in your wardrobe? Let me know how you’d style it!

This coat was sent to me as a review item and I was commissioned to contribute to the Lands’ End outerwear guide.

I got a trench coat 2 years ago from George at ASDA for £25 and it has served me well ever since as I only wear it 2 months out of the year at most. I am, however, lusting after a Fred Perry one I spotted (£250) and the studded shoulder trench in Zara (£80) at the moment. Decisions, decisions…

Gorgeous, that bag is beautiful.
I have my trusty trench dry cleaned and ready for spring. I love wearing it but find it too cold in the winter, that lining would be perfect.
