In the trenches


A new decade may call for reimagining the classics, but some things need little updating.

BRAVE + TRUE SAFARI TRENCH.

When it comes to the trench, we’ll never say no to the classic cut, but reimagined iterations have been trickling in for the last few seasons, as the darlings of the design world work hard to ensure it maintains a modern edge.

This year trench coats are coming through in unique materials – including silk, organza and leather. It’s not just the materials that are getting a revamp, with the trusty trench also being paired in unique ways, such as the popular dress and trench combo.

Structured check trench coats make the perfect addition to your transeasonal wardrobe, so you can turn heads come rain or shine.

It pairs well with a white tee and wide-leg blue jeans, or buttoned and wrapped up with a pair of straight-leg trousers and heels.

If we’re seeing trench coats made of organza and covered in checks, it’ll come as no surprise that we’re also getting clever with colour.

There’s nothing quite like colour to brighten up a chilly day and now we’re giving our trench coats the same treatment.

Meanwhile the classic double-breasted military trench makes its welcome return, with its timeless and universally flattering silhouette.

In 2020 however, it might be time to swap out the soft military trench for a crisp cotton iteration featuring a strong lapel, wide belt and sharp, interesting details.

This winter, try an elegant check coat to elevate your outwear – and your body temperature.

The slow creep of winter can no longer be ignored.

The icy temperatures are knocking on our doors and, now we’re allowed out of the house, rugging up to brave the elements has never been more appealing, even more so if you have a chic check coat to adorn.

An irrefutable nod to Burberry’s resurrection of its iconic trench, we’re now seeing this newest incarnation of plaid everywhere from design houses to the high street and we’re welcoming its warmer, woollen fabrications.

If the classic Burberry palette of camel, beige and rust tones are not for you, many designs stray into safer darker shades or, conversely, add bold pops of colour for the sartorially adventurous.

The check effect transcends cut too, offering endless options to suit your preferred silhouettes and pair perfectly with your favourite wintry layers.
