5 of the best… trench coats

It's a style classic for a reason - the trench is probably the most chic, useful piece you can buy (banish all thoughts of Inspector Clouseau). Here are our new season favourites.

Hands up who’s bored of their big winter coat? Yup, us too. But very soon we’ll be able to switch to something a little lighter and swishier. May we humbly suggest the not-so-humble trench coat? It goes with everything, from jeans to dresses, from stilettos to sneakers, thanks to a winning combo of neutral shade ‘n’ classic cut. As you’d expect with a spring style perennial there’s a billion of them around right now, many with a pleasing new season twist. Voilà, our top five new trenches.

IRIS & INK

Net-a-Porter's discount site sister, The Outnet, always comes up trumps with its own brand, Iris & Ink. This coat comes in classic beige cotton-twill but has a modern, swingy cut, ideal for those who aren't big on belts.

OASIS

No buttons mean this bargain buy has a chic, minimal feel. It's worth sticking your head around the door of '90s high street favourite Oasis, we reckon.

MAJE

For a coat that's supposed to protect against spring showers, it's odd that trenches rarely come with hoods. But this Maje marvel does practicality with panache.

ASOS

Find beige boring? Think pink, khaki or grey shades instead. This dusky rose ASOS coat is pretty but still neutral. The covered buttons are cute too.

SANDRO

We've saved the best until last. Yes, it's pricey but just look at her - what a beauty! Super-chic French label Sandro's pleating perfection is a masterclass in elevating a quotidian buy into something très special.
