Best colourful trench coats

A colourful trench is the rainy weather pick-me-up you need

Posted by for Fashion

From green to grey, pink to purple, these colourful trenches will keep you dry – but no less fabulous.

It’s raining, it’s pouring, but one thing your wardrobe needn’t be amid the drizzly showers is boring.

Because while the virtues of a classic beige trench have been extolled at large – and nobody’s disputing their versatility or universal appeal – but sometimes, in the midst of the pouring rain, your outfit just needs an injection of sartorial jazz hands, if you will. In this instance, that comes in the form of a colourful trench coat.  

While at the end of May, it seems utterly immoral to still be selecting our ensembles from our winter wardrobes, a colourful trench transitions seamlessly between seasons; both utilitarian in its practicality and versatile in its wearability, here’s an item with cross-seasonal appeal. Pair with jeans and a tongue-in-cheek topper for a park stroll, or throw over a dress to make your trip to the pub just a touch more waterproof, but no less fabulous.

From high street honeys Cos and Mango, to Instagram-favourites Stand Studio and Nanushka, there’s a joy-inducing colourful trench for every body and every budget. These are our favourites.
