The 10 best trench coats to invest in for autumn (and beyond)

Posted by for Fashion

The classic trench coat is a wardrobe staple you’ll love now, and forever.

We’re all for new season newness. Whether it’s a statement autumn knit or a pair of chunky stomper boots, the new season is the perfect time to experiment with trends. But if you’re looking to commit to a piece that offers long-time appeal there’s one wardrobe hero that promises to last a lifetime: the trench coat. 

A solid style staple, a timeless trench is perfect for those days when the weather is blowing a gale at 9am and unspoilt sunshine is forecast for 4pm. And in case you hadn’t noticed, the street style set loves it, too

The classic design of a beige trench makes it ideal to layer over experimental on-trend looks to keep even the most stand-out styles (supersize collar shirts, anyone?) down to earth. 

Are you ready to commit? Whether you’re searching for a style to take on your staycation or looking to invest in a piece of fashion history (like the iconic Burberry styles, above) here’s our pick of the best trench coats to buy now and wear for years to come.
