Classic Burberry Trench & A Fuschia Marc by Marc Jacobs Trench

If we say it loud enough it might warm up, spring has sprung and you know what that means, time to start thinking about a new wardrobe. The sudden burst of sunshine has given us the perfect excuse to turn our attention to a spot of shopping. No doubt we’re heading for that transitional period, when the days get longer (As of Sunday may I remind you) and it’s just not cold enough for a coat. We hope, although right now, I’m freezing! So we suggest you make your next investment piece a classic trench. A style staple that is a safe bet for anyone watching the pennies and looking to build a capsule wardrobe. Not forgetting that investing in a good fitting mac will mean you can wear it year after year. Katie Holmes, a famed mac wearer, does ladylike chic effortlessly in her full skirted trench and Mary Jane heels. Check out our selection of the best styles available to buy now.

The classic Burberry trench is at the top of our wish list but, with a £582.00 price tag, style certainly doesn’t come cheap (available from Net-a-Porter). If you do go for a classic trench ensure it’s a

close fitting style with a belt to really cinch in the waist, to give you a sleek silhouette. If however, your bank balance can’t quite stretch to a Burberry trench, the high street offers a range of alternatives to suit any budget. Check out Miss Selfridge and Topshop for the best budget buys, they have a number of trench coats in eye popping rainbow hues.We do like the Sonia Rykiel coral trench, but at £445 it’s one we may have to save up for. However Miss Selfridge has a good alternative at £65.00, perfect for brightening up even the dullest of days.

Check out River Island’s huge selection of mac’s, we like this skirted mac which is ultra-flattering and a real bargain at £74.99. There’s also no need to stick to a traditional trench, we like Topshop’s no sleeves version which is more like a fitted dress, perfect for when the warmer weather sets in. Alternatively go for a girly look with embellished detail, bows and ruffles for modern spin on the mac.
