When you live in England, you need to be mentally prepared to wear jackets even in Spring/Summer. Two weeks ago I was wearing tights!
So it is important to have a nice coat you can wear when it is not too cold but not warm enough to be without a jacket either. That’s why a trench coat is so practical and useful.
Trench coats are bang on trend this year so I thought I should share my two favorite trench coats that I wear all the time. One is from Zara and the other is from Naf Naf, my two favorite shops!
I always find so difficult to pick a winter coat and it is the same for spring/summer jackets. I want a colour which goes with everything, a nice fit, good quality, something that keeps me warm but still stylish. You can be all well-dressed up with the perfect outfit but if the coat you’re wearing is not stylish, your whole style is ruined. No chance I can let this happen!
This is a classic trench coat with a very nice beige colour which goes with anything. The quality of this coat is great, it is quite thick so it really keeps me warm and I love wearing it when it is raining (it does not happen often in England right?) as I feel properly covered.
I have worn this coat with a casual look, jeans and flat but also with dresses and heels. It is just a multi-purpose coat which I see as a must especially if you are after a french style.
Now, one thing I have always felt with trench coats – because I am quite petite, I always felt that by wearing a long coat it would make me look smaller. This is not true and a lot also depends on what you wear under the coat. I find that with heels, it really gives this elegant and chic look. If I do wear flat, I would make sure I am wearing skinny jeans or a skirt. I would not wear wide trousers as it would then make me look smaller.
I have actually bought this coat four years ago so it shows that trench coats are timeless and it also proves that Naf Naf products are top quality.
What I like about this trench is the cut. It is so unique, the wide cut and the details on the belt and sleeves make it such a cute coat to wear. The colour is also lovely; it is a nice kaki which is very easy to wear.
I have also added below my favorite trench coats from this year collection in Mango & Zara. Let me know what you think. I definitely need a colored trench so that will be my next on the list 🙂
