Trench

There are few things quite as iconic as a trench coat, and this season all the designers have added at least one to their repertoire, styling them with everything from animal-print shorts to chiffon blouses. However, we think it still looks best when you keep it classic, pairing with the likes of jeans, Breton tops, trainers and leather leggings. Here are four ways of wearing our favourite summer outerwear; our top tip is to go to the top end of your budget on this piece, as it will be in your wardrobe forever.

Burberry Trench Square
1

With Classic Jeans

A no-brainer outfit – the ultimate off-duty uniform for busy mums. Smart, dressed-up but definitely practical. Just add your favourite trainers or a tan boot and cross-body bag.

2

With a Utility Skirt

This is a great Friday office outfit, or if you work somewhere more informal. Covered-up, smart but not too stiff – we would add a great knee-high boot and a statement hoop if you are heading out in the evening.

3

With an Everyday Dress

Checks are everywhere this season and we are planning to wear ours on a dress, with our trusty trench and a fluffy slide. You can also layer this look for winter with a high ankle boot and polo neck.

4

With Leather Leggings

Two of our favourites – the leather legging and a casual, non-sports trainer – are the ideal combo with your trench. This look is perfect for travelling in; just team with a cashmere jumper and vintage cotton t-shirt.
