It won’t get you through the worst of winter without some serious layering underneath, but for these early Autumn days (and for those of you who live in a warmer climate), a classic trench coat is one of things you’ll wear with everything and keep forever – not to mention the fact that this style has been crazily popular for most of this year already.
Our current favourite trench is Topshop’s full skirted version, but as it’s sold out in all but a couple of sizes, this one from Oli is coming a close second. The colour and shape are classic, but the puffed, cuffed sleeves bring it up to date, and the fabric has a soft sheen to it that is presumably why Oli describes it as a “glamour mac”. Ooh-er! £69 buys you it here.
