Fashion Trends: the mac gets a makeover

Macintosh-coats

The humble Macintosh is something of a Spring wardrobe staple, although over the last couple of years we’ve been seeing more of this style than ever. This year’s macs come with a bit of a twist, though, and it doesn’t really matter whether that twist takes the form of a funnel collar, a floppy one, or a bright collar and corset waits, as shown in the example above, as long as it’s just that little bit different from the standard, classic trench.

The three coats above are amongst The Fashion Police’s favourites, but what do you think? Will you be slipping into a trench coat this Spring?

    I have a “classic” mac – I have been thinking I might customise it to make it kind of similar to these – I love the one of the left with the fuller skirt – and that collar is fab… Looks like I might have to dust off my sewing machine…

    I totally adore trench coats, I have a classic white one and a modern take on a black one. They are just teh best thing for spring, perfect for dresses but just as well for the casual look too. Love love trenches! Must get more thou;) Loving the purple one, so thinking about getting one in an interesting color for this spring..mmmmmmm;)
