10 of the best trench coats for spring

Dressed up or down, a trench coat will never look out of place (Picture:

We’re now in that awkward in-between phase of the weather – one day it’s mild, the next there’s a cold bite in the wind.

Though you might like the idea of ditching coats entirely, the March and April sun – while looking deceptively bright through a window – can be chilly once outdoors.

So it’s a good time to opt for the trench coat: warm enough for those cooler days, but lightweight and easy to carry for when the sun’s rays actually poke through.

There’s a reason the trench style has endured for so long: it’s versatile, practical and will look appropriate in just about any setting.

It can be dressed down with jeans and white trainers or dressed up with smarter apparel, and it’ll also provide a little shielding from British spring showers.

Whether you like trench coats in a classic cut and beige tone, or prefer a modernised take with a boyfriend shape and bolder colour, here’s a selection to cater for different tastes.
