Not that a trench coat is ever out of style, but its soft tailoring, restrained colour palette, unfussy detail and unisex appeal is perfectly in tune with this season’s sober, androgynous styles.
And these stylish Londoners are putting their own unique twist on the classic trans-seasonal coat.
Button up and tighten that belt for a smart look, adding polish with neat trousers and heeled boots, or wear loose and undone with a relaxed dress or slouchy separates, finished off with a bright scarf or cool clutch.
