Smart macs and trench coats are the perfect coats of armour against Springtime showers, but it doesn’t have to be a boring, uniform look. Here’s how to wear your mac so that you can still be stylish when braving the rain:
A completely classic look never dates, and as far as the mac goes classic means a thigh-to-knee length camel coloured coat that goes with absolutely everything. Burberry is, of course, King of the classic belted mac, with plenty of variations to choose from besides.
A Full Skirt
Add a feminine twist with a full-skirted belted trench coat. Moschino has some swishy skirted trenches, including a Full Length Jacket that’s classic from the front, but quirky from the back.
With Added Interest
Little details can add individuality to an iconic look. Floral embroidery, for example, will add a feminine touch, while a leather trim gives a trench a more edgy vibe. You could even add your own leather belt to create a look similar to this Martin Grant White Leather Trim Trench Coat.
A Short Story
Don’t be scared to choose the length of trench coat that best suits you. A shorter to-the-waist style can be just as wearable as a longer coat – or go for a full-on floor swisher if you like to stand out in a crowd.
A Stylish Switch
Switching up the fabric can be a great way to express individuality while wearing such an iconic shape of coat. Denim is a good casual option, while selecting silk will make your trench eveningwear ready.
Wearing a bright coat will ensure that you stand out on gloomy overcast days, and trench coats come in all colours of the rainbow. Burberry is a good label to look at, with every colour from post box red to duck egg blue – with plenty of perfect prints to choose from too!
