Styling the trench coat for spring is a paid for advertorial in collaboration with Jack Wills.
My name’s Gemma and I’m a coat addict. There I said it. I own way too many coats for one person purely because they all have different styles that don’t go with every outfit. You name it and I probably own it from everyday coats to special occasion coats. But, there is one coat that looks great with nearly every outfit whatever the season and that’s the trench coat. When I spotted this little beauty I just knew I had to buy it.
I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve gone out recently thinking the weather would be warm (it is May after all) and felt like I was freezing. Don’t even get me started on this rain! Other times I’ve decided to wear a coat and roasted when the sun makes a surprise appearance. A trench coat is the perfect outerwear for this kind of unpredictable weather. They are warm enough to keep of the chill but light enough that you won’t get too hot.
The trench coat was all over the catwalks for this season appearing at Celine with a utilitarian style and Burberry with a high shine luxe finish. Looking to the high street and stores like Jack Wills also have their own trench coat ranges.
Styling The Trench Coat With Jack Wills
I actually bought the Dollyhill Swing Trench Coat in pale blue and I love it. It’s the perfect spring shade and is a different take on the classic trench. I chose to keep my look quite casual and style it with skinny jeans (of course), simple grey tshirt and cute little white sandals. I love the pop of bright pink lipstick with the pale blue, it really makes me feel like spring is here.
Another favourite way to style it is of course with a shirt, tailored trousers, leather handbag and heels. Jack Wills have actually put together a handy guide on how to style a trench coat if you’re after some helpful hints and tips.
