The words ‘trans-seasonal dressing’ get bandied around a lot in the fashion industry at this time of year, with trench coats and hardy, long-line macs creeping into the spring trend pages like clockwork. But this year, the onset of spring showers has us focussed on finding outerwear to challenge our imagination as well as the weather. Yes, the cut and silhouette may look familiar, but this season’s hero trench is a far cry from classic.
How to wear
We’ll be taking our lead from Anya Hindmarch and investing in a semi-sheer, rubberised trench – in other words, a coat that’s waterproof enough to weather the storm, while showcasing the carefully curated ensemble below. Maximise on the joys of a translucent fabric by making a statement via a slogan tee, teamed with tonal accessories and plenty of leg. Rainy days have never looked so sexy.
