Trust Us: You Are Going to Live in This Cool Coat for Spring

If you were to ask any fashion person what the most iconic British coat is, they will no doubt say the camel Burberry trench coat. Loved and worn by everyone including Kate Moss, Sienna Miller and Alexa Chung, the coat, which dates back to 1869, deserves its crown. Now, every fashion house creates iterations each season, and every high-street brand we can think of has styles to choose from. So what makes the trench (or mac, as our mums used to call it) so special? The timeless cut, neutral colour and fuss-free silhouette make it suit, well, everyone. Add to this the fact it can work across all seasons, and you have a coat that can do no wrong.

We would even go as far as to say each and every one of you should own a trench. And this is why we’ve scoured the new-in sections of all of our favourite brands to find the versions that’ll suit everyone’s style, budget and taste (as long as you like camel, that is). So whether it’s Totême’s double-breasted beauty, Rejina Pyo’s puffy-sleeve style or Zara’s embroidered floral winner, these are the best trench coats 2022 has to offer.
