People in Paris and London Are Now Wearing Trench Coats in This Fresh New Colour

There was one common thread that wove together the showgoers at the spring/summer 2024 Fashion Week shows in New YorkLondon and Milan. Of course, they shared a lot of predictable traits; a love for mary janesleather coats and all things tailoring, but an unexpected commonality that we saw emerge across the fashion capitals was a penchant for all things grey.

In terms of neutral shades, beige has always been a go-to for its warm undertone and array of styling potential, but this year, the fashion set is shaking it up and opting for a cooler shade that offers a different potential to outfit builds. Welcoming cool-toned shades of grey and greige into into their wardrobes in a number of ways, there's one particular item that we saw rise above the rest in popularity amongst the fashion set at the show, and that's the grey trench coat.

Across New York, London and Milan (as well as all over our Instagram feeds) shoppers are exchanging their beige trenches for the new-season shade, wearing it in classic cotton or experimenting with leather designs.

In London, shoppers have only recently started gravitating towards shades of grey, but it's long been a favourite of the Parisian style set. Pairing harmoniously with denim as well as black trousers, the grey trench layers just as well over a white tee as its beige counterpart.

The grey trench comes into its own when unionising an outfit comprising cooler colours. Any shade of blue, green or purple will pop when styled with grey, and neutrals such as black, white and navy will continue to work seamlessly for a cohesive look.
