BY ANDREA – That awkward bit of the year as winter turns to spring can prove to be quite challenging. We are faced with tiresome springtime lethargy and changeable weather conditions, bringing us up-and-down temperatures and messy, windswept hair. During this troublesome time, what we really need is a high-quality transitional jacket that not only looks stylish, but also protects us from the rain, wind and cold. For you men out there, there is a choice of trusty classics that go with everything and come in a wide range of designs, meaning there is something to suit all tastes and styles.
THE TRENCH COAT
The trench coat came into widespread use during the First World War when it was worn by officers in the British Army to keep them warm in the trenches. Just a fun fashion fact for you there! 😊
There are countless trench coats available for men and they come in a range of different colours and lengths. I settled on a coat from my favourite brand Scotch & Soda. The olive-green coat can be teamed with a suit for a classic look or it can be worn over a hoodie and jeans for a more relaxed, cool vibe. For my outfit, I have simply combined a pair of navy chinos from J.LINDEBERG uwith a basic white T-shirt. I decided to jazz up the entire ensemble with some trendy shoes from the POLO RALPH LAUREN range.
On that note, I hope I’ve helped you on your way to finding your new favourite item of clothing! Happy shopping! 😊
