Trench coats, because you definitely need one

When it comes to buying clothes that are universally classic, and more importantly coming into winter, your wardrobe absolutely requires a cool trench coat. Because what's more timeless, right?

Made famous when it was manufactured by heritage Brit-brand Burberry, the trench coat has been an iconic wardrobe staple since way back when. 1879 to be precise.

Step out in a chic ensemble wearing your trench with skinny jeans, boots and a white tee or overtop a summer dress with shades, we've handpicked our faves for you to shop below plus a round up of online fashion retailers delivering the trench coat goods.


"The history of the trench coat is functional - it was designed for wartime. Everything was designed for a reason, which is why it is so beautiful and why it has become a design classic."

- Christopher Bailey, Chief Creative Officer at Burberry.

~ FAQ ~

Can you wear trench coats in the rain?

A trench coat or trenchcoat is a raincoat made of heavy-duty fabrics that are typically waterproof. You'll often find they're made of cotton gabardine drill, leather or poplin. A classic design will feature removable insulated lining and raglan sleeves. You can buy trench coats in a variety of lengths ranging from full length (above the ankles) to mini (above the knee). 

Why do they call it a trench coat?

The creator of the modern day raincoat, Thomas Burberry, coined the term early in the twentieth century after he invented a new water-resistant fabric called gabardine. The trench coat was worn by officers of the British Royal Army during World War I to protect them from the weather conditions.
