It’s been ages since I wrote a Top Trend post so I thought it was about time I went back to my fashion roots and did a bit of virtual shopping on your behalf. Apologies in advance to your bank balance! I’ll be making Top Trend a regular feature again so make sure you’re following on social media so I can remind you to pop over for nosy!


The Trench Coat


The end of February means the beginning of spring…well, it does in the fashion world anyway! I’m hoping the weather Gods will get the memo soon. In the meantime, one of this season’s hero pieces is the trench coat which is perfect for transitioning between seasons. Trenches popped up on a few S/S 18 catwalks including Céline and Balenciaga. I’m so pleased this classic item is having a moment again. I have two, including this floral one from Joe Browns, that I love as they are always so flattering. I’m looking forward to dusting them off and packing away the waterproofs (yeah, right!).

For some the words “trench coat” conjure up images of a beige Columbo-esque flasher mac but I can assure you the reality is far more attractive! Here are some of my favourites…

I love the Yumi polka dot number and the yellow beauty from Girls on Film. Can you believe I don’t own a yellow coat? Shocking, I know.

While we’re on the subject of resurrecting old blogging habits, did you see I’ve started sharing my Dress of the Day on Facebook again?

Do you own a trench coat? Which of my picks is your favourite?
