by Сашка

Here at Best Buys, we love a trench. 

They’re a timeless wardrobe staple that make any outfit look better, and also make for great trans-seasonal pieces that come in handy time and time again (particularly when you’re not sure if there’s going to be rain, wind, sunshine or storms, and the forecast is as confused as you).

So make like Audrey Hepburn (who loved a trench and wore a Burberry iteration in Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and snap up one of these style heroes now.

You’ll always find something unique at Free People and this quirky trench is no exception, with the brand having turned a classic, familiar item into something truly unmatched.

MAX MARA Ottico Belted Wool-Blend Gabardine Trench Coat

Yep, it’s a steep price tag, but you’ll buy this once and wear it forever, thanks to its quality craftsmanship, wool-blend gabardine and classic trench coat silhouette.

Fun fact: Gabardine fabric was created by Thomas Burberry in 1879 and is considered to be the fabric to make trench coats. It’s a high-quality fabric that is so tightly and densely woven that it becomes waterproof, and is also durable and hard-wearing to boot.

Burberry Heritage Trench Coat

It would have been a crime against fashion to leave the iconic Burberry trench coat out of this edit. The coat has been a much-loved piece of British history for over 100 years, being first crafted in 1916.

You can expect a nipped-in waist and classic A-line shape as well as incredibly chic detailing, including the epaulettes, belted cuffs and of course the vintage check design on the lining.

Faux Leather Trench Coat

We’ve seen both leather trousers and skirts trend this year, so why not add to your existing pieces with a faux leather trench?

More chic than a biker jacket (if that’s the look you’re going for), a faux leather trench is the ultimate cool girl addition to any wardrobe. We love this one for its long, almost gothic-like length, side pockets and belted cuffs.

Khaki Woven Hooded Oversized Trench Coat

An oversized trench coat is great for slinging on as you go out the door, over pretty much any outfit. 

This pretty khaki edition with its oversized fit and lapels provides a twist on the traditional trench with its useful hood, making it ideal for more autumnal days. 

Are trench coats fashionable?

There’s no doubt about it — they certainly are! 

Style icons throughout history such as the aforementioned Audrey Hepburn, and others including Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren were all seen frequently rocking a trench. 

Today, everyone from modern muse Alexa Chung, to models, actors and artists like JLo, Katie Holmes, Blake Lively and Bella Hadid have all been papped wearing a trench. 

The iconic coat has been at the forefront of both British and global fashion for decades, and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
