There is no denying the wardrobe staple that is the classic mac coat. Its never once gone out of style and remains one of the chicest things you could wear. Burberry is famous for its iconic trench coats/macs. Each season trends come and go but it takes real staying power for a piece to remain so prominent.

River Island have a gorgeous mac coat in it’s new Spring line. The description is so fitting – note the word traditional. This is a stunning Spring coat. Something that will serve you season after season. In the classic colour and all the key features. The double breast buttons and belted waist. This looks to be beautifully made.
A coat you cant go wrong with that will take you from day to night and season to season. Always snapped at Fashion Week and forever present in the wardrobes of the worlds most stylish ladies. Roll up the sleeves to add some street cool to the iconic trench. Wear this with leather or denim to toughen it up or closed up over your dress with heels doesnt take the look off you.
Being very fashion forward RI have also taken this classic piece and given it a modern twist. I have posted before about sleeveless blazers and how cool they are. Well check out this sleeveless Trench Coat. This look has been seen in some great street style and of course is styled in so many ways. As with the full sleeve version this is also an investment. You can always add a little jacket under if you need too. Or wear this as a dress?
Some inspiration on ways to wear and style this piece. The classic colouring goes great with another classic that is a breton stripe. The contrast works really well together while remaining very old navy traditional. Im a fan of this idea as wearing big stuffy coats isnt always ideal and you can end up overheated. In the same way ive loved faux fur gilets this winter. They give warmth but are also cool enough with just a long sleeve tee under. Especially for shopping. Love the look of the jacket closed up and cinched in at the waist to create a dress look. You wouldnt be out of place in paris. This trench will also give a nod to the utility chic trend which is gaining more and more popularity.
