In collaboration with Jack Wills
Summer may have finally graced us with its eagerly-awaited presence but that doesn’t necessarily mean it is here to stay. As much as we’d love to spend the next few months complaining about the excessive heat – we’re British, we want the sun when it’s not here, and not too much of it – there will undoubtedly be more than one occasion on which we require a trusty jacket to take us through our unpredictable summer months. In comes the classic trench coat.
Lightly structured, in colours ranging from camel to military beige and – most importantly – rainproof, this iconic wardrobe staple is a must at the forefront of our closets this summer. Whether taking in the beauty of the countryside or celebrating with evening cocktails, the classic trench is a jacket for all occasions and almost every outfit. Jack Wills have helpfully put together a chic guide on how to style a trench coat to show you just how versatile this piece of outerwear is.

For petites like myself, the Dollyhill Swing would be a perfect adaptation of the classic style – partly swing coat, partly trench, the length is just right to avoid too much material. For those who are looking for even more of a twist, this style comes in two additional shades – a rosy pink and pastel blue. Wear yours pink like Liv Purvis from What Olivia Did and team with blacks and greys for a modern take, or take further inspo from the guide!
With so many different ways to wear a trench coat, Jack Wills have put together the best guide on styling one, and with seven options to choose from on their website, every fashionista can find that dream one.
