EVERYONE IS WEARING

The trench is back

By Lucy Glen, 10 May 2017

It's transeasonal, timeless and has featured heavily on catwalks this season. Yep, the trench is back, but this time with some not-so subtle updates. Céline, Lanvin and Balenciaga all showcased some serious reworking of the classic rain coat. We're talking sleeve drama, wide and off-shoulder looks, as well as breezy, oversized styles to belt up and go. We look at the coolest street-style looks, not to mention some celeb star power, too, smashing this autumn trend.

Clothes optional

Shunning the typical embellished gown for the Met Gala, actress Priyanka Chopra opted for this epic Ralph Lauren trench coat with actual train. No one said you had to wear anything underneath.

Chic off-shoulder

Matching hair colour to your trench coat: check. Shielding eyes from the paps in sleek sunnies: check. Wearing your trench coat off-shoulder with 'I woke-up like this' ease: check. Kate Davidson Hudson gets three out of three.

So right for RiRi

There's oversized and then there's RiRi-approved oversized. Giant cuffs and lapels that are about to take flight more than werk, werk, werk. Brb, checking boyfriend's wardrobe.
