Dating back over 150 years, it was worn by Army officers during the First World War and eventually adapted to be worn in the trenches – hence the name. The outerwear garment clearly still has military influences today.

Both designers Burberry and Aquascutum claim to have invented the trench coat, and while the argument never seems to have been resolved, both continue to produce them today – along with a whole host of designers and high street names.

The trench coat is one garment that simply never dates. From all those years ago to today, you’ll barely leave the house without seeing someone wearing one. It’s also a gender neutral piece, adding a hint of sophistication to any outfit.

We’re currently enjoying that awkward period between summer and autumn, when the weather is average and our wardrobes feel tired. It’s never easy to work out what to wear in transitional periods, but the trench is pretty much made for it.

We’ve found 17 perfect trenches to see you through the remainder of 2021 and for years to come, with premium, leather, black and printed styles to choose from at an affordable price.
