A classic trench coat is the ultimate outerwear keeper – just ask a raft of royals from Kate Middleton to Meghan Markle, who all rely on theirs to keep them covered up come rain or shine.
A designer trench coat or high street mac is your ultimate transitional piece to buy now, especially as the weather is changing; it's lightweight, it's chic, it's practical and versatile – and did we mention waterproof too? (As long as you steer clear of a suede version).
