11 spring trench coats to buy now and wear forever

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle adore a trench coat for spring, and we do too

Carla Challis

A classic trench coat is the ultimate spring jacket – just ask a raft of royals from Kate Middleton to Meghan Markle, who all rely on a trench coat to keep them covered up come rain or shine. And the high street's best trench coats are going to be your BFF this spring, acting as the cover-up of the moment for the multitude of walks we're all going on!

And a trench coat is an all-occasion babe too, the best jacket for throwing on over jeans, dresses, workwear, partywear, loungewear…you name it, a trench goes. Don't worry if you're not so keen on a traditional trench coat in camel – they look equally as cool in black, navy and khaki too.
