M&S dropped the perfect spring trench coat and we think Meghan Markle would be a fan

A trench coat is a spring wardrobe staple, something Meghan Markle knows well. The Duchess of Sussex has been pictured wearing one on multiple occasions from her Burberry trench to her Aritzia jacket.

Lightweight and waterproof, they’re ideal to wear in the unpredictable British weather and their classic style in often neutral shades will go with everything in your wardrobe.

Looking to invest but your budget doesn’t stretch to Burberry? You’re in luck as M&S has dropped the perfect new season trench coat for £75 or $135.

Pure Cotton Stormwear™ Longline Trench Coat, £75/$135, M&S


Made from pure cotton in a relaxed cut, it features dropped shoulders, a double-breasted front, and a pleat at the back for easy movement. The practical trench is fully waterproof and also comes with a detachable hood, detachable belt, and two large patch pockets.

Available in sizes 6-20 in beige or khaki, there are already lots of happy customers, with one writing “Beautiful trench coat, so pleased with the quality and the length.” While another said, “Lovely coat. Good length - covers everything. Good fit. Looks a lot more expensive than it was.” However, there are several comments that the coat runs large, so if you don't like an oversized fit, you might want to size down.

Meghan styles her trench coats with everything from jeans to sleek midi dresses. On her royal tour of Australia in 2018, the Duchess looked stunning in one of her most iconic, understated outfits - a Burberry Maythorne trench worn with a white Brandon Maxwell dress and nude heels.
