If there were one fashion item that I associate with England, it is the classic trench coat. Beige, Burberry-inspired, structured and chic. It's the thing you want to be wearing as the wind is blowing and the rain is threatening. Classic England. You can pull that waist strap just a little tighter and tuck your scarf right in. Back when Luke and I were toying with the idea of moving to England, I always thought that a trench coat should be my first purchase to commemorate the decision.
Well, that didn't happen. Wedding and visas and moves are expensive! So, it made me all the more excited when Tobi sent me a classic trench. It has definitely been a staple the last little while, especially as the weather has stayed quite moderate.
If you're in the market for a coat like this, I'd say it fits true to size if not a little big. Nice when you have a bunchy and comfy sweater underneath. For dresses at Tobi, if deviating from the regular sizing, I tend to go up a size as they can be on the short side. Cost wise, watch out for the deals! And/or... 50% off your first order.
So I'll be the one wearing this coat for as long as I can get away with it.. before the parka comes out. We wear those over here too :)
