The look of a belted raincoat is iconic. A good trench coat can be worn for work, on the weekend, or for a casual outing and is the perfect transition piece between seasons. From the oversized collar, double-breasted placket, belted waist and cuffs, this classic is instantly recognisable. While Burberry didn’t invent the trench coat, the label had a huge part to play in its development and continued to refine and evolve the jacket into true beauty. The appeal and undoubtable style that follows when wearing a Burberry trench coat can easily enhance your wardrobe.

Trench coats can cost as little as $50 from cheap fast-fashion brands like ASOS or SHEIN to between $500-$1,000 upwards for upscale or even sustainable clothing brands. The important thing to remember is that you should expect to get what you pay for. While purchasing a coat from a fashion label known for quality like Mackintosh or Boden will last longer than your fast-fashion options. That being said there are exceptions (such as the Japanese retailer Uniqlo which has a reputation for quality).

Unfortunately, like many, I’m not about to spend thousands on one coat, no matter how fashionable. So, I’ve been on the search for affordable alternatives that I’m keen to share with you.
