This week the weather has turned on us and we’re all left reaching for the coats and boots all over again. I refuse to listen to the people who are saying how bizarre this weather is though, many of my memories of late snowfall have been freakishly cold snaps in April and of course the traditional weather right now is April showers and sunny spells in-between. It’s enough to leave a girl unsure as to whether she’s coming or going, and when it comes to planning your outfits, it’s all about layering.
One eternally chic wardrobe staple however is the mac, perfect for spring showers and something every girl should have in her wardrobe. It’s an investment so don’t be afraid to spend some money, or if you prefer to wear your clothes to death consider looking for washable fabrics you can throw in to the machine. Here’s my edit of where to snap up a mac for spring.
- Black trimmed mac – MANGO £79.99
- Hobbs NW3 Wentworth Trench £189.
- Double breasted (short) trench, MANGO £49.99 (also available in navy and red)
- Cream raincoat, Oasis£48
- Full skirted navy trench, OasisNow £50 (from £80)
- Cotton trench coat, Burberry Brit at My-Wardrobe.com £595
If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop to try a few different styles, or want something a little more fashion forward, Zara comes up trumps again. The generous collars are very high-fashion and there are plenty of clever details like leather trims and swing backs if you don’t need a belt.
Of course, I can’t resist a splash of colour and there is simply nothing better on a rainy day than a pop of bright colour to cheer you up. All of these Macs are from ASOS and I’d go for any of them in a heart beat, but I’m really coveting the yellow 🙂
