A glamorous fashion staple, the trench is an essential when it comes to layered dressing. This outerwear piece easily pulls together your outfit, adding a touch of elegance to both casual and elevated looks.

A foundational piece of any wardrobe, the trench’s structure and classic detailing offers a sense of versatility and ease. This means it will quickly become a favourite that ‘goes with everything’. A great investment piece, you will return to this jacket again and again, discovering new ways to style it with your existing wardrobe as well as trending wardrobe additions.

Due to its more lightweight feel and oversized fit, the Julie Trench is easily worn throughout the seasons. It can be layered up in winter with heavier knitwear or be thrown over an airy dress in the spring.

Keep things simple and chic when wearing your trench to the office. Layer your oversized trench with a little black dress and belt it to cinch in the waist. Complete the look with tall boots and your favourite luxe bag.

You can also wear a trench over suiting separates for a more formal workwear look, ideal for corporates offices and important meetings.

Throw your trench over everyday monochrome outfits and instantly elevate your casual separates. A fresh white shirt or tee and smart tailored pants provide a great base, while trending accessories and luxe slides finish the look.

3. Off-duty cool

 

For the weekend, layer your oversized trench with a tonal blue look and comfy slides. Choose light wash denim and a striped button up shirt for this ‘boyfriend’ style look.

Feel free to add more layers via a fresh white tank or tee underneath your shirt. This is a great style solution for a day with unpredictable, trans-seasonal weather. The secret to layering is all about using lightweight layers in a tonal palette and using the final layer as a statement piece.
