I'm a big fan of the fact this style staple is still a favourite - and that they've really not changed that much since the World Wars. It's, however, difficult to find the really classic ones to fit me, as I always need petite sizing for coats.
|F&F Limited Edition Full Skirted Mac|
Imagine my delight when I found a simple, full-skirted trench at supermarket fashion favourite, Tesco! For £40, I bought the petite version of this mac - I love the single-breast, defined lapels and, of course, the big skirt. Simple, elegant and just a little bit retro. You can also get this in a standard size in a pale blue version which I love - and right now on Tesco's site both the petite and standard versions are knocked down to a truly bargainous £28.
As the above picture doesn't really do this lovely coat much justice, here are the obligatory snaps...
Trench coat: F&F, Tesco
Dress: 'Super Spy Dress', Heartbreaker
Shoes: 'Ali Katelina', Clarks
Unlike most trench coats on the cheaper end of the scale, this one is fully lined with a cute floral pattern. It also is a true mac, as the outer material has that slightly plastic-y texture which means it's water-repellent.
