WHEN THE TRENCH IS YELLOW… as here by Arthur Arbesser, then the sunshine isn't far behind. At one time, the qualities that made it important were its weather withstanding properties and a cut that wasn’t restrictive. Thomas Burberry presented the coat in 1870 sewn with a gabardine for military use: In WWI it was worn by British and French soldiers. It was uncomplicated, had tabs for adjusting, loops for binoculars and knapsack straps to attach to. The name – trenchcoat – stems from the English word "trench."

Today it is an enduring classic, a brilliant piece for the front row in peaceful times. With a designer makeover, the trenchcoat remains uncomplicated and gets the must-have update in bright shades of colour, in boho elegance and with a breezy lightness. No wonder that it is the trend piece of 2020! New this season, is a fresh trench style just for ladies– that works also for short styles: as a cool jacket!

Incorporate this trench trend for spring with this pretty cool casual jacket look. It has a rain flap accent on one side, a cased waistline, then finished off with a tying belt. Ties at the sleeve hems bring the look together. Style this in a clean look by wearing it with a plain top and with a pair of tailored slim-fit trousers or jeans.

Those transitional months while you wait for the summer heat can bring some chilly days and night - so this trench jacket pairs perfectly over a printed maxi dress like this one. Top off with a sleek pair of tortoise sunglasses and you are ready for patio drinks in the sun.

When the trench is sewn in a vibrant color like yellow you can really have fun pairing it with neutrals like black and white. But you can even have more fun with your neautrals and we love the mix of stripes and polka dots in this skirt and complimentary T-shirt. To add an extra bit of pop, match your shoes to your trench.

Maybe sew this jacket in a daring silk satin pink with a textured finish or in a re-fined grey-green (water re-pellent polyurethane) for different looks.
