Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

IF YOU BUY ONE
THING THIS SEASON…

Make a trench coat your go-to for the bank holiday weekend and beyond. It’s the ultimate transitional piece for guaranteed chic, come rain or shine

Few wardrobe wonders can claim the enduring appeal of the classic trench coat. Up there with the black biker jacket, the Breton top and straight-leg jeans, the trench is perennially stylish. But what makes ours so special? Besides being hardwearing and versatile, M&S trenches boast savvy design features to take on our famously fickle British weather: think water-repelling technology, detachable hoods and fleece linings. Slip on over a T-shirt and cropped trousers for a gamine approach, or cinch at the waist to dress up for evening. Lightweight fabrics make light work of hot August days, but even if your bank holiday is a washout, at least your style doesn’t have to be.
