What to look for in a classic-with-a-twist trench coat this season

Entrenched in the upper echelons of fashion design, update this classic coat with playful proportions, and a focus on the waist, to pull rank. The star of the season (worn by the street style set) is Loewe’s backwards trench with a metallic chest piece.

For those after more subtle twists on the classic, we suggest Alexander McQueen’s romantic over-blown silhouette, and Fendi’s belted number with silver hardware. Of course, Burberry is always a fighter for the trench coat — this season, it’s worn with long lapels and soft epaulettes on the shoulder.
