Just when you think you’re tired of trench coats (or the rainy days that force you to cover up your outfit), Sea of Shoes blogger Jane Aldridge finds a way to put a spin on the outerwear staple. Jane, along with her equally fashionable mother Judy, has teamed up with Gryphon to design the über-cool Aldridge Trench that’s perfect for those rainy days on Oxford Street!
Jane and Judy used military chic to update the look, using a double-row of gold buttons down the front. To show off that itty-bitty waistline, they’ve added a grommeted belt with a detachable leather pouch that’s perfect for carrying everyday essentials. And for some feminine flair, the Aldridge duo topped off their creation with some flirty bell sleeves that can be rolled up in a cinch.
On top of the genius styling, the trench is also water repellent. Pretty and practical – what else could you ask for?
