30 Spring-Perfect Trenches Every London Girl Needs

Designed by Anna Sudit.
The temperature's rising to a nice tepid level and some Brits have been frantically calling the police station with reports of a large yellow orb in the sky. It can only mean one thing: the return of the mac, baby.

We Brits take our trench coats very seriously. As we should — we did invent them, after all. With spring finally upon us, it's time to break yours out of the wardrobe. Better yet, why not treat yourself to a new one?

While we never tire of the classic khaki model worn by trench enthusiast Alexa Chung, this season's offerings provide plenty of ways to maximise your mac. Play with colour and splurge on silk, or go bold with a jazzy print. There's simply no wrong way to wear a trench — so long as you wear one.
