The trench coat - big trend for spring summer 2010

The trench coat, a military style jacket associated with investigative dramas and spy thrillers like Sherlock Holmes etc. should be on your hot list this spring summer. The trench is a classic coat that never goes out of style so you can consider it part of your capsule wardrobe. I love how it cinches at the waist to provide shape and structure or can be worn open for a more casual appearance.

With the trench coat being one of my must haves for this spring summer 2010, I have been doing a bit of window shopping online to see what I like. Here are some hot picks variations of the trench coat available on the high street in order of my favorites.  I am in love with the first one, the black print wrap mac by Jaeger Square.

What did the catwalks have to offer in terms of trenches? Well Burberry, though last on the catwalk at London fashion week, led from the front with the trench coat trend. One guess as to the favorite colour for this trend. Yes neutral, neutral, neutral!!!!

Now that it looks as if the long bitter winter is behind us finally we can put away those woolly jumpers and thick winter coats and bring on the lightweight jackets and coats. I have had my suitcase of spring summer clothes in my bedroom for weeks waiting to clear our my winter wardrobe and bring out the summer clothing.  I think I will be spring cleaning my wardrobe tonight.
