COAT


Never have I welcomed rain with such joy. Between the sun, wind and occasional downpour its been pretty much a case of pot luck to know how to dress in Britain of late so, what better time to find this piece than in the transition of seasons? 





Lightweight, soft and timeless, H&M have answered all my prayers with this trench. They actually made a summer version of the coat for only £20 but I never even got to see it in the flesh, it was so highly sought after. Nonetheless £34.99 is still a good price, especially now the quality of the coat has been upped as part of their Conscious Collection. I am so sick of buying pieces that don't even withstand my washing machine - I'm learning the hard way that investment is key in staple pieces like this one. Layered under a leather jacket in the colder months or over a light jumper in times like today, it is so diverse and easy to throw on and I couldn't be happier with it, even if my bank card is crying like the sky.

I hope all my fellow Englishmen and women are fairing okay with this very testing weather, and here's to summer, it was good while it lasted.

Happy hump day
