Early Spring Means Hello Trans-Seasonal Clothing.
It might be cold but have you noticed the days are getting longer?
Earlier dawns and later dusks means Spring is coming.
And that means Trans-seasonal clothing: pieces that you can wear between seasons and nearly all year round.
The Best Piece Of Trans-seasonal Clothing Is The Iconic Trench Coat.
Cool, classy and oh-so stylish. There’s something luxurious about a statement trench.
It goes over anything, from a business formal outfit to a casual pair of jeans and cashmere sweater.
Wear a trench with a nonchalant air.
Wear it closed in rainy weather or simply throw it over your shoulders in a breezy manner.
What Is A typical Trench Coat?
– It’s made from a cotton gabardine drill (heavy duty outdoor cotton).
– It’s often shorter than a normal coat, but it can be any length.
– It’s mostly found in a khaki or beige colour.
– It’s double-breasted.
– It has wide lapels, storm flaps, wrist buckles and a belt buckle.
– It still looks a functional piece of outerwear
(its name is associated with its practicality in the trenches).

When it comes to colour, neutral colours are best. Sophisticated and en pointe.
Neutral starts with off-white and ends with greige (grey/beige) with all tones in between.|
Choose from tan to camel, from taupe to mocha and from stone to olive and khaki.|
CWC style tip: Getting a beige right is down to your skin tone.
Today’s trench coats are also available in a variety of colours, although I am not a fan.
CWC style tip: If you want to wear a trench in a fashion colour, keep it as your second one because the colour will date.
The Alternative Trench For Trans-Seasonal Clothing
Not everyone is a fan of the Trench coat.
And this year we see the Return of the Raincoat.
These are perfect for Spring, trans-seasonal dressing and when you want more than a jacket but not so much as coat.
They may lack the sassy look of a trench but they can look sleek and polished as they’re less bulky than a trench.
