Would you believe me if I told you that I’ve never owned a trench coat in my life, even though I’ve been working in the fashion industry for the past decade… Well believe it because it’s true. The trench coat is not something I ever though I needed, but I succumbed to the hype of this ASOS Design trench after seeing it on various influencers on my Instagram – and I’m so glad I did.
Whenever I wear this trench coat I always get comments from people thinking its either Burberry or Aquascutum, little do they know it’s £85 from ASOS! This trench coat is so good even my nan’s trying to steal it from me (but I’m not giving in – sorry nan). I love the way they’ve reworked what you’d consider a traditional trench coat by having the checked pattern on the outside, and I’m always a sucker for a piece of outerwear that I can wear with numerous layers.
It’s 2020 and I’m wearing a trench coat, who would have guessed? We’re not only at the start of a new year, but we’re at the beginning of a new decade and it feels all the more promising and transformative. What are new thins you’ll be trying in 2020? It could be to do with fashion, food, work, health… Let me know in the comments section below!
