High Street Pick of the Week


I was slightly loathed to post on trenches as you know what they look like, have your own preferences etc. Then I spotted these in M&S last week and thought how good they were in cut, price and versatility. I don't think this trench is an everyday piece but it is perfect for weekends away (remember mini breaks!) and exceedingly useful for the city on a wet day. It is made of that material which allows you to fold it up and stuff in a bag and it sort of un-creases itself.

At £35 it falls into bargain! Whilst not wishing to be prescriptive I would opt for the pebble or black as a colour choice with blue and aqua as alternatives if you want colour. The green, hot pink and lime are a bit hideous in my view.

  1. That is a bargain! I actually quite like the pink, wouldn't wear it, but it looks nice in the photo.

  2. I looked at this last night, online, when I was searching for something else. It is a great buy and I think perhaps I should have bought this instead of the Kalico one I got, as I prefer something shorter.

  5. I spotted these when wandering through M&S last week on my way to pick up some Percy Pigs.
    I rather liked the green version (for my mum rather than me). They may have their critics but Marks and Spencer never fail to deliver good pieces at decent prices.

  7. That is a bargain. I'm still undecided - Summer trench or Summer parka?? Think I'm more of a oarka gal at heart.

  8. I'm glad you're still blogging - I was off-line for a couple of days. You say what you want to say and if readers don't like it they can go read something else on the net xx

  9. I see a lot of pink (light and pastels) trench coats lately. A new trend?

  12. i have adored the pink coats i've seen lately. i bought a teal trench last fall which is kind of, sadly, unfortunate on me, and hasn't left the house :(

  13. I have seen a trench coat in this colour, and also an organgey red at a local store called Temt - it is $60 AU - I really want to buy it. You have inspired me to do so.
