Spring Style: Why The Trench Coat Is Your Wardrobe Essential

E+A Lifestyle

No one can deny that the arrival of spring puts a smile on everyone’s face, but the new season heralds one tricky sartorial dilemma: the unpredictability of the weather. From indecisive temperatures to pesky April showers, knowing what to throw on before you walk out the door can be a nightmare. Thankfully, we’ve come to the rescue with a spring style icon that will transform your look. Here, we explain why the trench coat is your wardrobe essential this spring.


Totally trans-seasonal

Lightweight, waterproof and breathable, the trench coat is your best friend in spring when navigating weird weather. It repels random downpours and is light enough to keep you cool, should the sunshine decide to burst through.

Invented by Thomas Burberry in the 1850s, the humble trench coat has come a long way. At Emel and Aris, we’ve given it a 21st century remix with our far infrared heating technology. With self-heating panels that warm up at the flick of a switch, our Women’s Trench is the ultimate way to carry you through the temperamental temperatures of spring and beyond.


You can dress it up…

Enduringly timeless but also ultra-fashion-forward, the trench will always be in vogue. For a dose of glamour, that belt means you’ve got an hourglass silhouette to go with your evening dress or tailored suit, with killer heels to complete the look! If you fancy going full-on femme fatale, wear your trench as a dress with sheer tights and sky-high heels. Look to the runways for how to work it this spring: pop the collar, roll up the sleeves, or wear like a cape over your outfit and, voila, instant edgy-elegance.

With its utilitarian past, the trench coat is practical yet chic for stylish everyday looks this spring. Super versatile, it’s as appropriate over a tea dress and flats as it is with a Breton tee, slim-fit jeans and pumps. Rainy day? Pair it with leather leggings and smart boots. Team your trench with sleek separates and you’ll never lose; the style mileage from this classic coat is endless!

For a directional, day-to-day look, belt up your trench with a gap in-between the coat, revealing a tease of what’s underneath. Knot the belt rather than buckle it for laid-back insouciance or leave it entirely open with the belt fastened at the rear.

Make a trench coat your go-to stylish essential this spring. Our heated Women’s Trench is made from 100% LORO PIANA cotton and treated to be wind and rain resistant. Light enough to be worn through to autumn, it’s your perfect sartorial companion.
