For a weekly dosis of fashion & lifestyle news, special deals & more exciting content!

Few things have the ability to rival an item you just purchased that is not only durable, stylish, gets the job done (whatever that may be), is relatively affordable and won’t cause you to question said purchase with doubt and regret mere moments or days after. And so begins the start of our new column on The Weekly Cut dubbed “The One Where/When/With” (fill in with the appropriate adverb). Launching this February, our team will aim to help you discover what we’re currently coveting and clicked “buy now” on. Whether it’s the latest face wash that blows out of the way any other product you’ve used before to clean your skin, that one style of boots you swear can be purchased on the high street as opposed to at a high-end price, that one plant that transformed the vibe of your home and also acts as a natural antidepressant, just to name a few. Welcome to the one thing you share with and text everyone about and influence to buy for their own pleasure too!

Dipping a toe into the water of fresh new arrivals and mere moments later you find yourself purchasing something you may or may not have needed to begin with. This week on The One we explore the ultimate piece of transition outerwear: a classic trench coat. As you can see below, we couldn’t just settle on one because there are so many good options out there. The only thing we did agree was a must is a timeless style and a neutral beige in terms of color.

Neither too light-weight or warm, a trench coat is the perfect companion for weather year round. Use it when travelling and you’ll get the perfect balance between dressed up and comfortable, throw it on over your work outfit and you instantly look polished, or put it on over a a black mini, opaque tights and a chic pair of booties for date night. A trench coat is as essential as a solid pair of jeans and white t-shirt; invest in a good one and you won’t need to worry about not having one for at least 5-10 years! Scroll through to look at our top 6 options.
