How to wear the trench coat

A trench coat is a timeless piece for your wardrobe that will never go out of fashion.

Being French, we love a good trench here at La Redoute. They are fabulously versatile, so can be dressed for any occasion, and are effortlessly stylish too. They are also known for being transitional, so perfect through a winter through to summer look. What's not to like? 

Less is becoming more in the world of fashion. The idea of having a small, high quality and carefully chosen collection of classic pieces for your wardrobe is getting ever more popular. This not only benefits your bank balance but the environment too. See the La Redoute Icons to find out more about building your trusty wardrobe of staples! We've even put together a summary of some of the icons and a few different ways to wear them for some inspiration. 

The iconic trench coat is an essential part of a French woman's wardrobe and in yours too! Discover the different ways to style it right here.
