Few items tick quite so many sartorial boxes as the definitive trench coat. However, for a timeless style that’s been around since the 1850s, the onus falls very much on the wearer to add a contemporary touch. Enter the M&A Cashmere Oxford Trench – Autumn’s hero fashion arbiter.
The chicest way to tackle the tricky trans-seasonal period. The Oxford Trench is made purposefully from the softest cashmere, consequently being lightweight but also substantial enough to keep out the autumn chill. As the lines between traditional finite seasons are increasingly being blurred, the longevity of a tenacious investment trench has inevitably become inherent.
Its relaxed fit is far from scruffy, tailored yet not overtly formal. Like a big neutral blanket, you can throw the Oxford Trench (with its unbiased tonal ease) over anything. Being not too heavy or stiff (avoid looking like go-go-gadget) with its wide lapels and longer length, the Oxford Trench is bang-on this season! For those of us who are several centimetres short of super model status, the flattering mid-calf length results in an ultra-modern look.
You won’t be falling victim to the wrong shade of beige, with the warm neutral chequered tones of the Oxford Trench keeping you on the cusp of chic transition between the seasons.
School yourself in these crucial trench teachings - whether you are wearing it oversized and deconstructed or cinching at the waist with its self-tie belt, the Oxford Trench flatters all shapes and sizes.
Pair with a feminine embroidered blouse to cleverly temper the sharpness of the trench coat, or wear over florals to soften a classic black/navy ensemble. Better yet, layer utility-inclined basics for a new season take on double denim.
