LONDON’S inclement weather has ensured that the trusty trench coat has been elevated to a key fashion player again this season. But, unlike the Hollywood-ised moments we associate with mac styling – Audrey in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Meryl in Kramer vs. Kramer, Brigitte in Babette Goes to War – the show goers have been giving their belt-ups a grungy twist.
Enter the humble hoody. Made an editors’ go-to by Demna Gvasalia and the rise of streetwear brands, the way to wear hoodies now is not to the gym but underneath trenches, with the hood neatly positioned over the back of the collar. Take your style cues from Vogue’s Julia Hobbs and the other transitional layering experts at LFW.
