The £165 French Connection trench coat that you can wear three ways and will transform your wardrobe
You wouldn’t believe how many items of clothing I get pitched each week. All promise to ‘transform’ my wardrobe. Few do.
So, when French Connection’s three-way trench landed, I was sceptical. A sleeveless coat, cropped jacket and trench?
‘It’s a clever idea,’ I venture as we unpack the sample.
‘Is it, though?’ asks our French picture editor, raising an eyebrow.
The French Connection trench coat, £165, can be worn in three ways: as a sleeveless coat; as a cropped jacket; and as a classic trench

But her Gallic cynicism is misplaced because not only is this piece clever, it’s very chic, too.
‘We’ve got ourselves a munte (much nicer than expected, if you’re wondering) piece,’ I cry, dancing into my editor’s office wearing the sleeveless segment. Ed agrees. She loves the sleeveless iteration, too.
So, I thought it only fair to share my find with you. I reckon this one might actually transform your wardrobe. Maybe.
