It might not feel like it but spring is just around the corner and, whilst it might be hard to believe, warmer days, prolonged sunlight and the renewed will to step outside is only weeks away.

To get me in the springtime spirit I’m retiring my raincoats a little early in favour of a new season jacket trend that offers versatility, a classic twist and an undeniably chic finish to every outfit. Whilst the cropped trench coat trend has been lying dormant for a few seasons, outshone by its popular older, long-hem sister, this season fashion people are reassessing their wardrobes, with an eye for fresh silhouettes and easy-to-style staples leading their decisions. What’s more, the term “cropped trench coat” is suddenly spiking in Google searches, so there’s clearly a broader appetite for them. 

Falling to hip or waist height, the cropped trench coat offers a statement yet elegant element to an outfit that will work hard to elevate the feel of your favourite blue jeans or wide-leg trousers. With a naturally boxy cut, this lightweight jacket is ideal for transeasonal layering, styling well over a roomy knit or layering neatly with a scarf.

Whilst I’ll call upon a cropped trench coat to whip a casual outfit into shape, the fashion favourite looks sleek styled with an elegant dress, or paired with a fit-and-flare skirt, too.  To shop the new-season spring trend that the fashion-crowd is already banking, read on to discover our edit of the best cropped trench coats to buy now.
