Chic Cheat: The Trench
The transitional trench will be the best bit of kit in your sartorial arsenal this season. Cracking the overcoat is the biggest challenge we Irish fashionistas face in our mild climate. Overkill in the overcoat department invariably leads to unsightly sweating; opt for underkill, and we are suddenly sporting mottled blue flesh and chattering teeth.
The 1970s are big this spring, and this gorgeously luxe silk trench from M&S will tick the trend box and lend every outfit that undone-chic vibe. Sling it on over a borrowed-from-the-boys white shirt, high-waisted jeans, and flats that channel 70s siren Jane Birkin.
