Chic cheat: Pippa's M&S trench

Thanks to those oh-so iconic Burberry ads, the trench has reasserted itself as one of the most important items in any woman’s wardrobe, if not the most important.

Not only is a trench incredibly flattering thanks to the expertly placed belt, it is also lightweight and rain resistant, making a good trench an absolute must-have. The thought of battling summer showers without one is just too terrible to contemplate. Also, style icon of the moment, Pippa Middleton, aka Her Royal Hotness, has been spotted wearing what is the ultimate spring/summer coat, this Marks & Spencer Autograph trench, €120 . We think you deserve to treat yourself like royalty, so take a trip to Marks and bag yourself Pippa’s favourite coat.
