How to work the perennial style staple for spring 2017.


Fashion is all about reinterpretation and even the basics need a seasonal refresh every once in a while. One style staple that's been reinvented more than most is the trench coat. The perennial must-have cropped up on the catwalks at all the major fashion capitals, confirming the trench's return for spring. From Prada and Hermès to Marni and Balenciaga, all the big guns touted the mac in their catwalk shows. Each collection placed its own personal stamp on this classic wardrobe essential.

Prada subtly tweaked the silhouette by buttoning the trench off to the side, offering a slightly off-kilter feel that hit all the right notes. Going a step further, others featured extravagant ostrich feather trimmings, fluffing up sleeves and cuffs. Elsewhere, the structured and clean design was revitalised with clever use of texture and fabric. On the high street, Alexa Chung offered up a patent trench coat as part of her second Archive collection for M&S.

The trench coat isn’t the only wardrobe staple that keeps on giving, as Emma Watson demonstrates in this classic leather biker jacket, arriving at LAX. Paired with a geometric printed mini skirt, her trusted Doc Martens and a simple top, it’s a win-win.

This lightweight formula conditions hair to make it touchably smoother and softer, while gently exfoliating dead, dry, itchy skin cells under your beard. Pracaxi oil and salicylic acid work to treat hair and skin, while a blend of cedarwood, sandalwood, and eucalyptus essential oils provides a fresh and woody aroma.
