THE clocks have gone forward, marking the start of spring, and the sun has made a brief appearance. But don’t be fooled; we’re not past the cold spell just yet. Don’t get caught unprepared or allow the ever present threat of a downpour to cast a cloud over your outfit choices, for there is a silver lining. From trench coats to macs, outerwear has never been stronger and there is enough variety on offer to make sure you don’t have to compromise on style. If you’re after something classic, invest in a Burberry trench. The simple design is timeless and will hold you in good stead season after season. For a more off-duty option, follow Steve McQueen and go for something like Belstaff’s iconic waxed cotton motorcycle jacket.
