Steep vs Cheap: Elizabeth and James Bogart trench

Continuing our affinity with all things midnight-blue, we’ve moved on from the leather satchel to wax lyrical about spring’s coolest cover up: the trench coat.

This staple piece combines effortless style with the comfort of keeping snug on chilly spring days. Slightly offhand in this deep sapphire hue, we love how the trench weaves itself naturally into our spring wardrobe, working well with skinny jeans, heels and a cross-body bag in the day or over a pretty cocktail dress for a chic, evening cover up.

We’re seriously coveting Elizabeth and James’ Bogart twill trench, complete with a Far Eastern kick thanks to the kimono style belt-up and ruched half sleeves.

Creating an elegant, cinched-waist silhouette, we want to pop this over a perfect summer soiree cocktail dress, teamed with contrasting heels and a clutch for instant, laid-back chic with a glamorous edge!

But boasting a flashy price tag of £530, there’s one thing this trench is sure to break – the bank balance.

Enter high street saviour Topshop’s equally stylish and inexpensive steal. We love the same midnight glamour it delivers at a fraction of its expensive equivalent’s price. We’ll be dressing ours with skinny jeans, a crisp white shirt, and towering sandals for unflappable city-girl cool with an insouciant edge.
