The Jones + Jones office team are starting to get restless for spring to really blossom now…not only are we tired of Â the wind and rain but we’re oh-so tired of our winter wardrobes too. Wearing a thick wool winter coat can be comforting but sometimes you still want to look feminine and show off your curves without braving all of the elements in a dress, especially for a night out or a dressier occasion. In answer to this outerwear conundrum, the Jones + Jones Design team created Â a fresh, very feminine yet still incredibly chic Trench Coat. Not only is it oh-so-pretty to look at but it is also manufactured Â so it is water resistant as well!
The Jones + JonesÂ Paris Trench Coat is currently available in black with a black and white striped lining and in beige with a charming light brown gingham lining. Practical and pretty, it is perfect to go over our pleated dresses and skirts or your favourite skinny jeans.

Trench coats never go out of fashion and to prove my point trench coats and pleats have been spotted on the A/W 2011 runways at LFW already! They are an investment piece that will take you from spring right through to winter (especially if they’re water resistant!).

The Jones + Jones Trench Coat comes complete with a detachable belt made from the same material as the coat so that you can tie it into a huge bow,Â accentuating your waistÂ or leave it loose for a more casual look. However if you want to add your own personal twist to the Jones + Jones Trench Coat, add your own choice of belt… look to Burberry Prorsum (how could we discuss the wonders of outerwear without featuring Burberry somewhere!)Â and Margaret Howell’s A/W 2011 collections for inspiration…

Topshop have done a nice plain brown leather belt with a slight twist on the stud detail with their chocolate three stud leather jeans belt but if you’re looking for something more feminine, weÂ love the silk stretch Cornelli belt from Jigsaw, available in black or our favourite berry red – it would be perfect for a glamorous night out. For a more day time look with abit of stretch, the tan square buckle elastic belt from Topshop is perfect!
