Celebrities flocked to Italy for the third stage of fashion month, last week, and their ensembles were quite amazing. With Milan boasting slightly warmer temperatures than New York or London, the street style scene proved also to be a great source of springtime outfit inspiration. Let's get our wallets out, because the leather trench coat will carry us through the tricky transitional season in serious style, as we've seen it worn by Kendall Jenner and Irina Shayk.
On February 21st, Jenner made the streets of Milan her own personal runway, donning the ultimate casual-chic fit that's bound to be everywhere come Spring. A pair of straight-leg, medium-wash jeans and a printed tee made up the base of her ensemble, while to round out her look and add an element of soft edge, the young celeb reached for a light caramel-coloured leather trench coat. The trendy yet timeless outerwear staple is crafted from soft, lightweight beige leather and has the perfect oversized fit; the addition of a removable waist belt, deems it the ideal winter-to-spring piece our wardrobe needs.
Then, on February 22nd, Shayk took her impeccable style to the streets of Italy, jet-setting to our country for Milan Fashion week, and she was seen arriving at the Tod's F/W 2019 runway show in black flare jeans, a black button-up, a dark caramel, double-breasted leather trench coat, Céline sunglasses and a blue, white and light-brown handbag, coordinated flawlessly with her coat. Useless to say, this outfit is also my favourite, for the warmer tones and Burberry-reminiscent style. What's more, she grounded her outfit with black gommino Tod's loafers, a pair that strikes the ultimate balance between comfort and style and effortlessly prove that heels aren't the only shoes with the power to take a look to new heights.
It's no secret that leather outerwear has been reigning supreme this pre-Spring season, since other celebs have all worn their unique take on the trend, but there's something about Jenner's and Shayk's latest finds that feels inherently classic and fresh at the same time. The neutral colours are softer than our average black leather moto jacket, while their versatile silhouettes and chic elevated design make them perfect for year-round wear.
