. . . BACK TO REALITY
Looking anywhere near stylish when the pavements spit puddles at the back of your legs isn't easy. This mini trench coat won't solve those problems, but it will make the top half of you so like Marlene Dietrich, Lauren Bacall or any of those other ballsy and fashionable chicks that it really won't matter. This is a really top buy: it is modern, cut well, looks great, and yet is not so screamingly trendy that you will be embarrassed to wear it next year. It will suit you if you're a teenager (wear with knee boots and a little bag) or a bit older (wear with knee boots, or trousers and ankle boots, and a bigger bag). AB
Shiny double breasted mini trench coat, pounds 99, Fenn Wright & Manson, call 0171 323 4821 for stockists.
