Last week on my Instagram, @_nathaliemartin, I asked for suggestions on cheap and cheerful trench coats. While I’m looking for a good piece that will last a few years, I’m not quite ready to invest in a designer piece so I gave myself a budget of about $100.
After searching online I kept going back to the coats on H&M. The price point is spot on and the cuts look perfect for spring - classic with a contemporary twist.
Eventually, I settled on the oversized trench for the simple fact that it goes past the knees and looks like some cool, oversized piece that might have come from the Olsen twins' closet.
It’s also made with 100% recycled polyester fabric which makes me feel good about going with a sustainable piece.
Finally, at $119 (CAD) the coat was just a bit out of my set budget, but I happened to have a coupon for 20% off after H&M had messed up a previous order.
SHOPPING TIP: H&M usually has sales on the weekends so look out for them if you want to save anywhere from 10-20% off.
At the end of the day, the waiting game paid off. I got a fabulous trench within my budget and I’m very excited about wearing it this spring.
