Style By Numbers

Style By Numbers

A seamless marriage of function and fashion, Burberry’s iconic trench coat epitomises all that we’ve come to expect from our outerwear: polish, practicality, and elegance to spare. First designed in 1912 by Thomas Burberry himself, the sartorial mainstay’s versatility is much affirmed – but for those who haven’t yet been convinced, read on…

1. Cocktail Hour

In matters of after-dark glamour, it’s the outside that counts – your outerwear, that is! No dress looks good with goose bumps, so cinch a gabardine trench at the waist to tease the silky little black dress beneath and make your arrival all the more arresting. 

HOW TO WEAR HARRODS | What’s eveningwear without an extra hint of glamour? Add some twinkle to your toes with a pair of embellished heels.

2. Neutral Territory

Out of the trenches and into the office, the once military-grade uniform now holds its own as a bulletproof boardroom staple. Let yours crown a mille-feuille of tonal layers, as per SS19’s ubiquitous champagne palette – Max Mara’s silk-infused suiting and sumptuous cashmere sweaters are the crème de la crème.

HOW TO WEAR HARRODS | Though not to be attempted in high winds, 'shrobing' (read: shoulder robing) capitalises on a trench coat’s fluid silhouette while infusing your ensemble with serious style kudos.

3. Off Duty, On Point

A trench coat’s work is never done… even at the weekend. Equipped to effortlessly elevate a pared-down wardrobe, bring the Burberry classic into the now by teaming it with slouchy-yet-sophisticated denim and a deliciously warming cashmere sweater. For extra points, harken to the style’s storied heritage, and anchor your look with boots made for stomping.

HOW TO WEAR HARRODS | Classic ensembles invite experimentation elsewhere. Make the most of the opportunity by trialling a statement eye or a bold ruby lip.
