Love to look like your favourite fashion celebs but don’t know where to get their outfits? We’ve got your back. Steal these Burberry-inspired looks worn by Singapore celebs Yoyo Cao, Narelle Kheng and more... Yes, you can now easily wear a trench coat here.
When you see or hear the words ‘trench coat’, do you think of Dick Tracy, Sherlock Holmes and Burberry? We thought so. Trench coats have come a long way; we’re talking all the way from World War 1. To find more about the British fashion house, and the history of one of the most popular, classic pieces of fashion, we visited the current ‘Tales of a Trench Coat’ exhibition at ION Orchard where some of Singapore’s top fashionistas showed us exactly how you can wear a Burberry trench coat in Singapore to 1. Look super stylish, and 2. Not look silly in hot weather.
