If you don’t currently own a trench coat, I insist that you run, not walk, and purchase one immediately! A trench coat is the perfect outerwear for those transitional days between seasons when layers are still necessary. Why is the trench so important you ask? Well, for decades this coat has proven itself as a classic outerwear essential. It is just as chic and sophisticated today as it was for Jackie O in the ‘60s. You can’t go wrong with a traditional tan, double-breasted trench coat. But this spring, why not mix it up with new style like a sleevless version, bold prints and colors, or relaxed silhouettes? Whichever you choose, trenches are chic, polished, and practical and exactly what you need to wear this season. Whether you choose the traditional khaki or a colorful trench, here are some of my favorite styles to inspire you. Just don’t forget, there is no better trench than a Burberry one!
