Spring is a weird time. It isn’t cold enough for a coat, but also not hot enough for just one layer. That makes it the ultimate trench coat weather! Personally, I think every woman, and man for that matter, should own at least one trench coat. There’s something about them that’s so sophisticated and classy. Even if you throw them with a pair of leggings you’re gonna instantly look chic! I love that! Throw on a pair of oversized glasses and you’ve winning at fashion!
A beige trench coat, is one of the most timeless pieces in the fashion world. From Jackie O, to Lady D, to Olivia Palermo, ever since it was introduced to the fashion scene, the beige trench has been a staple in every wardrobe.
It’s one of those pieces that’s worth investing in that will stand the test of time. Even though my current trench is not by no means an investment piece, I would love to be able to own one of the Burberry signature trench coats and then pass it on to my daughter.
That doesn’t mean that you should only own designer trenches! There are a lot of beautiful affordable trench coats nowadays. I’ve owned mine for about 3 years now, and got it back then on sale for less than $60.
The beautiful thing about trench coats is that they’re quite versatile. You can wear them casually or with a more formal outfit (think an LBD or LBJ & heels!). Pop the collar or pair them with a colorful scarf for Parisienne chic attire.
No matter what your budget is, a good trench coat will always come in handy, especially during the upcoming spring season.
