The trench coat has been in vogue for over a century (think Casablanca and Breakfast At Tiffany’s), and it is still the most timeless fashion essential in your closet. While the classic look of heavy cotton-gabardine with the trademark storms flaps, buckles and belting remain on most syles, the silhouette has moved to a modern and more forward look with many more color choices than the classic khaki.
With spring just around the corner and, hopefully, winter weather moving to our rear-view mirror in the near future, it’s time to gear up for the time you can put away your puffers and parkas, and invest in a stylish, classic trench coat. Here is a compilation of our favorite pieces.
