When it comes to coats, you have your parkas, your faux furs, your pea coats and your swings, but the one that has made its mark throughout history in movies and amongst the fashion elite is trench coat fashion.
The trench is the coat that stands out by not standing out. It’s mysterious yet forthright. It’s masculine, yet sultry. You can dress it up or dress it down. It’s functional, versatile, and just plain chic.
Think Marlene Dietrich in Witness for the Prosecution, Catherine Deneuve in Belle du Jour, Audrey Hepburn in Charade and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and Bette Davis in Of Human Bondage. The trench has a reputation to uphold, and it does so beautifully, whether short, mid-length or long.
This year, the trench coat fashion trend is in full swing – and with cooler (and wetter) weather approaching for many of us, let’s use that as an excuse to get our trench fix. Here are a few of the styles that caught our eye this season.
