Wardrobe Staple: The Trench Coat

April showers bring May flowers... or so the saying goes. it's officially spring, but it hasn't stopped raining yet in many areas, so it's time to invest in a trench coat to keep you dry in style. My coat closet is full of wool and leather but it is sadly missing a cotton blend trench, something I must remedy asap!

Camel, khaki, sand, beige, whatever you want to call it the classic trench comes in a sophisticated neutral and goes with dresses to jeans. Fashionable celebrities from Alexa Chung to Emma Stone have stepped out in classic Burberry trench coats, but lucky for us there are more wallet friendly options that look equally chic. Now that I'm talking about shopping, below are a few options on my mind in addition to this water proof hooded trench.

Burberry London Cotton-twill trench coat $1,495, A.P.C. Classic Trench $520, Iris & Ink The Perfect Cotton Twill Trench $240, London Fog Heritage Trench Coat $120* on sale, ASOS Classic Trench $96

If you already have a classic trench in your coat repertoire, try a new take on the style to make an instant statement. I love the idea of playing with shape and sporting a sleeveless or cropped trench. Another option is COLOR! Lavender, mint, yellow or metallic, no matter what you chose, there's no hiding when you brighten up this practical piece.
