Classic Trench Coats I’m Loving
I have a thing for trench coats. My first being my mom’s vintage Burberry trench coat that I still love and do not wear often enough. My goal is to one day own a classic trench coat in every single color of the rainbow. (Currently, I have a few in black, brown, tan, cream lace, red snake print, purple, and even a bright pink one.) The look of the classic, solid-colored trench coat is always going to be in style. Not to mention it instantly adds sophistication to your look. I recently picked up a Theory trench coat and now have my eye on this red one. This vegan leather-trimmed coat is also a staple to add to any wardrobe.
Now a traditional trench coat is a double-breasted raincoat with deep pockets, a wide belt, and straps on the shoulders. It got the name the “trench” coat because officers in World War I wore these types of coats in the trenches. The lapels, shoulder straps, and buckles all have specific purposes, but today they are mostly just ornamental.
I recently spotted a metallic trench coat that I’m determined to buy myself as soon as it goes on sale. There are a few wrap coats included in this post as well.
