Many a fashion expert will tell you that a trench coat is an essential part of every woman’s closet—after all, it is timeless, it works in both spring and fall, and it never fails to up your style ante, as evidenced by actress Emma Watson, who was spotted out and about recently in a Burberry Bespoke trench coat. If the aforementioned reasons aren’t enough, consider this: for today’s Top Buys story, we have rounded up four of the most stylish trenches on the market and we have something for every budget! On that note, we present Top Buys: Spring Trenches! Read on!
1. Twill Trench Coat ($1,195) by Burberry
As fashion fans, you no doubt know that Burberry is known for its collection of classic trench coats. While the traditional Burberry trench coat comes in a neutral taupe color, we really like this black iteration. It is sleek and sophisticated and, because it is black, it will go with almost everything in your closet. We recommend pairing it with a body-conscious dress and killer heels for a night out on the town. For a casual look, try layering it over a simple slouchy sweater and adding your favorite pair of skinny jeans.
2. Bogart Twill Trench Coat ($595) by Elizabeth & James
Leave it to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen to design a trench coat we just have to have. What do we love most about it? Let us count the reasons! Firstly, the navy blue fabric is a great way to veer away from classic black without taking a huge risk. Secondly, we love how the Olsen twins have given the classic trench silhouette a modern twist by using a kimono-style silhouette. Finally, the shorter sleeves make this a piece you can use on those Indian summer nights. What else could we ask for?
3. Double Storm Flap Trench Coat ($180) by Topshop
While there are some of us that love to stick to neutrals, there are others who love a pop of bold color. What better to mix classic with color than via this gorgeous peach trench coat? Not only do we love the fitted silhouette, but we also adore all the tiny details that make this coat so cool—the double storm flaps, the cuff buckles, the belt, and the black buttons. We suggest you pair this coat with a little black dress and black platform pumps for a playful dose of color.
4. Classic Trench Coat ($49.95) by American Eagle
Naturally, we couldn’t put together a story on trench coats without including a classic beige iteration. While this particular trench coat pays homage to the traditional color and silhouette, it still has plenty of modern qualities that make it oh-so now—from the military-inspired buttons to the peaked lapel to the tie-and-go waist belt. But the best thing about this coat is its budget-friendly price—not only is this coat an investment piece that we’re sure you’ll use time and time again, but it is a totally guilt-free purchase!
