Spring Wardrobe Essentials: The Trench Coat

Trench coats are equally as glamorous as the stars who made them so classic. What would the ending of Breakfast at Tiffany’s be without Audrey Hepburn in that classic khaki trench? Or Humphrey Bogart’s final adieu in Casablanca? As much as the rain and fog helped make those end scenes iconic, the trench coats are really what the audience remembers. Or maybe it’s just us?

Either way, owning the crisp, timeless trench means having the perfect accessory to the in-between seasons. It’s regularly rain resistant and because it’s frequently made out of breathable cotton, the humidity that comes with the rain won’t have you sweating through your coat. In fact, cotton is one of the few fabrics that becomes stronger when wet.

Don’t know where to look for your own trench? We’ve assembled a few of our favorites below to help get you started. And find our other favorite key pieces for both men and women on the shop now.
