Living in Chicago, you learn pretty quickly that the weather is fickle — especially this time of the year. Aside from not knowing whether it's going be warm and sunny or chilly and snowy, temperamental digits make getting dressed kinda tricky. So, when it's too chilly for just a sweater and not cold enough to sport that winter coat, opt for a happy medium: the classic trench.
Of course, we're not just talking about any ol' lapeled topper here. We've found a super-sleek trench from ASOS that can look as stylish paired with a work ensemble as with a pair of weekend jeans. Also, the tapered cut hugs your body (in a sexy way). All the great features are here: a monochrome print; a generously sized belt; side-entry pockets...and did we mention the price? Just under $70! Hey, we want summer to be here as fast as you do, but until it arrives, be prepared for whatever Mother Nature has in store.
ASOS Collection Square Mono Belted Trench, $66.50, available at ASOS.
