While we welcome the chance to wear a summer outfit made up of very few pieces during the day, we also love chilly nights — when the sun sets, cool breezes roll in, and we have a chance to ramp up our looks with interesting outerwear. Cropped spring jackets are solid standbys to be sure, but sometimes we want to elevate our look with a more classic and refined silhouette: the trench. Just think how great these longline jackets would layer against miniskirts or short shorts.
So, get a head start on your warm-weather trench coat game by taking a peek at some of our favorite iterations of this iconic style. Look beyond the familiar, belted camel topper (not that we don't still love a classic) and explore the variety of shapes, colors, patterns, materials, and styles you haven't seen, ahead. Let's get you in the trenches.
