You don't have to be Sherlock Holmes to uncover the secret to always looking put together. It's elementary, dear: Simply top off your look with a sleek trench coat, and the chicness factor of your sweater-and-denim ensemble will multiply instantly. Because it accommodates a wide range of style aesthetics, the trench has lived a long sartorial life — pleasing everyone from army officers to fashion week attendees for a over a century. And, we have no intention of purging this jacket from our closets any time soon.
There's nothing we appreciate more than a piece we can wear in the spring and in the winter (layered under a wool coat perhaps). The trench's effortlessness makes it an #OOTD mainstay among bloggers. Ahead, see trenches of all kinds — from the classic Burberry coat to contemporary iterations — and how Instagram's best dressed wear 'em for the cold.
