Outerwear can prove to be more of an investment than, say, a trendy dress you buy for one season. Coats last through many seasons and hopefully years, depending on their durability and ability to transcend the waves of trends. When you consider buying a coat this spring, we recommend choosing something that will not only physically hold up through time, but that will remain a solid fashion statement.
Unlike virtually every other type of garment ever, trenchcoats never fall out of style. Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn, Catherine Deneuve, and modern celebrities such as Maggie Gyllenhaal and Kate Hudson all have rocked the trench. Paired with jeans, sundresses, trousers, you name it–it’s been done, and it looks great.
