Spring is coming! I swear it is. They say that March comes in like a lion, but out like a lamb, so if the winds are still blowing and the snow is still falling, know that it will be over soon. So maybe it’s time to transition from your fugly Michelin Man coat to a stylish trench coat for spring!
Just do me a favor, please? Don’t bore me with your trench coat! A classic camel is always in style, but rather yawn-inducing. Try a color or a new shape, like the ones below.
This is as close to classic as I’d go. It’s got the camel color of a basic trench, but the ruffle detail makes it adorable and fun. It has a hood that makes it more casual, and also that will protect you from any April showers.
Trust ModCloth to be doing something in a print! You’ve got a whole flock of birds flying across a dark blue sky in this trench.
The color on this is perfect to cut through the gloom of a rainy day! The bright turquoise of this trench sets it apart, along with the pleating along the back of the coat.
No belt and lots of buttons! Converse’s cotton hooded trench is perfect for a Sunday afternoon’s casual downtown stroll through the shops. The buttons are in excess, yet still just right.
Trench goes glam! There are a lot of leopard prints out there, but this is in the best of taste. The flared style and narrow belt make it retro (you know we love it retro around here!). I think it would be perfect over a full-skirted dress with a gorgeous pair of heels.
My favorite of the bunch! It would almost be enough if it were just bright red, but then add in the accordion pleats on the sides, and then a belt that ties into a bow at the front? ADORABLE. It wins my heart.
To trench, or not to trench? Do you indulge?
