A trench coat is one of those Fall timeless items that is always in style regardless of what the season's trends are. Now the trick to selecting an item that won't go out of style is by staying away from overwhelming trends but you don't have to sacrifice your personal style in the process. Keep reading for some tips on finding a balance.
The classic trench coat typically comes in khaki/beige/tan but if you want to make a statement, switch up the color and go for a a pastel color like this blush trench coat from Asos for $87 or a darker color like this Burgundy Michael Kors option from Macy's on sale right now for $127.49.
Another way to add some flair to this classic look is by ditching the A-line/straight silhouette and going for something flared for example as pictured. I got this trench coat from H&M about 4 or 5 years ago so it is no longer available. But there is a similar one by DKNY available at Macy's in Black and a really cute Aubergine for $99.98 and another from Nordstrom Rack for $79.97 which comes in Black and Tan.
Because it is all in the details, consider some piping, cool buttons (which you could even DIY), a subtle pattern to put a spin on the look. Express has one with piped detail around the edges on sale for $103.60, and it comes in black and soft cream. Nordstrom also has one with a faux leather trim on sale for $129.90.
