Trench Coats

Update: This post has been updated on August 3, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

I think it has become clear why celebs absolutely adore the essential trench, and after all who can blame them? As a vital wardrobe must, this trench coat by Burberry is the ultimate classical statement with a contemporary twist. The silhouette is very flattering, framing the body and accentuating (and concealing) all the right places. Featuring leather piping, this adds a modern flair and truly brings a swanky feel to this highly coveted item. Though the price tag is quite steep, the steal below speaks for itself!

Warehouse Piped Trench

Update (08/02/2012): Check out this fabulous Warehouse trench coat I found on ASOS today. So similar to the Burberry trench, isn’t it? Love this one!

Wallis Tipped Belted Trench

Wallis is currently having a sale on this an amazing Tipped Belt Trench priced for only $88! As trench coat season is soon approaching, this one would definitely serve as a great transition piece plus make a staple in your closet. Also, if you’re against wearing leather, this may be a great alternative to the Burberry trench as it highlights a similar style without the leather piping.

I’ve been majorly obsessed with leather sleeved trench coats and jackets ever since Christopher Bailey sent them down the runway in Burberry Prorsum‘s Spring 2011 collection. Owning a Burberry trench coat is one of my biggest fashion dreams, but looking at price tags of $2.000 and upwards, I am not too sure this dream will come true soon.

W118 by Walter Baker “Keanu” Faux Leather-Sleeved Trench Coat

While I’m saving up for my first Burberry piece, I may or may not stray a little and get my leather-sleeved jacket fashion fix by opting for this Burberry-inspired trench from W118 by Walter Baker, which, at only $115 (sale price!), will save you more than $2.500 in comparison to the pricey Burberry Prorsum original. I absolutely adore this budget-friendly trench and would probably get the olive/black version, too.

Have we all noticed the vast increases of striped…anything? Pants, dresses, jackets, shoes – even bags. Everything comes in stripes this season. When I first spotted the bebe dress below I was instantly reminded of this absolutely gorgeous striped Burberry Prorsum trench coat from the S/S 2013 collection. To me it seems like the bebe dress is kind of inspired by the Burberry Prorsum trench. Do you agree?

Aaaand we’re back to stripes! My only excuse to show you this rather old revived (S/S 2012) runway inspired trench coat trend is a) my love for Burberry trench coats and b) my love for anything striped! Also, since we’re more than halfway through winter and slowly transitioning into trench coat weather, I wanted to give you an idea on how to update your outerwear for the upcoming springtime. Trend approved by fashion connoisseurs Miroslava Duma and Wendy from Wendy’s Lookbook.

‘Tis the season of the trench. One of the classic essentials to every stylish girl’s wardrobe, this must-have is a safe return on investment. You can wear it on any occasion; from going out over a cocktail dress or with jeans and a feminine blouse on a hot date. It will take you from the airport to an elegant dinner, and you’ll look just as chic. For a piece like this, it’s really important to look for quality. And quality is something the iconic Burberry Trench has, but spending over a thousand dollars isn’t the only way to invest. Take a look at our other option below.

Mango Double Breasted Trench

Lucky for those of us who are on a budget, great quality can be found at an awesome price – if you know where to look. This gorgeously tailored trench by Mango, pays homage to the original silhouette and close attention to detail with its tortoiseshell buttons and flattering seams (in all the right places). Ladies without trenches, at $159.99, this is surely a wise addition to your closet.
