Shop the trend that fashion month attendees can’t stop wearing

As we reflect on some of Winter’s biggest trends, trench coats without a doubt dominated the fashion scene. From timeless silhouettes to futuristic outerwear, trench coats were everywhere and on everyone. But even as the cold slowly fizzles out, trench coats are shaping up to be at the top of every fashionista’s “keep” list for spring cleaning.

Though they were invented in the 1820s, trench coats rose to fame almost a century later as distinguishable garments for high-ranking officers during the first World War. Fast forward 200 years, and the trench coat has adopted innumerable cuts and water-proof fabrics. The continuous reinvention of this beloved wardrobe staple makes it eternally timeless, even as other fashion trends come and go.

All fashion month long, modern takes on classic trench coats have permeated our feeds. NYFW attendees, for example, rocked a myriad of trends, including denim maxi skirts, French berets, and dramatic footwear. But tying these eccentric looks together was- you guessed it- trench coats. 

While there’s still a chill in the air, consider snagging one of these trendy trenches. From leather to fur and every texture in between, these are the 10 best splurge-worthy trenches on the market right now.
