Trench coats may be one of the most iconic garments of all time. From Sophia Loren in The Key and Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to more recently Kerry Washington in Scandal, the trench has made its way through cinematic history and everyday lives off screen. What is it about the coat that is so timeless, and that makes any outfit instantly chic? Perhaps it’s the simplicity of the trench coat design, with such clean lines and a trusted structure. Or, maybe it’s the practicality of a trench—easy to throw overtop any outfit and weather the chillier months. Whatever the reason, trench coats have been around for quite some time and do not seem to be going anywhere any time soon. From the ever-classic Burberry trench to newer models in a variety of colorways and with some embellishment, there is a trench for any and all shopper this fall. 

Instantly recognizable by even those with no interest in fashion, the trench coat is a statement within every wardrobe during the chillier months. As the temperature drops and in-person opportunities continue to rise, you’ll need something that can keep you warm without sacrificing an inch of style. Even if you suffer from the age-old conundrum of having nothing to wear, throw on your trench and voila, all problems are solved. Pair with a simple all black outfit to instantly make an elegant statement, or throw over streetwear to add some refined edge—the trench is as versatile as it gets and a necessity for wintry days ahead.
