Anyone that knows me on a personal level knows that I am truly obsessed with coats and jackets. But seriously though this isn’t an “Omg I’m obsessed with those earrings obsession.” This is a “Marie we are holding an intervention if you buy another blazer” kind of obsession. Hey, the first step to fixing a problem is… buy another trench coat. Wait no, whoops… admitting that you have one? That sounds right.
One day, I found the perfect khaki trench coat from Brooks Brothers that sparked my love for coats. I love a good winter coat, but my favorite pieces to style and wear are trench coats. These light weight coats are perfect to wear all year round, and for that reason I didn’t mind spending a little more money on a high quality piece than I normally would.
However, with that being said, there are SO many affordable freakin cute trench coats out there that are just waiting to be purchased and loved. I have been eyeing a few of these gorgeous coats myself and thought that I would put together a fun roundup of my favorite pieces and looks of the moment.
Khaki trench coats are perfect to throw on over a pair of jeans and an oxford. Trenches add a polished look to any outfit and can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I suggest starting with a basic khaki trench and a basic navy trench that will give you more versatility than a graphic patterned one. Once you have your neutral bases covered, venture out into the world of patterns and get a little crazy!
