It’s now the time of year when we have put away our winter coats and can enjoy all that spring has to offer: sunshine, flowers, and, of course, spring showers. This season is one of the most changeable of the year. The weather can go from a bracing chill and rain to bursts of sunlight all within one day. So what should you wear when the weather is so unpredictable? Two words: trench coat.
This timeless classic has been worn by Hollywood greats, including Audrey Hepburn in 1961’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Humphrey Bogart, and Marlene Dietrich, making a lightweight trench coat an iconic and essential part of anyone’s wardrobe. Trench coats are synonymous with the legendary British heritage label Burberry—with khaki shades and instantly recognizable check patterns that have lined their trench coats since the 1920s. Burberry has become a standard in raincoat style, spawning a legion of designs and inspired looks across a century. Its high price tag may not make the coveted Burberry trench a realistic buy for many, but that doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate the look into your spring wardrobe.
When the sunny days are just as likely to turn into windy, rainy ones, nothing less than a trench will do, since it offers protection from the elements in the most elegant yet easy-to-wear way. We have taken the groundwork out of hunting for the perfect trench for you with our roundup of the best women’s trench coats for spring.
