The best kind of jacket is one that makes you look put together regardless of what you’re wearing underneath. And whether you’ve just rolled out of bed late for class or you’re up an hour early to primp, a trench coat will do the trick.
Because a trench coat is so nicely tailored, with details like crisp collars, waist belts and double-breasted buttons, it polishes off any look easily and with some seriously classy style. Plus, it keeps you warm and dry during the damp months at the beginning of the school year – when it’s cool, but not time to pull out the winter coat.
These trench coats are both machine washable and have a great neutral colour that goes with everything.
This ladies’ trench is flared to give an a-line hourglass shape. It looks great zipped up and belted, with an asymmetrical zipper, high collar and a stunning back with a little peplum flair to it. Leave it unzipped for a more casual look – and to show off what’s underneath if you actually had time to pick out a great outfit.
The men’s version is totally classic in khaki and a double button. The notched lapel and adjustable cuffs will make any guy look dapper, but the denim lining inside keeps it cool and fun. Button up for a more professional look or leave it undone for everyday (if it’s not too cold!).
