I know, I know. It’s blazing hot outside (the high is 104 degrees today!) and the thought of coats is about the farthest thing from your mind, but we are nearly a quarter of the way through August which means September will be here before we know it. With it comes cooler temperatures (hooray!) and all those fun, fall clothes. In other words: it’s never a bad idea to start your closet prep a little early. First things first: a good coat. When it comes to classics, the Burberry trench coat is at the very top of the list. It’s an icon – one that will never go out of style – which makes it a good investment for any closet.
What is it about a trench coat that I love so much? For one, it’s the perfect summer-to-fall transition piece. When the temperatures start to drop but it’s not quite cool enough major layers, my trench coat is my go-to. It’s lightweight yet still provides the warmth I need. While this style is perhaps the most classic, there’s also quite a few other options from which to choose. One of my favorites is the “Balmoral” style. It’s made for girls on-the-go because it easily packs into a suitcase. (Burberry actually refers to it as the “packable trench.”) For something a little heavier, I adore this black cashmere version. No matter which style you choose, you can count on it working with every single thing in my closet. The trench coat is the definition of neutral. No matter what you pair it with – from jeans and a t-shirt to a fancy LBD – it just works. It gives any look that effortless, chic appeal we’re all after. What could be better than that?
