This is hands-down one of my favorite weeks so far in this series. I’ve had a long standing love affair with trench coats dating back to the first one I owned in college. And I’ve fallen even more in love with them every year, so much so that I just added three more to my collection for spring.
You might recall that last week, I narrowed down my three favorites and then asked all of you to help me pick one on Facebook. Even though there was a clear winner (which I will reveal later), somehow I ended up buying all of them and haven’t regretted it for a second.
If you don’t yet share my affinity for trench coats, maybe this will change your mind.
Three Reasons Why You NEED a Trench Coat
- They will never, ever go out of style. A good trench coat lasts forever.
- They’re incredibly versatile and can be worn with skinny jeans and flats, dresses and heels or anything in between.
- They pull together any look and add a touch of chic like nothing else can.
Convinced? Good, because I have a lot of shopping options and inspiration for you today. Even though trench coats are absolutely worth the splurge, this is a budget friendly blog so I tried to keep all of them under $150. Fortunately, there are some great sales going on right now and bargains to be had!
Classic Khaki Trench Coats
The quintessential favorite – khaki trench coats are the gold standard. This is the place to start if you’re a trench coat virgin. A classic khaki trench goes with everything in your closet and works for most seasons.
This one wins my all around favorite in this category. The length, style and color are timeless and the details are beautiful (click on the image to see them). The best part? It’s on sale for 33% off which makes it a great deal for this quality!
Here are some other great options in the classic khaki category.
I’m sort of loving this trend, it combines the best of both trench coat worlds – khaki and black. Here’s the first of the three new trench coats I bought for spring.
Of the three coats I picked, this is the one I thought I would be sending back. Instead I was BLOWN AWAY by the quality. The first day I wore it, I got three compliments from total strangers. It’s lined in light fleece so it’s the perfect trench for cooler days and will be great for fall as well as spring. The bad news? It’s out of stock as of yesterday, but I’m hoping it comes back!
Here are some other options that are in stock.
Bright and Patterned Trench Coats
Brights and patterns have been all the rage in trench coat trends for the past few years. I bought my coral trench coat five years ago and it’s been one of my favorites ever since. It is definitely a staple of my spring style year after year. You’d be amazed at how versatile this color is, it goes with practically anything!
This one is a great deal at 40% off!
Another great deal! I love the contrasting trim and relaxed look of this coat.
This utility trench combines the best of two trends – it’s 40% off too.
Here are some other fun brights for spring.
This sunny yellow trench is 40% off.
Try out the color of the year with this radiant orchid trench with a detachable liner. It also comes in petite sizes and is a steal at 40% off.
The second new trench coat I added to my spring collection is this fun yellow and white printed topper from Target. I threw it on over my gray, yellow and black outfit yesterday and it was just perfect!
In my Facebook poll, this striped coat came out on top. You loved the stripes (and price) and so do I!
Here are some other cute patterned trench coats.
