Spring Trench Coats

Screen Shot 2015-03-23 at 8.24.34 PMIt is that time of year to get into the trenches – trench coats that is.   From Wikipedia comes the origins, “A trench coat or trenchcoat  was originally an item of clothing for British Army officers of the First World War, hence its name, and it shows this influence in its styling.  Traditionally this garment is double-breasted with 10 front buttons, has wide lapels, a storm flap and pockets that button-close.The coat is belted at the waist with a self-belt, as well as having straps around the wrists that also buckle up. The coat also often has shoulder straps that button-close; those were a functional feature in a military context. The traditional color of a trench coat was khaki., although newer versions come in many colors.” 

Not sure about colors, but every girls closet should have at least one khaki and one black ready to go at a moments notice.  This iconic item tops everything from jeans, to work, to cocktail and dinner.  It is the go-to coats for spring.   From Ralph Lauren, the creator of American Classics we found this dashing and versatile assortment.
