Diggin' These Trenches

One of our followers, inspired by the blog's new layout, asked us to recommend some trench coats for fall. When I think trenches I think traditional Burberry camel, which also happens to be one of the most popular colors this season...

If you can't afford the pricier British version of this versatile coat, we found two cute coats for fall that won't break the bank. We love this classic Calvin Klein trench on sale at Macy's for only $99, and a wool and cashmere version by J Crew for $325. The classic trench is a timeless piece, so why not invest a little more in a coat that never seems to go out of style? Change it up by adding a studded belt or tie a bow in the back and wear it like a cape to show off your trés chic outfit underneath.

Another big trend we're seeing this fall is Military, in everything from combat boots to camouflage purses. A great way to work this look is a military style trench. We're loving this DKNY olive green coat, also from Macy's for $99.98. Wantin some more armed forces? Change the buttons for some vintage gold ones and you're ready for battle babes.

If you're feeling more vamp this fall, we like this funky black crinkly trench (eDress Me $73) and flirty Alice + Olivia coat ($484 at Berdoff Goodman). Why not add some blood red lips to the mix?

And of course I had to include my favorites from Burberry, known for it's iconic trench. . .

I'm obsessed with the black leather motorcycle babe trench, a look that seems more fall than spring to me, but just gives us something to look forward to! I also
the gold accents (YES! Studs are here to stay!) on the classic trench, add a bright snakeskin belt and VOILA- the prefect mix of punk rock babe and feminine sweet for spring. Did I mention how much I'm diggin' those sea foam green shoes they're carrying? Once again, bravo Christopher.
