I’m Trading In My Bulky Winter Layers For A Trench Coat–and These 24 Are A1

Breaking out a trench coat after months of enduring below-freezing temperatures and mounds of snow is a life-changing experience. Okay, that may be a bit of an overstatement, but it's just so satisfying to finally ditch all of those heavy puffers in lieu of something lighter. For that, I already have an assortment of trench coats in mind that I'm itching to slip into. There's a reason why a trench is a staple topper among stylish people everywhere–it's an extremely versatile piece that manages to instantly elevate even the most low-key of outfits. 

Shopping for a new trench coat is basically my rite of passage into full-on spring, so count me excited to dive headfirst into online browsing. This season, the classic style has been reimagined in a number of exciting shapes and details that will surely get your sartorial juices flowing. From exaggerated shoulders to oversize shapes I've put together a list of options to kick your spring wardrobe into high gear. 

Just by looking at the details, I would never guess this is less than $100.

The quilted liner feels like an unexpected, fun peek-a-boo.

Elevate a sweatsuit into something more sartorially intentional with the addition of a trench coat. 

I'm always looking for cool touches like the black contrasting collar on this one.

I feel like grabbing a croissant and an espresso in this.

A chic alternative to classic tan? Classic black.

The boxy shoulders feel very Demna Balenciaga. 

A more minimal approach, the big black buttons are a small-ish detail that really stands out.

An option that could certainly pass as designer.

Frame concentrates on creating elevated basics that last a lifetime, so it's no surprise the brand also created the perfect trench.

I can't stop thinking about this one.

Finally–a coat to match the nylon Prada bag I've been dreaming about.

If you're looking for something no one else will have, this upcycled number is 1 of 1.
