I looooove a draped trench coat. I actually prefer a draped trench over a crisp, classic trench like my Burberry one. For starters, they’re more comfortable to move around in, travel friendly – especially on long trips, and flow beautifully when you walk. They look better than a stiff trench when paired with something like a tailored pant or a silk dress, and are easier to layer with since they’ve got more room.
Theory makes some of the best trenches – and outerwear – on the market. Over the years I’ve invested in over 10 of their coats and each one still looks brand new. I like to snag their pieces on sale at the end of a season, or whenever they’re having a special promotion! The exact trench I’m wearing here is sadly sold out. But, they still have it in black here, and cream here (the cream is amazeeee!)
If you’re in the market for a feminine, draped trench coat for spring, I love this one, this one and this one. I just got this one from Banana Republic in olive green and can attest that the quality and fit are great. If you’re in between sizes, size down – their outerwear runs big. This is a beautiful trench coat under $100, and you can’t go wrong with this Club Monaco one.
How to Style
I saw these oversized, distressed boyfriend jeans online months ago and was really intrigued to see if they would be cute on. They’re definitely more of a masculine/grunge denim than I usually wear – but it’s kind of fun to have a pair like these hanging in your closet. As much as I love wearing feminine pieces, you need to mix it up every once in a while!!! These fit SO well and just feel good on so I kept them. I liked the way they looked paired with this classic trench and can’t wait to wear them this spring/summer with T-shirts and short sleeve button downs.
