Sometimes the best part of an individual’s outfit is not their high waist jeans or asymmetrical shirt, but the jacket that completes it. Right now is the prime time to invest in the chic and relentlessly flattering trench coat. It’s incredibly useful when transitioning from fall to winter, providing comfort without the extra bulkiness that can ensue with other jackets. You’ll stay warm while walking along paths of fallen leaves on the way to class from morning to night. And amongst the crowds of hoodies and North Face fleece jackets the trench coat will make you shine like a beacon of sophistication. No matter what the fashion gods dictate this coat will never go out of style. Therefore get ready to hunt down the perfect fit and color for you. Try the classic all black trench that hits right above the knee or right along the hips. If that doesn’t catch your eye Tahari has a ruffled breast trench that will look great over a dress, heals, and tights for a night out. They also have a great faux fur collar to keep you warm. If monochromatic isn’t your style Target has a collection of Merona water repellent coats in wine, scarlet, and blue. Designer Michael Kors offers an accentuated collar with zipper pockets in bright red. Keep your eyes open for new styles and colors to place in your wardrobe.
