The best thing about spring is the weather. After a long cold winter, the sun is a welcome change and there is no better feeling than hanging your winter jacket in the back of your closet. Unfortunately, just because winter is finally over doesn’t mean that you can ditch your jacket altogether. Finding the perfect spring jacket, however, can be a challenge. The ideal jacket is versatile enough to wear with any outfit and practical enough to survive spring showers and chilly mornings. This Fashionista has the solution: the trench coat.

With her trench coat, this Fashionista is prepared for any weather that comes her way. The trench is an iconic wardrobe staple that never goes out of style. It’s practical and stylish, making it a must-have that will be worn over and over again. Although you certainly can’t go wrong with the classic trench, this Fashionista puts a spin on the classic with her army green, military-esque version. The leather sleeves and collar give the trench some texture and an instant-cool vibe. To maximize the cool factor, she leaves her jacket open and unbuttoned, which gives her outfit a relaxed feel. This Fashionista keeps her look laid back with a graphic T-shirt and black skinnies. Black booties with gold detailing on the heels are a fun alternative to the classic black boot.

The versatility of a trench makes it the perfect finish for almost any outfit. Wear your trench with jeans and a T-shirt for a super casual look or pair it with a black dress and heels for a night out.

How To: Is the forecast calling for rain? Before you reach for your rain jacket, consider a trench coat instead. If the rain persists all day or clears up later on, you’ll be prepared and on-trend.
