Whether you’re a fan or not, there’s not denying that Angelina Jolie is an effortlessly-chic icon of the ages. Never one to dress too over the top, her New York cool girl style often involves layering classic essentials in neutral tones.

While we may not all be able to pull off the effortlessly chic look without appearing as though we’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed, staple pieces in the 44-year-old actor’s wardrobe are easy to wear separately. Take the Everlane Modern Trench Coat, for example. Loved by the humanitarian and mother, Jolie has been spotted sporting this affordable outdoor essential on various occasions.

The Modern Trench Coat by the popular sustainable retailer is loved for its oversized fit, raglan sleeves and water-resistant finish.

What is it?

A cooler approach to the classic trench, this cotton coat is slightly longer and looser than the traditional style. Available in three colours, and with luxe details like a storm flap and water-resistant coating, the jacket works whether you’re running errands, walking the dog or getting essentials at Whole Foods (à la Jolie).

Pair it with blue jeans and a basic tee, or take a cue from Jolie and pair it with something a little snazzier, like a white broderie anglaise dress. According to Everlane, a trench of this nature would traditionally retail for $476, but thanks to their transparent pricing, you can shop it for less than half that.

What people are saying

With almost 500 reviews and a 4.6 star rating, this modern take on the classic trench is deemed a wardrobe staple by happy customers.

“I love this coat! It's a classic but modern shape – the neckline looks great all the way buttoned up, or left open, and the tie around the waist makes the silhouette a little more flattering,” says one shopper. “It hangs just below the knees and the pockets are big enough for phone/wallet. Fabric is really nice too: it repels water pretty well and doesn't wrinkle easily.”

“I cannot get enough of this trench. It’s roomy without being baggy, tailored without being constricting. The weight is lovely and the cut is classically perfect,” adds another.

While the modern shape and functionality of this coat are widely loved, shoppers do recommend sizing down if you’re looking for a more tailored fit.

“This coat is everything I was hoping for. It's the perfect length and classic colour, the material is great and I love the small details. I sized down for a more tailored fit, and so happy I did. I can still layer my cashmere crew under it with a bit of room to move. If you want the oversize fit though, I would stick to your usual size. Excited to have this in my closet for years and years to come,” reads one review.

“I've been on the hunt for the perfect trench coat and, as another reviewer stated, the hunt is over. The fabric is very luxurious. The drape is beautiful… I bought an XL but I could easily size down because of the more relaxed fit,” adds another.

The verdict

If you’re looking for a chic coat for transitional weather or are simply looking to seek out your inner Angelina Jolie, the Everlane Modern Trench Coat may be just the thing for you. With a modern shape, water-resistant fabric and a silhouette that flatters all shapes, this coat is highly recommended by shoppers. If you’re looking for something a little more fitted, size down per customer recommendations.
