With winter behind us and spring in full force, adding a classic trench coat to your wardrobe is the best decision you can make right now (“April Showers,” remember?). A trench coat is light and breathable enough to keep you warm, but not too hot to wear during the spring or a rainy day. It’s that one item you can pull out of your closet that will tie your entire look together. Whether you’re getting dressed for work or for a weekend outing, you can style it with everything from a suit and heels to jeans and a T-shirt. (Note that it does run large, so make sure to size down.)
