What can Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston all agree on? A beautiful trench coat! The perfect trench can go with everything -- jeans, dresses, trousers, bare legs -- and is almost appearing like the new little coat dress.
I am always asked what is a chic transition piece to buy that will go over basically everything you own and will never go out of style no matter what. The answer is always a trench coat! I happen to love Isaac Mizrahi Live's chic and sweet trench, which is a must have for spring. It's so chic and looks like it fits like a gem. It's $98.40, which is so much of a better deal than a Burberry trench -- which, I love, believe me, but I can't slap down those funds so easily.
I do think the gold buttons are something rich and posh that separates this particular style, while still staying chic and with the plan. It's a wonderful 24/7 piece that can be paired with trousers and a blouse, jeans and tee and over a little black dress. A jacket for every occasion and every season? Yes! It's sized from an XS to a 3X -- love that! And if khaki ain't your thing, it also comes in Kelly green, bright azalea, black and a carrot color. Lined with very fun polka dots, this is something that will work this spring, rain or shine.
