[Fashion] In The Trenches

Looking for a simple way to refresh your wardrobe this season? An easy, unfussy solution is the trench coat. This rainy-day essential is a classic staple item - with changes and upgrades from year to year - which never seems to go out of style. This season, look forward to new details like cropped sleeves, bold shoulders, eye-catching brights, and some new neutrals.

- Find a classic double-breasted trench and throw it on as a dress with high heels, ideal for work but also ready for an evening out, without having to run home and change beforehand!
- Try a short, cropped trench this spring!
- Dress up your trench with a cute skirt or dress and accessories for a party or fancy dinner.
- Cinch the waist with your favorite belt, which will not only give your waist some definition but also add a bit of your own, unique personality to the simple look.

You don't have to break the bank to wear this versatile look. Check out Forever21, H&M and Urban Outfitters for some wallet-friendly picks.

And just for fun... I've also come across some great umbrellas that would pair quite nicely with your new trench (here and here).
