    I LOVE trench coats! I don't even think it's fair to categorize them as a trend because, as you said, they are utterly timeless. Unless you get them in turquoise, I guess. Time to save my pennies, I think.

    Thanks for your comment, Rebecca. It's fun that they're mainstream again, it's nice to see a beautiful classic piece on the scene. Your trench coat purchase will be worth the saved pennies, for sure!

    There is a think that I noticed lately on the fashion scene today, more and more people favor designs from the past. It seems that it's like we are going back into the past. I don't know if it is just me, or maybe you guys have noticed it too?

    Thanks for your insight, Gloria. I think it's always great when people can rely on classic pieces like the trench coat in their wardrobe. There's a lot of repetition within the fashion industry for sure (the heavy 70s influence for spring 2011 trends, for example), but classics are a great way to get the most bang for your buck in your wardrobe.

    I want a classic khaki belted one, and a crazy one for those crazy days. Like a Kermit-green one. I just got some adorable yellow floral loafers and they are screaming for a cute trench.

    You\’re absolutely right, Helen. Trench coats are a classic piece that will always be around, making it an excellent fashion investment. Get a good one that will last and you\’ll wear it for years to come.
