From Burberry Prorsum’s notably eclectic and colorful designs to the more staid and smooth renditions of Salvatore Ferragamo, trench coats represent one of the season’s most sought-after trends. Keeping in line with tailored-clothing styles and military fashions, trench coats add a healthy dose of glamour to casual outﬁts, especially with a little accessorizing.
“Trench coats continue to be a popular spring trend,” says Kate Souza, public relations representative for Charles River Apparel. “For one, they’re the perfect go-to piece for rainy days. In addition, the trench has been getting a ‘face-lift’ every year, sporting trendy colors and prints to keep it fresh and stylish.”
Souza praises trench coats for their remarkable versatility. “Classic versions come in various lengths, ranging from mid-calf to above the knee, so almost any company can take advantage of the trend,” she says. Another beneﬁt to the trench is that it’s popular among both women and men. According to Souza, “Women love them for their fashionable feel, and men can take advantage of their convenience.”
