Trench Coat Style

The Trench Coat. One of those all-time, gotta have it, always in style, completely classic and chic clothing items.  Some of my favorite old movies, like Miracle on 34th Street and Breakfast at Tiffany's (see photos below), feature both types of trench I love, one for rainy weather and one for cold weather!




Camel trench, a silk scarf and beautiful hat? Swoon. With cooler temps upon us I am definitely obsessing over the thicker wool style trench coats. I have tried my best to stay away from J. Crew's website since I basically spent everything I made this summer there (don't want to talk about it..) but today I decided to go take a look and I immediately feel in love with this beauty...



I mean, come on! The deep color, the structure, the details, the belt? Ah, I am falling head over heels. The Icon also comes in classic camel and rich navy, but my heart is melting over this unexpected yet completely perfect burgundy. I generally dislike this color because I had to wear it as a school uniform for years and years, but this coat is making me change my mind.

I love the thought of updating a classic silhouette with a color that is very popular this season. What do y'all think about trench coats? Do you have one already or are you looking to purchase one like me? Let me know what you think!
