wanted: in the trenches

If there's one wardrobe staple every New Yorker seems to own, it's a trench coat. Since bikinis are more of a necessity back home though, I never felt the need to get one. Cue my arrival in the city a few weeks ago to a slew of New Yorkers, including all of the men, wearing fabulous coats.
The classic shape and timeless style definitely make this an investment piece I'm not skimping on. To narrow my search, I decided that whatever trench I was going to buy had to fit the following criteria:
1. Beige or Tan in Color
2. Double-Breasted Buttons
3. A Belt to Cinch it at the Waist
 After some searching and falling in love with one too many Burberry coats, I narrowed my choices down to these three.
And just for fun, here are a few of the gorgeous Burberry's I stumbled on. With price tags well over $1,000 they're way out of my price range but they're still so nice to look at.
Someday, though. Someday.


  1. nothing beats Burberry coats but they're just too expensive :((
