Fab Chick: Wardrobe Must Have
The Trench Coat

The Trench Coat is back! Ok, honestly it never really went anywhere. Season after season we are seeing the classic style "rain" coat reinvented and reincarnated into something better than the last creation.  We're seeing different colors, lengths, and fabrications.   Designers have taken the traditional raincoat and put their unique imprints on the Burberry and Aquascutum creation. 

Take the above Burberry trench created for Colette. It's basic in color, but the detailing offers a surprising twist that we just love!  The gold studs strategically placed on the back collar is ingenious.  

Wouldn't you want to wear this with the collar flipped all the time? We would and we know a few other Fab Chicks would as well.   Thanks Pristina. It's definitely a great creation. 
Although we've love how the trench coat has evolved a bit, nothing beats the original.  A trench coat is an essential piece that every Fab Chick should have in her closet. It's a wardrobe must have! The style is versatile enough allowing for easy wear with many different looks. It can be dressed down or up, and transitions very well between seasons. 

If a plain beige trench isn't for you, then go with something in a print or color. There are many non-traditional options out there to choose from.  

So if you have yet to add a trench coat to your wardrobe, you might want to make that investment. You will have it for years to come. 

Many designers have debuted various trench coat styles in their Spring 2010 collections. Check out a few here.
