Yes, You Can wear a Trench Coat Every Day

Yes, You Can wear a Trench Coat Every Day

The trench coat has been THE wear-to-work staple since the 40's, but over time it has proved it easily goes beyond the office. It's so versatile, in fact, we would argue you could wear it every day of your life (well, not in the freezing cold...or to a ball game...but you get the idea, right?) Try it on the weekend to streamline a pair of jeans, or over a flirty dress for #datenight. And of course it's perfect over anything you wear to work. For some more ideas check out the 6 bloggers below, who are serving up lots of ways to switch up this timeless classic. Bottom line? If you don't own one, you should.

CLASSIC

CASUAL FRIDAY

A black turtleneck, a pair of dark-wash jeans, and a pair of black booties are a not-so-special combo—but add a trench and it becomes an outfit.

AS A DRESS

Ok, ok, this isn't technically a trench coat but it's just as good. The dress version is as chic as the coat but has a decidedly more ladylike feel.

RUNNING ERRANDS

When worn with a trench, sweats and sneakers feel way less bum-y and way more fashion-y.
