Spring '09 Trend Alert: The Trench Coat

I love it when it just so happens that a particular season's "must-have trend" is also a classic wardrobe staple. That's the case this Spring with the popularity of the Trench Coat. Since the trench is one of the most classic items a woman can have in her wardrobe, this is a piece, if purchased this season, you will continue to wear for years to come! It's perfect for the unpredictable weather of spring and will come in handy on the rainy/overcast days of summer.

I think designer Michael Kors would agree since he was once quoted: "Put on a trench and your suddenly Audrey Hepburn walking along the Seine."

Although you can't go wrong with the classic, go-with-everything khaki-toned trench, there are a lot of fresh color choices available this season. I am pretty obsessed with this hot coral-pink trench by Kensie (pictured above left). Kensie clothes are available at Bloomigdales and Dillards, as well as numerous boutiques/retailers nation-wide. Go to to find a store near you.

Chadwicks is featuring a classic double-breasted tie-waist trench in a variety of colors at an absolute steal of a price: $39.99. (pictured above right)

Gap and Banana Republic also currently have a good variety of trenches.

Remember that a tie-waist is a "must" when it comes to a trench...and is also one of the most flattering coat-styles on any woman, since it emphasizes the small of the waist.

Stylishly yours,
