If you don't already have one in your closet, now is the time to invest in a classic trench coat. The trench coat has been in style practically since the day it was created. Borrowed from the boys, it's chic, tailored and practical, all while remaining feminine thanks to its belted waist, with an air of mystery--who knows what you're wearing underneath? The classic silhouette has remained unchanged, though there are variations that are shorter, in a rainbow hue of colors or fitted with ruffles. And not that there's anything wrong with those, but you should only experiment once you own the original. The end of winter is the best time to buy a trench coat. You'll have it on those suddenly 60 degree days that pop up every now and then in February and March and for all of April's notorious showers.
