Look for Less: Classic Trench

The classic trench will never go out of style. Take a style tip from soon-to-be princess Kate Middleton, wearing a gorgeous Burberry trench coat (on left). I myself have a Burberry trench that I love wearing - it's truly timeless. If you don't want to splurge on an investment coat, get the same chic look for less.

Whether you wear your trench in the rain or not, a khaki-colored trench conveys elegance and sophistication. There are so many different colored trenches to choose from ~ black, red, navy, and more ~ but there is something especially classic about a khaki or beige colored trench.

Actress Jennifer Lawrence recently wore a simple Miu Miu khaki-colored trench. If you like more of a plain & classic trench, I would suggest opting for this DKNY trench. It's around 100 bucks and nails the classic belted trench look.

If you would prefer a short trench, Ellen Tracy has a beautiful trench in several different colors (including khaki, black and red) for only $80. This coat also comes in petite sizes as well!

If you like Kate Middleton's ruffle detail on her trench, this short khaki colored trench from Miss Sixty has an incredibly sweet ruffle detail on the back of the trench; this pick is also less than $100. See the picture below.

If you are wanting a more modern spin on the classic trench, Banana Republic's tie cuff trench is totally chic - I also love the bow detailing on the cuffs.

And last but not least, I think that this Topshop trench is perfect for a girly girl that likes pleats. The pleat detail on the back is fabulous.

The classic trench is truly timeless! And speaking of timeless: who could forget style legend Audrey Hepburn wearing a khaki-colored trench in Breakfast at Tiffany's?
