An updated classic: the trench coat.

I know, I know, it’s barely even winter. In the Northeast it doesn’t even feel like winter has started, which makes me nervous as to when it will end. But, all the catalogs coming to my house tell me it’s ok to start thinking about spring! Or at least spring clothes. One classic spring item that I don’t have in my wardrobe is a trench coat. I’ve always wanted one, but I’ve had a hard time finding an affordable option that fits properly and looks feminine. And while I’d love to be able to splurge on a Burberry trench, I can’t.

Luckily I found an adorable, and much more affordable, option at Banana Republic a few weeks ago. They put a fresh, updated, feminine spin on the classic trench. It has a slightly shorter length and comes in a great bright pink or a whimsical polka dot in dark navy. The pink option (which is $25 more) has a few extra girly details like gold buttons, epaulettes, and in case you were having a hard time deciding between the two, a polka dotted liner!

And the best thing about Banana Republic is that they always have some sort of coupon floating around!
