A short silhouette and military details give this spring’s trench coat a chic new look
The iconic trench coat has had many lives, from Marlene Dietrich’s glam screen-siren style in A Foreign Affair to Audrey Hepburn’s chic cinched version in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' charming topper of choice in the 1970s. Even if you stray from the classic version in earth-toned khaki in favor of one done in a brighter hue, the trench retains its menswear-inspired feel.
This season, Black Label imparts a military influence on the trench, which now features a dark olive hue, subtle leather trim and a sexy cropped silhouette. The shape gives your look a modern edge and elongates your legs, while the shoulder epaulettes and oversized collar frame your face. Go bold and layer it over a leather top, or keep it casual with a simple tee and skinny jeans. Chunky Southwestern-inspired jewelry completes the ensemble and gives your look a certain je ne sais quoi even Hepburn would approve of.
