A good trench coat wields considerable power. The classic-modern statement can elevate almost any look with an elegant flourish in no time flat—rain or shine. Perhaps that’s why there’s never any shortage of stars who swear by the season-less coat and stick to the trenches for a sophisticated cover-up.
Ripped denim and a camisole get an instant lift with a trench like Khloe Kardashian’s By Malene Birger ‘Orietta’ cady trench coat in an off-white shade for a casual yet polished effect.
Switch the trench to a darker shade for a sleek statement. British celeb Kelly Brook added even more attitude to hers with oversized cat-eye shades and patent pumps.
The versatile coat can even take on messy-chic proportions, sending out a relaxed, pulled-together vibe—starlet Dakota Fanning used her beige version to complete a schoolgirl-grunge ensemble with plenty of youthful flair.
