Guest Post: The Search for the Perfect Trench

Hello Tartan & Sequins readers! I’m Meredith from The Social Chair, and I’m thrilled to be here as Julia enjoys all the bliss and happiness of her wedding and honeymoon!

With the beginning of fall soon approaching, I’ve been thinking more and more about what investment and classic pieces I want to add to my wardrobe. One of the most essential pieces of any wardrobe is a trench coat. I wear my black trench coat from Banana Republic so much during the fall and early spring months, but it’s beginning to show some wear and tear after 5 years of repeated use. After some searching, I’ve found a collection of beautiful and timeless trench coats, the hard decision will be deciding which one to buy!

This is what I have, only in black. I love it and may keep an eye out for when they release it in a tan color so it can have a bit more versatility. As I previously mentioned, mine has lasted years and many rain storms!

London Fog is a trusted name for trench coats – they’re known for their durability and for also nailing the classic trench coat style. This color and silhouette is timeless, and I love the special detailing of the quilted material on the shoulders!

A classic, with a twist! The grey side panels on this coat give it a boost of personality, yet it still is a traditional trench coat. This one immediately caught my eye when I was online searching for coats, I love it.

This affordable trench coat from Target comes in five great colors (including a super cute black once with white piping!). I may purchase one of the bolder colors to brighten up a rainy day. You can’t beat this price!

What’s more classic than a Burberry trench? It’s on my bucket list of dream closet items (along with a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes and Louis Vuitton Neverfull).

Which one would you pick? I’m going to start saving some pennies so the Burberry one can one day be mine :)


  1. Loving the cool details of the Sam Edelman, but totally with you on saving money for a Burberry trench one day!

  2. I have two Banana trenches and for the money they are great. Both really classic and fit like a dream! Michael Kors does some really nice trenches too, but I agree with Blair that one day the Burberry Trench has to be in rotation!
