The Trench Coat: A Fashion Staple, Especially When It Friggin' Rains All The Time

It is one of those rainy Sundays so I thought it would be only appropriate to write about how important the trench coat is in the modern day wardrobe. The trench started off as an alternative to the serge greatcoats worn by British and French soldiers in the First World War.  So that gives it like extra points for being a historically functional coat. 

There is also just something about the trench that automatically makes you look rich and mysterious. I mean there is a reason Carmen Sandiego wore one (God that computer game was hard. I always felt dumber after playing it but Rockapella was so awesome.) 

Breakfast at Tiffany's was pretty much an ode to trench coats

His and Hers

Meryl Streep in Kramer Vs. Kramer

Here's my rainy day dream trench coat collage:

And now on to ways to wear your trench!

The classic Jackie O.

I love this look on Liv Tyler

Always cool Kate Bosworth

Love it with the boots

The beautiful Brigitte Bardot

This is the most normal she has ever looked

I love it with the leather sleeves
