A camel trench coat is a fashion classic that belongs in every wardrobe. "You can style it with literally anything already hanging in your closet. It's also a great seasonal pick because spring weather can still be a little unpredictable, " says Fashion Times fashion market director Sarah Meikle. A trench is a perfect topper over a simple tank top and jeans or cropped pants and you can rock it with sneakers like the cult-fave Adidas Sambas or wear a chunky loafer—white loafers and ballet-style flats are trending this spring. Obviously, the iconic Burberry trench is the pin-up, but you can get lots of great affordable stylish trench coats from brands like H&M, Everlane, Banana Republic, GAP, Mango and Amazon. And on the topic of mastering in-between-season dressing find out what other advice she and the style experts have here.
