"Woman Wearing Pink and White Floral Trench Coat"

As we approach spring, the temps are rising, the wind is dying down, and the rain clouds are rolling in. You know what that means, right? Trench coat time! A trench is the choice outerwear for the moment because it’s not too heavy and it’s not too light. We’ve searched high and low to bring you several trench coats that are just right! Is classic tan all you’re looking for? Or, maybe you’re more inclined to sport a bold color? Either way, one of our picks will have you covered. So, if you’re into the trenches like we are, march on and find your next spring jacket!

Purchase the Milly trench coat pictured above here.

"Trench Coat with Yellow Stripes"

Stripe Trench Coat, The LOFT – $148

Stripes. Neon. Trench Coat. This jacket is so 2012. It combines three popular trends and does it oh-so well! The yellow-lime color is dubbed “limeade,” and is mellowed out by the tan stripes. Thinking about investing in this one? We think it’s a bright idea!

"Navy Trench Coat"Short Trench Coat, Uniqlo – $79.90

Join the dark side with this navy trench. Navy is a good choice because it isn’t as harsh as black can be. The sash belt highlights the waist and because this trench hits perfectly at the hip, it accentuates your boo-tay. If you got it, flaunt it!

"Draped Trench Coat"

City Trench Coat, Nasty Gal – $198

This taupe trench comes in a classic color, but in a fresh silhouette. The draping is so chic! Another unique feature of this trench is the closing mechanism. Double buckled straps are used at the collar to seal this baby shut. Such a cool jacket deserves to be worn by an equally cool gal! Is it you?

"Red Trench Coat"

The Ins and Outside Coat, Modcloth – $84.99

Can’t you just imagine hitting the pavement in this cherry-red trench designed by BB Dakota? We can. We see the bright shade catching the eye of everyone you pass on the street. The flared skirt creates a flattering silhouette which makes the coat ideal to wear with jeans or a little dress. In this case, red means go ahead with you’re bad self!

"Tan Trench Coat"

Trench Coat, Forever 21 – $34.80

Don’t you just love pieces that combine old and new elements? We do, and this trench is a stylish example of just that. It is double breasted, which gives it a vintage feel. The short length keeps it modern. Plus, the black trim is a nice detail and contrasts well with the almond color. Snatch this one fast!

"Turquoise Trench Coat"

Belted Stand Collar Trench Coat (Plus Size), Nordstrom – $128

Steve Madden’s genius isn’t limited to shoes. This belted trench coat is proof! Plus size ladies, don’t let anyone tell you, “You can’t wear color,” because you most certainly can! The model above is ROCKING this turquoise shade and you can too! The wide collar balances the bottom and the high belt placement creates an a-line shape. So flattering and cute!

"Pink Gingham Trench Coat"

Candy Connoisseur Coat, ModCloth – $49.99

This coat is too sweet for words, so insert loud SQUEAL here. Okay, let’s try this ‘word thing’ again. Gingham has popped up in many collections this year and this bubble-gum pink and white version is awesome! Double breasted, belted at the waist, and the length hits slightly above the knee – it can’t get any better. Give this one a try if you look pretty in pink!

"Woman Wearing an Orange Trench Coat"

Hooded Trench Coat, Nordstrom – $118

Put your hood up with this hooded trench coat by Michael Kors. This coral-orange color, “papaya,”  was MADE for spring! Finally a trench that will protect our clothing and our hair from the rain. Hat hair will be a thing of this past if you go for this bright coat. Love it!

"Polka Dot Trench Coat"

 Print Trench, Asos – $62.67

This dotted trench by Yumi is still a classic despite the print. Black is always in style, but it’s the small size of the polka dots that add character and save this coat from being boring. And in old school fashion, the buttons on this trench snap close. Are you a bit playful in your style and don’t want to push the envelope too much?  If you said, “yes,” then this is the trench for you!

"Floral Trench Coat"

Imprime Blossom Printed Trench, Revolve Clothing – $630

This floral creation by french designer Sonia Rykiel is très chic. This Parisian influenced trench costs a pretty penny, but it will be in style season after season because florals are an annual trend. This baby is going fast, so if they’re already sold out of your size, then email the retailer. Whoever rocks this coat has guts and style!

"Classic Tan Trench Coat"

 Classic Trench, Banana Republic – $198

We saved the most classic for last. The tan shade and standard length works for everyone. Banana Republic even manufactures this trench coat for tall women and petite gals to ensure a great fit. The trench is a staple wardrobe item and if you want to play it safe and classy, then go for this one!
