Audrey Hepburn wore hers with an air of elegance in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Rihanna went for a cool, futuristic vibe with a patent leather number—worn as a dress no less—at the 2018 Grammys. Fast forward to 2020 and the everversatile trench coat has undergone yet another update, while retaining subtle details and a structured silhouette. Balenciaga’s supersized khaki topper was layered over bold hues for a quirky twist while over at Dior, Maria Grazia Chiuri channelled a safari vibe by teaming her sleeveless version with Bermuda shorts and kneehigh boots. Meanwhile, Jeremy Scott cut and spliced British tweed and American denim at Moschino, and Tory Burch put forth a paisleyprinted version— teamed with a timeless striped top and linen trousers—that recalled the carefree days of farflung adventures we crave so much. Burberry, credited for the invention of the trench coat, presented a sleek, formidable leather number in black, in a nod to this generation of style icons. Whether you’re after a classic piece for every occasion or a cuttingedge design for greater impact, this season’s iterations have got you covered.
