GETFRESHTIPS: In the Trenches

Spring showers bring May flowers, they also bring out the trench coats. A rainy day must have and the business worlds best friend, the trench coat is classic.
For a while we were stuck with just the basic unisex style double breasted coat with a belt. You know the one worn by your favorite TV P.I. There were no accommodations for shape or fabulousness. Thankfully times have changed, no more Columbo coats for women. The new trench coats come ruffled and bubbled. Short, long and every length in between. Burberry's Prorsum Spring 2010 collection had coats so beautiful they could almost pass for dresses.
If Burberry's not in your budget check out BeBe or The Gap for cute styles.
Don't be afraid to experiment with color either, basic black and tan are nice for everyday but sometimes you want to pop! Go for red, yellow, or pink. In to prints? Try a pretty floral or leopard to spice up your wardrobe.
If you already own a trench Re-FRESH it! Switch the belt for a funkier version. Push those sleeves up and throw on a set of chunky bangles. Use what you already own and make it your own. No matter which you choose with the new trench coat styles for Spring, you'll be praying for rain.
