Trend Alert: Trench Coats

Nothing is more quintessential to Spring fashion than the trench coat! The outerwear follows the Goldilocks principle — not too heavy, not too light — making it just right for the volatile weather of Spring that can change without notice. Trench coats traditionally feature several design elements such as wide lapels, a belted waist and a storm flap on the back. Some pieces also have additional embellishments such as belted wrists, a front gunflap, and epaulettes which are a nod to the jacket’s military roots. Though classically this jacket is khaki in color, nowadays trench coats can be found in a whole rainbow of colors — thanks Burberry!

This Spring, Korean celebrities were all over the trench coat! These jackets were seen in a variety of styles as airport fashion, at red carpet events, on dramas and as the subject of magazine pictorials. The jackets were often used to cap off simple looks that included white tops and distressed jeans or black skinnies. We’ve got a round up of this season’s stylish trench coat looks from the likes of top stars BoA, Jun Ji Hyun, Park Shin Hye and more. Check out the details!

Even though Spring is almost over, don’t feel like you can’t still buy a trench coat for yourself. The greatest thing about this type of jacket is that they NEVER go out of style! The trench coat is truly a fashion staple that everyone should own. This still isn’t justification enough to drop over $1000 on a jacket from Burberry though. Luckily for us, Forever 21 offers wallet-friendly options in both classic and trendy styles!
