There are few items of clothing more iconic or classic than the trench coat. Wear it in any city in the world and you’ll look instantly chic and pulled together. I relied on my Michael Kors black trench while traveling around Europe and let’s just say I never once felt like an American tourist. The Brits are well versed in the art of the trench, not many designers can compare to Burberry in terms of their expertise in jackets and each year they upgrade the timeless silhouette. These two ladies epitomize the elegance of the trench at any age. File under time to dust mine off.
