The Coat That Celebrities Love

How a Classic’s Been Redefined and Turned Soft

BY Sydney Mitchell // 03.10.16

We first saw the trench coat wave a couple of seasons ago, and since then, designers have looked to reinvent the classic piece, adding their personal touches, of course. The coat has become a must-have for fashion lovers, and an easy go-to piece as well. Fresh off of furs reigning supreme this past season, we are headed into spring with a more optimistic approach and a lighter-weight coat. The soft trench is the perfect jacket for warmer weather (yes, even here in Texas). Whether tossed over a slip dress, draped over your shoulders, or worn with denim and sneakers, the coat gives us that chic vibe we are seeking.

Our favorite fashion icons, from Victoria Beckham to Kendall Jenner, have been rocking this style, with great looks. Come Saturday night, set your eyes on this Tibi relaxed-fit satin trench coat. Paired with an all-black outfit and statement accessories, you’ll have everyone doing a double-take. For a Sunday brunch with the girls, opt for the Paisie color-blocked coat. Drape it over a fitted cropped jumpsuit paired with a pointed-toe pump for a minimalist sense of ease.

Satin, silk, or viscose — these fabrics produce a light and luxe effect that make for a staple coat in your spring wardrobe. Shop some of our favorite pieces below.
