The One Item Every Celebrity Has in Their Closet


A great trench coat is arguably as classic as the LBD and is a practical essential to any wardrobe! The modern trench has become synonymous with Burberry, as the brand has cultivated and perfected its design. The trench coat is timeless and so versatile; you can literally wear it forever and here’s why:

This label is a phenomenon. It is deeply rooted in its history – the brand was founded in 1856 – but still at the top of every trend. The secret of Burberry: it’s quality and it’s consistency. Because real classics like the trench coat, the trench coat with the famous check pattern have a very unique and rare talent: The can adopt every style. They can be elegant, sporty, glamorous or even punky – but they will never be out of fashion.

The easy-to-spot Burberry trench coat is a style staple among the A-list due to its versatility. Sported by Alexa Chung and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on numerous occasions, other style-setters spotted wearing the celebrated classic include Jessica Chastain, Poppy Delevingne and Clémence Poésy



The Fabric:
Thomas Burberry invented gabardine, a durable water-resistant fabric that is lightweight and packable perfect for travel and the khaki shade flatters every skin tone and pairs well with neutrals and brights alike.

The Shape:
Seaming gives this menswear staple a feminine fit, and the double-breasted design accommodates a larger bust while throwing straighter figures a curve. The mid-length style provides rear coverage and it’s perfect to wear over dresses.

The Pockets:
Flat and strategically placed at the front of the hip to avoid unnecessary bulk, yet deep enough to hold all your essentials.


It’s a favorite of mine for transitional weather since the fabric is light yet resilient. I can easily dress it up or down. Style it over jeans and a t-shirt or over a dress and heels for a streamlined look. While I often layer it for winter, I also love the trench for spring. A true three season coat that is both work appropriate and weekend comfy!
