0

A prime example of a wardrobe staple that will never go out of style? A classic beige trench coat. Not only is it a minimalist wardrobe staple (and part of vogues wardrobe essentials guide for 2022), it’s also an item you can wear and keep forever. Thanks to its timeless details and neutral color palette, the best trench coats can’t go wrong.

After all, it’s a coat people have relied on for decades. In 1879, Thomas Burberry invented gabardine, the weatherproof cotton textile for which coats are known, and it made fashion history, although technically, at the time, it fitted the army. and not the style. But thanks to hallmarks of Hollywood movies and pop culture, the trench coat eventually became a fashion item in its own right.

Since then, there have been many updated interpretations of the coat that have made it not only a staple, but also very stylish. From Burberry to Balenciaga, we often see remixed versions of the trench coat – beyond beige gabardine – on the runways, which certainly keeps the piece top of mind each season.

Some of our favorite trenches are smooth leathers, two-tones and non-traditional hues. There are even shortened versions of the coat! To narrow it down, The Get has rounded up the ultimate selection of the best women’s trench coats for every style and need. Shop them all below.
