The trench coat is the hero of spring outerwear: long enough to defend against sudden seasonal gusts, but light enough to transition to the sunnier side of the street. And while khaki styles are always classic, a host of modern interpretations keep the style current. Mackage added quilted leather shoulders to a standard silhouette for a bit of edge, while Creatures of Comfort went cropped, double-breasted, and robin's egg blue. We can't rightly put together a trench story without mentioning Burberry, and as they've got versions rendered in metallic for spring, they're hard to ignore anyhow. Click through the gallery above for all nine.
