Classic Trench Coats with a Twist
By Lauren Terrill
Our favorite staple, denim, was all over the runways this season; here, Banana Republic updates the ’80s jean jacket to a classy trench with an irresistibly feminine silhouette ($175). Water Tower Place, 835 N. Michigan Ave., 312-642-7667
Brighten even the foggiest of March days with DKNY’s vibrant patterned trench ($695). Plus, the slightly heavier weight makes it perfect for this time of year. Bloomingdale’s, Westfield Old Orchard, 4963 Old Orchard Center, Skokie, 847-675-5200
We’re keen on sheen and this trench from Grand Rapids gal Pamella Roland ($2,310) puts a metallic spin on an old favorite. The jeweled detail at the cuffs completes this trench, perfect for an evening on the town. Neiman Marcus, 737 N. Michigan Ave., 312-642-5900
This asymmetrical coat from Marc Jacobs ($995) is a study in details. From the army-green shade with a glint of gold to the longerin- back length, this trench is matchless. Marc Jacobs, 11 E. Walton St., no phone at press time; marcjacobs.com
