Jackets can very easily change the entire feel of an outfit. This poses one unfortunate dilemma: how to rock a jacket during the dreadful summer? Cue the mighty powerful summer trench.
I'm not a huge fan of the thick, waterproof trench (because you know, who would use something for the purpose it's actually been designed for?) but this resurgence of the trench has been accompanied by airy fabrics, a rainbow of colors (but who are we kidding, I'll take three - all in black), and different fits and cuts. Perfecto for summer!
Surprisingly so, the summer trench is in essence like your basic white tee. Mayyybe it's a stretch, but it literally goes with everything. Tee and distressed denim kind of day? Great, throw on your trench. Crop top and skater skirt night? Great, throw on your trench. Literally, she's begging for a day/night on the town. No need to break the bank either - see below for some of the best finds out!
