A nice trench coat is a wardrobe staple that can get you through multiple seasons and can easily be dressed up or down. I finally settled on one I like last year. It's the Banana Republic petite flared ruffle trench, sold out in stores, but as seen here. The ruffle adds a flirty update, but overall, the silhouette is classic. I took mine on a trip to New Orleans and found it to be quite a versatile garment. If you don't have a trench coat in your closet, get on it! It is a purchase you won't regret.
