There’s a few coats in your closet that will simply never go out of style. You can’t go wrong with a leather moto jacket, a wool overcoat, or, of course, a classic trench. There’s a reason heritage brands like Burberry and Barbour have been making them for decades. However, to keep your look fresh, you can find more updated trench styles every season that make it feel a little more current. Case in point: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stepped out in New York City today wearing a modern trench coat of her own, and it’s very on-trend for spring.
Instead of wearing a trench in waxed cotton or poplin, the star stepped out in a crinkled red leather style by Bottega Veneta. The shiny material made it feel a lot more high fashion (with the price tag to match, of course. It retails over $9,000). Leather trenches are a huge runway trend this season, having made cameos in the spring collections of Balenciaga, Art School, and Burberry. To give her outerwear a street style-worthy finish, Huntington-Whiteley styled hers with a simple white pouch bag and strappy square-toe sandals, both also by the label. But that coat is the star of the show. It goes to show that an updated material can make a tried-and-true style feel totally brand new again.
