1.22 // Trend: Standout Trenches

Not just for World War I anymore! Actually, trenchcoats have been a staple of both men’s and women’s wardrobes since WWI; their classic style combined with the newest trends and patterns makes them last through every decade.

Multiple designers have been featuring trenches in their Fall ‘08, Spring ‘09, and Pre-Fall ‘09 collections… Burberry, of course - trenches are sort of synonymous with Burberry at this point. YSL had their black mesh trench (a steal at $25,000!).
