Friday Fancies : The Perfect Trench

Spring is almost upon us and here in Toronto, this usually means about 3 weeks of semi-warm, "can't go without a jacket weather", before the summer heat kicks in.
But, and this part is important, you MUST be prepared for this time.
And by prepared, I mean, you have to own a classic trench...particularly if you are a working woman.
A reader {and dear friend} recently asked me to help her on the search for the perfect trench coat.
Know that she has 2 children under the age of 4 so comfort, versatility and affordability are key.


cover - perfect trench



The iconic, classic Burberry trench.
The one which all others are measured against.
And yes, you could splurge on this beauty. It would definitely last a lifetime but really, do you want to spend what could very likely be your entire Spring shopping budget on one item?
Not so much.


Here are a few great options: 
J Crew $344 {J Crew Factory : option}



Forever XXI $29.80 

Zara $139
Jacob $169.90 {sign up for their online newsletter & receive $20 off your purchase}

The Gap $128 {less 30% right now} 

I also saw a huge {and fabulous!} collection at The Bay that included tons of great looks by London Fog. Definitely worth checking out. 
My favorite above has to be the leather-trimmed version by Jacob. It's classic but with an edge which I always love.
Which one would you choose?

  7. I have a classic beige and a bright red trench and love them both.
    Burberry is one of the greatest brands but more than just slightly above my budget... ZARA and MANGO always have a great selection.
