Trend Alert: In the Trenches

One piece of outerwear you will find in every fashion professional's closet is a trench. The trench has been around for ions — and is functional fashion at its best. First created by Thomas Burberry for the British army officers in World War I, the garment kept the troops warm and dry in the trenches. This coat continues to serve people well in the trenches, with it's ability to be both glamorous and serviceable. With so many incarnations throughout time, most notably by Yves Saint Laurent and Jean Paul Gaultier, the design has barely changed. If you don't have a Fab trench by now, now is the time to take the plunge.

I own five, a three quarter khaki from Old Navy, a burgundy one from Mossimo @ Target, a khaki Michael Kors, a black Calvin Klein and a Navy Blue one from H&M. I've been thinking of purchasing a cranberry color one for fall.

I've SERIOUSLY been thinking about getting a khaki trench for winter.Promblem is, for where I live, it wouldn't be a wise purchase.It's either cold or hot here, no inbetween (west coast, no rain)<i>*sigh*</i>All the more reason to move I guess.. ;)

I love a good trench. I got mine while working for Gap about 5 years ago and it still 'serves its purpose.' Timeless, timeless I tell you.

i love the red nordstrom trench.. and yes, it's eons, not ions

FYI: eon (or aeon) is the correct spelling. An ion is an atom that has either gained or lost electrons.
