Trench coats: they're cool and classic and lend a polished vibe to your look — no matter what you happen to be wearing underneath. The sleek silhouette calls to mind fashion icons like Jackie O., Katharine Hepburn, or Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca (who can forget her trench coat flapping in the breeze?). We've seen lots of cool spins on the timeless trench this season, from Burberry's leather sleeves and acid-bright hues to Diane von Furstenberg's cropped, nylon iterations — and the best thing about the style is that it comes in multiseasonal fabrications and colors, making it an appropriate choice for any occasion. We've taken one definitively classic Burberry London Marystow Gabardine Trench ($1,095) and styled it five different ways — for work, play, and everything in between.
