10th Commandment: January 15

Jan 15, 2014

It’s been a bit too warm for winter coats, so I’ve received a few e-mails asking for trench coat recommendations.  Of course, a Burberry trench is the heirloom-quality coat to which I aspire, but here are some choices in friendlier price points.

J.Crew Collection Icon Trench ($298)

This is the one I own, and I really like it.  The fabric is heavy, the fit is nice and the quality of the buttons and buckles is good.  There isn’t a better trench in this price range.

London Fog Heritage Trench ($178)

This is a Nordstrom exclusive item.  It comes in regular and petite, and it has a detachable liner for added warmth on chilly days.  It also comes in black, if stone isn’t your color.

    this is great. i’m also curious as to how you style trench coats….i feel like i look like a creeper or very soccer mom when i wear mine.

    Hi belle, I have a trench from banana a few seasons back. I recently lost some weight and the coat is too big. Do you think it is possible to get it altered without spending a ton of money?

    • Belle says:

      I think for the amount of money it will cost to alter it, I would buy a new one and sell the old one at Redzz or on eBay.

  3. Kim says:

    Hi Belle, I recently just bought a trench coat from Zara and I’m thinking of altering as it is a size too large (I’m quite slender) and the smallest they have is XS. It looks a bit tricky but have you tried altering your trench coats?

  4. Addison says:

    I just ordered the Nordstrom’s trench to replace the $50 trench I bought at Target 3 years ago. I can’t wait for it to come!

  5. Katie says:

    Single breasted options?

  6. GC says:

    BR has a decent trench that is lined. If you wait for a sale (which they have all the time) you can get one for a great price. That can hold you over until you can save up for the Burberry (which is my plan).
