Ask the Edit: Springtime Coats

Feb 20, 2020

While I love a classic trench, today’s questioner is looking for options.  Could there be another professional topper out there?  Or must she wear trenches forever?


Hi Abra –

Any suggestions for a business appropriate springtime coat…that isn’t a trench?  Trench coats seem to be the main option as the weather warms up, and while I love a trench, would also like a different option.

Thank you! B

I love a good trench coat as well (this BR Factory one is a current favorite), but it is nice to have options.  Here are a few more choices that might be right for you.

Boden always has a selection of coats that is sure to please.  This Christie Collarless coat is a lot of fun, while being professional.   The red trim on this navy Dove Coat is a classic.  But for something modern, I would choose this camel and grey coat-igan.

This unlined topcoat from Banana Republic comes in neutrals and a selection of fun spring colors.  On the more casual side, they also offer this double-faced hooded jacket and this twill utility jacket.

Mango also has a wide selection of coats.  This swing coat with a zipper is a pretty option in pink.  I also like this collarless coat in ivory or black.

The last place I would  stop is Brooks Brothers.  This Dobby Swing Coat is professional, and water repellant for those of us who live in rainier climates.  They also have a similar jacket in water-repellant cotton twill.

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
