Despite the fact that it is late July, sometimes I find myself unexpectedly freezing my butt off in the middle of the afternoon, equipped with nothing but a sheer knit cardigan to protect me from the chilly wind. That's the unpredictability of living in San Francisco (or my stubborn refusal to accept anything but warm sunshine), but regardless of where you reside, just because it's summer doesn't mean you don't have use for a coat, especially a perfectly practical trench.

Sure, the idea of a trench coat is classic, but that iconic look isn't quite so sweat-proof, which is why I'm loving the summer-friendly updates that this season's trenches are getting to suit the generally warmer weather! Whether short-sleeved, sleeveless, cropped, shrunken, or made with lightweight linen blends, you can rock the polished trench look all year round without looking totally out of season. You may love these summer versions so much, you'll be willing to shiver for the sake of wearing them even through the winter season (okay, maybe not that much)!
