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)!

Figleaves 2-in-1 DressThrust into the spotlight a couple of years ago, two-in-one dresses have remained popular for a reason: they make looking polished in an instant a breeze. Perfect whether you’re in a rush or just aren’t sure what to wear, they combine a flattering top with a complementary skirt for a look that’s top-to-bottom perfection. This dressy style is a great example, pairing twisted jade satin with a strongly structured skirt for an irresistible look.

As part of American Living for JCPenney’s “Made For” campaign, we were asked to create an outfit “Made For” a specific moment of our day. Like most women, we wear many hats, so wearing clothes that “do it all” is essential. Our clothes need to be stylish, comfortable and versatile enough to take us from morning to night and everywhere in between as we get our kids ready for school, head out for a business meeting, run errands and sometimes attend an evening work event or social gathering.

As you’ll see in the video, we consider a dress to be our wardrobe’s MVP (most versatile piece) - it’s the quickest way to get dressed in the morning, looks instantly polished, and can be dressed up or down with accessories and layering pieces. Check out the video above to see how our American Living dresses help us “do it all” throughout the day.

Now, here’s the fun part… we want you to share with us your “Made For” moment and select a piece from the American Living collection that you would wear for your moment in the comments section below. We’ll select our favorite comment to WIN a $250 gift card from JCPenney! You’ll also be entered to win the grand prize of a $1500 JCPenney gift card! The deadline for entries is 11:59 EST on July 31, 2010. (check out the official rules)

The video series is sponsored by JCPenney and produced by Style Coalition. Check out our YouTube channel to see all the Made For moments in the video series.
