Topping our list of classic pieces every woman should own is the trench coat. You want a well made, good quality trench that is tough enough for a sprinkle and stylish enough to wear with a dress for a dinner date or suit for an interview. Look for a trench that has a hem that hits somewhere between mid-thigh and knee, you'll be able to wear it with more in your wardrobe.
When looking for a coat with longevity, it's best to avoid styles that have too many zippers, buttons or patterns and opt for simple styling and neutral colors instead. A belted style is far more flattering. With all the options available, you can find a great coat in virtually every price range.
