Modern, Updated Trench Coats

So...
I don't know about you, but I've had it with my winter coat!
It's a hot coat--don't get me wrong--but I'm ready to throw on a brighter color, lighter fabric, and more shaping silhouette.
While you can always go the traditional route with a khaki or black trench coat (as I discussed in my first trench coat post), newer versions offer variations on the conventional, adding bows, luster, ruffles, shortened sleeves, and eye catching colors.
Celebrities know what's up:
Beyonce...
...steps out in a slick green number for a night on the town.
Alicia Keys opts for a black trench with white contrast stitching...
Mel B wilds out with a belted leopard jacket...
And Amerie shines in a satin trench...
...accented with bright gold buttons.
If you want to update your outerwear wardrobe, try these well priced options:
Top Row: Three Season Trench Coat, $75, www.edressme.com; Soia & Kyo Asymmetrical Trench Coat, $265, www.nordstrom.com; Belted Trench Coat, $37.80, www.forever21.com.


Smootches!

Ok how is this for heartbreak....

Went to buy the Jones NY Leopard Trench, that went on sale Tuesday @ Macy's for 89.99, and the damm thing was sold out!

Last week it went down from $149 to $119. When I checked Tuesday and saw on sale, I waited for today, payday. And it's gone...

I haven't stopped crying...

Find it at Label360.com said...

I love all the coats especially the blue and yellow one. I think its one of best style now in Hollywood. I always see Katie Holmes on that attire

I Love This Style Of Coat, And Have Been Searching For One For A While Now. Personally I Prefer Full Skirted Trench Coats, And Have Seen Una Healy From The Saturdays Wearing A Nice One In The Music Video For 'Issues'

Anyone Know Where I Can Find It?
