There’s no doubt a classic trench coat is an absolute must for any collegiette™, which is why we’re not surprised it was all over the runways. The trench is flattering on every body type, and it can be the perfect addition to any casual or dressy outfit. Calvin Klein even makes this version water-resistant, so you can brave the season’s dreary weather in style.
