The trench coat is one of very few no-fail items to invest in for your closet. “A trench coat is the most versatile piece in a wardrobe, you can wear it all year long, it is seasonless,” Elleme founder Jingjing Fan tells “It can easily be styled with a power suit, jeans and a tee, or a romantic dress to create completely different looks.”

In other words, it’s a total powerhouse. “A trench coat is like the LBD of outerwear: it brings instant polish to any situation,” Alison Cohn, deputy fashion news editor of BAZAAR says. “Throw one over anything—jeans and a t-shirt, say—cinch at the waist, and instantly you’ve got a look.” Once you invest in a great trench, it will last a lifetime—but that doesn’t mean you can’t have more than one. With innovative silhouettes ranging from oversized to closely tailored, and fabrications that run the gamut from leather to classic gabardine, consider your first trench coat a gateway purchase. Below, peruse 20 options that will never steer you wrong—from shorter takes to something casually bohemian.
