There’s no way around it, trench coats scream classic sophistication. Just like a pair of sunglasses or the right pair of black boots, the trench coat is a classic piece that you can count on whenever you need to up your “cool factor.” Plus, with iconic style stars such as Twiggy, Francoise Hardy, Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Audrey Hepburn iconically donning the clothing item, you’re sure to be in good company when wearing one.
The best part about the trench coat? It fits in super nicely with your work wardrobe. Seriously. Whether you’re pairing it with a pencil skirt, shift dress, pant suit, whatever, the trench coat is going to be the perfect piece of office outerwear 99% of the time.
However, wearing a trench coat, as chic as it is, isn’t necessarily the most practical thing to wear when the temperature reaches the high 80s and 90s, which is why Club Monaco’s new Prue Sleeveless Trench is truly a gift sent from above.
While trench coats are traditionally reserved for the more mild weather months of Spring and Fall, removing the sleeves makes it possible to sport the style during the blazing summer heat. Based off the classic trench coat silhouette, this sleeveless trench is a light khaki color with an exaggerated point collar, storm flaps on the front and back, a high-low hem and a luxurious lamb-leather back panel.
With its exaggerated features and hem that hits just above the knee, this sleeveless trench is modest enough for the work place yet, with the right pair of shoes and makeup, great for any outfit pairing you want to create. Plus, it’s different enough to set you apart from your colleagues but not too over the top so you’ll feel effortlessly cool and prepared to take on the work day.
