the perfect trench for under $100 | kelly golightly

Last week I shared the perfect cape for under $100. Today I’m sharing the other coat in my life that I wear every other day and am always asked about. Meet… the trench.

I scooped this trench coat up at Zara last spring and it goes everywhere I do, from London to LA. It’s Hammer, go Hammer… Oh wait, where was I?

This coat has traipsed around London Town in the rain, kept me warm on cool days in Capri, and even accompanied me to Audrey Hepburn’s home in Switzerland.

This coat is my righthand girl. I find myself tossing her on when I’m short on time and need to look a bit more pulled together yet not like I’m trying too hard. Which is almost always. Over denim, over dresses, this trench makes getting dressed a cinch when I’m in a pinch.

Sadly it can’t be found online anymore, but I’ve done some digging and found a nearly identical option that I love even more — and it’s under $100. Even better, it’s two coats in one.

You can unbutton the bottom and just wear the cute cropped jacket too. How great is that? Plus, I love the icy pink undertone. Pink does wonders for a girl’s complexion.
