I have a couple of long trenches that I love, but lately I've been seeking a shorter, less cumbersome version (I'm forever getting caught in the doors of taxi cabs). I've been passively looking, on and off, here and there, but it wasn't until I spied this beautiful, textured Burberry trench on the Spring 2010 runways that I knew exactly what I was looking for. It's not available yet and I certainly can't afford it, but it's the exact length I had in mind, fits impeccably, and gives me the option to swap the sash belt for leather to change up the look whenever I fancy. Over the weekend, I found my match at Rag & Bone, in a lovely, perfect-for-fall slate hue. Next mission: find the brown leather belt of my dreams.
Rag & Bone Great Coat, $595 @ La Garconne. It looks a bit more blue in person.
