Trench coats are one of those essential wardrobe basics that have been engrained into our pop culture from time to time again. From the classic 40’s noir style look to the modern day loner with a secret, from the Macintosh to the rubber trench coat, they have proven to be a surprisingly long lasting trend.

Despite what you may think from various Hollywood movies/detective novels, trench coats can be worn by both men and women. Here are some good things to look for when getting a trench coat and where you can get them:

  • Look for authentic trench coat fabric when buying your outfit. Some of them are cotton gabardine and rubberized although modern fabrics such as 'event' fabric are rapidly gaining popularity.
  • Pick the color that’s right for you. Trench coat styles include the classic khaki but also are available in navy blue, black and just about every other colour you can think of!
  • Most trench coats are double breasted. Trench coats have been traditionally double breasted due to the fact that the garment began as military wear.
  • If looking for a good trench coat without paying in excess of 1000 dollars, be sure to check for one at a vintage store, where classic Burberry or Aquascutums can be often found.

Nothing looks more stylish with a classic trench coat than carrying an authentic Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Viva Cite GM Bag. The tote combines modern design with the charm of a classy looking functional bag as seen on Ashley Tisdale.

The anytime Viva Cite GM is crafted in durable Louis Vuitton monogram canvas, natural cowhide trim and is set off with its high quality gold tone hardware.

Via a gold tone LV engraved pull, the top zipper opens up to reveal the soft raspberry alcantara lining. There’s enough space to carry communication tablets, makeup and other essential with ease. The used Viva Cite GM adds even more organization with a cell pocket and a larger one.
