Spring 08 – Trench Coats are coming – Part 2

Trends come and go but “Classics” stand the test of time. Trench Coats are one of those classics. An items of clothing that doesn’t go out of style. It does often get updated though to incorporate current trends of the moment.

    As I was reviewing this, I kept thinking, oooh, aahhh. Lovely choices. It’s hard to pick just one.

    My top three choices would be the first red one, the green and the last military trench from Topshop. 😀
