Just as lightweight cardigans are essential for spring and summer, we’re seeing a fresh take on this classic sweater that comes in the form of a trench coat. Whether worn casually with a t-shirt and jeans during the day or over an evening dress for a night out, the trench coat is a timeless piece every girl should have in her wardrobe, and the updated version is no different.

These light coats give your outfit a modern touch that’s perfect for layering and covering up on those breezy days. For me, spring is all about being minimal, and the lightweight trench is just that. Its slightly oversized silhouette makes it even easier to throw on for an effortless look, and the long draping adds texture to any outfit.

Here are some of my favorite ways to style the lightweight trench for spring:

  1. Experiment with pastel colors. I would go with a light, powder blue color for that unexpected spring touch. Being bold is not always about being loud.
  2. Go for clean lines. Dress it up with an asymmetrical skirt or dress it down with a loose-fitting collared shirt and boyfriend jeans.
  3. Try the sleeveless or vest trench. Perfect for layering over t-shirts or silky camis.
  4. Wear it with a jumpsuit or t-shirt dress for an effortless look that’s also comfortable.
