Spring 2011 Fashion Week in New York went from warm and sunny to freezing and rainy in a flash. The fashion world didn't fret. They simply threw on their best trenches and braved the day. The classic topper takes closet staples from simple to sophisticated. We spotted three decidedly different, yet equally chic, trench trends. First, we fell for the old standby—the timeless Burberry version paired with an understated yet sexy silk dress. Next, there was the ladylike number with contrasting trim, paired with slouchy separates. Then there was the thoroughly modern cropped trench, which perfectly complimented a printed dress and preppy loafers. This glamorous yet practical must-have works for women of all ages and body types.
