Khloe K and Karlie Kloss Are All Over This Easy Spring Wardrobe Staple
The trench coat is nothing new, but if you’ve been stalking celebrities in your Instagram feed recently or checking out all of the fabulous street style fashion from Paris and London’s fashion week, you’re sure to have seen this closet staple all over. With warmer weather on the horizon, now is the time to dust off that trusty trench and pair it with an array of outfits like spring florals and, heck, even a midi skirt. Need some inspo? Take a look at how these celebrities pulled off the classic piece with an updated modern spin.
1. Satiny flow. This slinky number that Khloe Kardashian rocked doesn’t need to be taken off when you come indoors – it’s part of the whole package. Pairing this with a simple black jumpsuit is a great way to update your LBD without spending a lot of dough. In need of some sophisticated office attire? Replacing a blazer with a lightweight coat like this is just the thing to take you to girl boss level. (photo via Cindy Ord/Getty)
2. Clean ‘n’ crisp. Karlie Kloss kept her look classically chic with jeans, a turtleneck, ankle boots and a leather backpack. The addition of the bike may have been just a coincidence, but we think it’s the perfect accessory to pull off the French girl look that has a big impact with seemingly little effort.

3. Play up contrasts. You don’t just need to stick to a nude coat: Try another shade like this army green number Alexa Chung sported at London Fashion week. We love how she contrasted the rugged, army-inspired hue in what appears to be waxed canvas with a Victorian lace dress to make the look a little more dainty and trendy. Keeping the coat open helps show off the texture of the dress, giving it a more visually appealing look. (photo via Christian Vierig/Getty)
4. Go girly. They don’t call her “Posh” for nothing: Victoria Beckham basically pulls off the trench-as-evening-wear look with a simple styling trick. As you’ll notice, by wearing her satiny navy trench belted at the waist, Vic B creates an elegant hourglass silhouette that also perfectly shows off the lace-hemmed slip-dress she’s wearing underneath. Her gold-tipped black pumps offer proof that, why yes, you CAN wear navy and black together. (photo via Alessio Botticelli/Getty)
