Every once in a while, timeless as they may be, our wardrobe essentials—think trench coats, white button-downs, denim, and peacoats—find themselves in need of a little upgrade. These chic ingredients are, after all, the base for your more statement-making styles. And they deserve some attention too.
Trenches are as classic as they come, evoking memories of everyone. Stick to neutrals—navy, black, brown, and tan—but definitely look for something that will stand out against your more lightly hued outerwear.
Traditionally a more casual outerwear option, the army jacket gets a bit of an upgrade. Seeing a style with gold buttons is not only an awesome way to amp up the military-inspired jacket, but it's also a great opportunity to make the style a little more dressed up.
A high-shine statement in a metallic rose-gold hue, this leather metallic jacket from VERA DE NERO switches gears from tough to glam in no time flat.
