Trench Wars: Slick picks to weather any storm

1ST PLACE — BLACK BEAUTY

On Jeanne: Samuel Dong Trench Coat, $199

“A trench coat should be all-weather unless of, course, you’re buying it as a fashion statement. It should be roomy enough to put over another suit jacket yet light-weight and easy to pack. The coat should be made of fabric that isn’t going to wrinkle too much and with a bit of neutrality, so it could go with most things. That being said, though, there are so many variations that you may want to own two or three! This is a very sleek, modern, beautiful coat. Very high fashion with a formal feel although you could wear it with a pair of jeans and that could look pretty hip, too. I love it!”

Parabie, 2471 Yonge St., 416-488-4947
