Getting dressed for work shouldn’t be a bore. Welcome to Business Casual — here to make your weekdays easier.
Last spring, at Seoul Fashion Week, I developed an unhealthy obsession with trench coats. They looked extremely stylish on every woman who crossed my path, whether styled with sneakers, influencer heels, or baseball caps. I still regret not buying my dream trench while I was in Korea, but it’s okay — there are plenty of good options that don’t require a plane ticket.
Whether you’re looking for a classic trench from everyone’s favorite brand Everlane or an avant-garde take by indie Scandinavian label Dagmarr, now’s the best time to shop for a new spring jacket. Scroll ahead for our favorites.
