Fashion Flashback: The Trench Coat

The Japanese movie poster for The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

This past weekend was rainy and dreary, so I pulled my trench coat from the closet just in case.  The trench always reminds me of classic cinema icons: Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, Steve McQueen in Bullitt, Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard in Breakfast at Tiffany's, Anna Karina in Made in the USA, Catherine Deneuve in The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.  It's one of my favorite pieces of outerwear and is classic and versatile, whether paired with a pencil skirt at the office or a casual floral-print dress on a rainy afternoon.
