Over the past few years, I have really been narrowing down my closet and making purchases on things that I know will last. There are many pieces in my closet that are iconic classic pieces, I have collected, including The Perfect Trench! I added this Burberry Kensington Trench to my wardrobe several years ago and it has never let me down. It is such a classic and truly the perfect trench coat.
This year I really want to take the time to highlight some of the staples, in my wardrobe, and just share some really great pieces with you. I am always so torn with what content to share because I know fashion can be quite tricky. My goal is to share outfits that you can use as inspiration and pieces that will treat you well, for many years, if you choose to add them to your wardrobe! I hope that helps and any feedback you have for me is always welcome! Now, onto the trench…
The Perfect Trench Coat
When I first got this trench coat, I was torn between this color and black. It comes in several different lengths– long, extra long, mid-length and short. Having never owned a trench coat, I quickly fell in love and this has truly become a must-have in my closet! this makes the perfect coat for rainy Spring and even the other months throughout the year. Virginia’s weather can be confusing and unpredictable at times. This past weekend we had single digit temperatures and now it’s supposed to be in the 60s on Friday! Naturally, the perfect trench is the best options for those cooler days. It shields from rain and is also so stylish!
I feel like there are certain pieces of clothing out there that just make you feel good in your own skin. This trench coat is definitely one of those pieces! For cooler temperatures, I like pairing it with black denim, this bag, and a sweater, like shown above. In the spring, I love wearing this trench coat with cute flats and white denim! It also looks so chic with heels. I could seriously go on and on, about this trench!
Obviously, this is an investment but there are a ton of other trench coats out there that look quite similar. I always push investing in good quality pieces that will last because they are truly worth the investment. They will last and you will love them for several years! However, making these purchases take time and if you aren’t ready to make a huge purchase, I have rounded up some of my favorite trench coats that are just as beautiful and are much more affordable than Burberry. I love all of these options and find that they are very similar to mine.
I found this one from London Fog which is truly almost identical to my Burberry trench! The detail on the sleeves, buttons, and wrap around the waist are identical. At a price point of $178, it is a much less expensive option for almost the same appearance! It also has a detachable hood for added functionality.
Lauren Ralph Lauren
This Lauren Ralph Lauren trench is a total classic and although the detailing isn’t as similar, to the Burberry, I think that the overall silhouette of this coat is a complete classic. This trench coat is probably my favorite of the alternative options and is quite affordable, $130!

Timeless Taste is all about finding pieces that will not go out of style and are worth the investment. It’s easy to be sold quantity in the world that we live in today. Unfortunately, we often lose quality along the way! I would love to share more posts like this, breaking down my favorite pieces and sharing a few other options for you.
