While the winter-weary among us may be tempted to stow our winter wardrobes the second temperatures (finally!) hit 55, it's smart to have a stylish trench on hand to stave off the occasional spring chill. Trade in heavy winter wools for feather-light fabrics, and swap drab black and gray for sweet, springy colors.
This modern Alfani Trench ($47.70, was $159) is a far cry from the itchy, bulky winter wear that bogged you down last season. The feminine bell sleeves make this a pretty, ladylike take on a traditionally masculine classic.
O Oscar's metallic trench ($149.25, was $199) combines a chic structured shape with elegant metallic slate blue for an architectural effect reminiscent of the city's glittering skyline.
Braving April showers becomes a walk in the park with London Fog's crisp white trench ($133, was $190). So-shiny silver detailing and roll-tab sleeves that allow your wrists to breathe make this pleated coat the ideal winter-to-spring transition piece.
