I love the look of a classic trench coat. A lot of people think Burberry when they think of a trench coat but at nearly $2000 for the brushed satin, the Burberry trench coat it is spurge even by Gossip Girl standards. I took a look at several websites and stores but I wanted a combination of quality, workmanship and value. So I found this Jessica Simpson trench coat in Nordstrom and thought it was a very good value. The trench itself is has the beautiful sheen of satin and a very structured look. For comparison the Burberry trench is shown below.
