Classic effortless style, patterned after the French women who blazed the trail and demonstrate that simple is sophisticated, more often than not entails a classic trench coat. And as I mentioned in this podcast episode when discussing the style tips of the French woman, as much as I want to purchase a Burberry trench, my budget has told me to wait. However, there are many quality mid-range designs that embody that classic silhouette and structure, and one worth checking out is London Fog.

Currently I have had in my closet for over five years and worn regularly J.Crew’s Icon trench (currently 30% off with promo code BIGSALE) which is mid-thigh length – perfect to wear over jeans but not ideally worn over a dress or a skirt as the coat’s length is far shorter. And so, I have been on the lookout for a trench that hit at or preferably just barely below the knee. Why? I need a versatile trench that can be worn with jeans but also with any of my pencil skirt ensembles or dresses. And as luck would have it, I came across London Fog’s Gillian long-trench in stone or black.

I was over the moon, and even more so when I paid less than $140. If you too are in the market for a classic trench, stop by Macy’s (save 30% with FRIEND promo code) or the London Fog website and discover a label that offers classic quality styles at affordable prices.

As it is a classic item for a capsule wardrobe, this coat can be found in TSLL’s Capsule Wardrobe Boutique in All-Season. Just in case you aren’t ready to buy right now, rest-assured, you will know where to find it when you are.

  1. I wholeheartedly echo this recommendation! I bought this trench in February from Nordstrom, after searching for over a year for the perfect combination of color (I got it in stone), weight, style, and price. I think I paid full price for it, but even at $160, it’s worth it for a classic coat from such a reputable brand. I wear it all the time (even in Texas!) and I couldn’t be happier with it. I didn’t even know it had the gorgeous pale blue lining until it was delivered – that was just a lovely little bonus.

  2. I could use a London Fog style trench, but no money for it just now. I must pay loans down. Other wise a good post and thank you for sharing.

  3. Ive got a short traditional khaki and a long black trench…timeless. Worth investing in. Same idea as our furniture…buy one good piece a year and in 10 you will have core pieces that will be with you the rest of your days.-Laurel Bledsoe

  4. I just bought this at Macy’s and picked it up this week! (I pre-saled it!) This was such a great find. I had been looking for an update to an old trench that was just not cutting it anymore and fell in love with London Fog’s classic look. Great pick!


  5. I bought it in black, too. I have received it and I am so pleased. Thank you for the recommendation! I have been looking for a good replacement for an old one. This is perfect for me.
