What makes the perfect trench coat? Is it that creamy shade of camel? Maybe it’s that the length has to be just right — not too long, not too short. Perhaps it’s that the waist has to be cinched just enough to emphasize your figure. Our bet is that the perfect trench has all of these qualities. Though we could spend eternity searching for this dream coat, it looks like we won’t have to — since Meghan Markle just wore the perfect fall trench coat.
We need this in nude and baby pink ASAP.
While Meghan’s version is in the classic off-white that goes with everything, we also can’t help but imagine wearing this in our signature shade of millennial pink.
Clad in all black and gray pumps, Meghan made her trench pop. Her simple look of a black top and black jeans was balanced out by this light-colored trench, which hits right under the knee.
Fall weather is always a bit unexpected, going from warm to frigid in the span of a week, which is why we live for chic pieces we can layer. And yes, that’s partially why we’re so obsessed with this coat. It’s light, but not too light, and it seems like it would be a breeze to layer with. Whether you’re wearing a short-sleeved top like Meghan, or a sweater and leggings, this piece will upgrade your outfit instantly.
