If you’re searching for something you’ll actually wear this summer, consider a trench. Surprised? Don’t be. Famously useful (think Inspector Gadget and Carmen Sandiego – both devout trench-wearers), this breed of coat seemingly demands a certain swagger. (Mine, a mint-toned number by Agnès B, has become a fast favorite.) And even if summer daytime dressing is now a ubiquitous fait accompli of tailored shorts and breezy tees (ideally paired beneath a fitted blazer or cardigan), think of those cool, crisp evenings. Or rain! Both are actual scenarios that necessitate light, thoughtful outerwear. Once again, consider a trench.
