To most, summer means peeling back those layers in exchange for a bathing suit poolside. Most of us, however, still need to go to work and still seek a jacket of some sorts to define our outfits. In the summer, it’s too hot to wear the classic and chic trench coat, but have no fear-sleeveless trench coats have come in full force to solve that dilemma.
Club Monaco paved the way for the summer take on a classic silhouette with its Prue Sleeveless Trench. Its exaggerated collar and lamb leather back panel keep it modern without sacrificing luxury. The beautiful khaki color goes perfectly with a neutral stripe and dark jeans. Spice it up with a bold statement necklace.
Trust DKNY to deconstruct and reconstruct the meaning of a sleeveless trench coat. Perfect for hot summers, this sleeveless trench has a tie around waist and hangs effortlessly. Pair with a high-necked neutral tank and a slim trouser to dominate any business atmosphere you find yourself in.
Just because most sleeveless trench coats are neutrals doesn’t mean a print can’t work just as well. Here’s an example from the renowned Mira Mikati of her artist’s rendition of New York City on a classic silhouette. Wear a work of art and remain on-trend with a special print like this one.
Veronica Beard’s brand remains one of the leaders in sleeveless trench coats. The belted look is immensely popular and adds a flattering, modern shape. Follow in this model’s footsteps with a turtleneck tank to elongate the neck and a colored, cropped pant to offset the dark navy.
