Lands' End, now $79.99
Norma Kamali Trench and boots $47
Gap trench coat $88.98-$98, petite and tall avail.

Boden Rainyday Duffle, $148  

Trench coats really are everywhere right now.  From Burberry to Walmart, there is a wide range of this classic style.  I have a London Fog, but have decided that it's too dated and dowdy to wear another season (I get a sinking feeling when I put it on).  The Boden coat shown is a duffle, so not actually a trench, but I love it's classic style anyway and it's wallpaperish pattern.  I'm not a big celebrity watcher, but Kate Middleton looked great in a trench coat when I saw her on tv when I was at the Y in the gym.  So, trench or duffel?  Most trench coats come in classic colors: black, khaki, maybe olive drab.  A few places, like Lands' End and Walmart, have branched out to making fuchsia, bright green, and red.  Lined coats offer more warmth for cooler days.   Which one is your favorite?
