In the Trenches

Posted by Ashley on February 15th, 2010

It seems like urban revival clothing lovers are not the only ones digging deep into their fathers’ closets, Hollywood royalty now enjoys rocking out oversized overcoats as well!

The art of the gabardine garment can be tracked back to 1910 and has managed to keep 2010 rocking a style of recycled fashion.

From class to crass, the trench continues to run rampant through celebrity style,

and although most of the Hollywood wearers choose to rock the boho-chic versions of this rediscovered revival, some celebs continue the art of stodgy style such as Whitney Huston at a recent performance in Japan.

My advice? If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. The over-sized trench coat adds some classic comfort to any outfit from punk to prep. If you’re vying for some celeb style, do us all a favor- avoid pulling a Whitney in tacky pleather, keep it simple sista and opt for androgynous sex appeal this winter accessory.
