There are always those pieces in your closet that no matter what your mood is beforehand, the second you put it on, it acts as an immediate mood-booster, making you look and feel good. For me, that piece right now is a leather trench coat. I purchased one this past spring at a vintage shop, and let’s just say I’ve been waiting all summer to put it to use. Whether it’s over a pair of sweatpants or a knit dress, the Matrix-inspired coat will have anyone looking put-together, even if you just rolled out of bed. (Trust me—I’ve tried it.)
Leather trenches are all over the market right now but you can end up scrolling through dozens of pages just to find the one you want. Don’t fret because I come bearing good news: The search is over. Below is a roundup of 19 on-trend leather coats, along with some outfit inspiration from our favorite Instagram girls along the way.
