It’s 2023, so we all know a trench coat is an absolute wardrobe staple for spring. But this year, there’s a bit of a plot twist: the cropped trench coat.
I’ve been on a jacket kick in fall and winter. And I wanted it to continue into the spring season. I know that’s kind of difficult when the temps start rising, but adding some spring jackets to your wardrobe is totally doable. I’m starting to love a lightweight jacket almost as much as I love my third pieces. So I guess you could say I was really excited to see J.Crew launch a really, really cool cropped trench coat…that comes in two solids and a super fun leopard print.
How To Style A Cropped Trench Coat
The cropped trench coat is a PERFECT addition to your wardrobe for the spring season. Anything that I can consider an elevated basic is a sixth love language. I picked this vibrant blue color because I thought it was just SO fun. I can throw it on over so much – jeans and a sweater (like I’m wearing here), or you can dress them up with a mini skirt and heeled sandals. I love that you can wear it open or closed (and dare I say…belt it?). No matter how you style it, you know there’s also a million other ways to wear this jacket. I know this trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon (i.e. All the European girlies are wearing them).
Oh also another thing I loved about this specific jacket is that it still has classic trench details – tortoise buttons, back flap vent, and water repellent cotton. So the cropped trench coat still FEELS (literally and figuratively) timeless and is very versatile.
I browsed the internet a bit, and picked some super cute cropped options at all different price points.
