The Trench Dress

From Left: Banana Republic Silk/linen Safari dress, $150 at bananarepublic.com; Burberry Belted Round Neck Dress, on sale for $537 (down from $895) at saks.com

Trench coats are eternally chic, and the trench dress is an even chicer option for the warmer months when coats are no longer necessary. These two affordable options are easy additions to any woman's wardrobe; one can wear them for work or play, and the belted silhouette is flattering and effortless. Switch the included belt for one of your own to customize the look, but don't mix trends (avoid gladiators with this look). Instead, opt for streamlined pumps or sandals with these, and for a bolder look, choose a yellow or purple handbag.

Love the Burberry; in fact, the image has been stashed in my file of potential blog photos for awhile.
