I hope that you’re having the best week! It has been a great week around here! It’s March Madness, my favorite time of the year!!! I cannot wait to watch all of the NCAA Basketball Tournament games!!! Today, I want to share a detailed review of one of my favorite recent purchases, the J.Crew Collection Trench Coat in Laminated Linen. I knew that I had to have this beauty the moment that it was released. The color, the design, the details, and the quality are all superb. And, this is the perfect spring (and beyond) layer.
What I love most about this trench is that it is a classic statement piece that will be in my wardrobe for years to come. A trench coat is hands down one of my favorite wardrobe musts. I love that a trench can be dressed up for work with classic dress pants or dressed down for the weekends with distressed denim. And, I love that a trench coat is the perfect transitional piece and layer when the weather is not too cold or not too hot.
Styling the J.Crew Collection Trench Coat in Laminated Linen
The bold green color of the J. Crew Collection Trench Coat in Laminated Linen makes it easy and fun to style in a variety of ways in my opinion. I went the classic route with my styling in the images below and I paired my trench with a white classic poplin button-down and a fun pop at the bottom with sequin slingback heels. I would also style this trench with a fun graphic t-shirt, a short-sleeve cashmere t-shirt, or a basic v-neck t-shirt. A bright long-sleeve striped shirt or dress would also look great with this beautiful trench coat. And, there are a variety of shoe options. Again, the versatility and cost per wear is outstanding!

A rattan clutch or a bucket bag would work well as the perfect accessory to this bold colored trench. I went with a straight-leg jean, but I love the idea of pairing this trench with distressed denim, too. The styling possibilities are endless. In terms of fit, I purchased my typical size 16 so fit is TTS in my opinion. And, I felt super comfortable even with a layer underneath the trench. The trench is structured without being too restrictive.
