Trench Coats under $150.00

Trench Coats under $150.00

Trench Coats under $150.00 by superchicmom featuring a pink coat

I have been on the hunt for the perfect trench coat for probably three years now. Caveat- I don't want to spend more than $150. I know a lot of people would say that a trench is an investment but for my budget a $700+ Burberry just doesn't work. I don't wear a trench coat more than a handful of times a year but like to have one in my wardrobe because they work great as a dressier spring coat as well if the occasion arises.

Here are my trench requirements: 1) somewhat water resistant 2) shorter collar 3) belt at waist 4) not super long to keep it more casual 5) not too light or dark 6) not stiff . I tried the Gap trench but I was in between sizes and couldn't get the right fit (even tried petite medium).  I tried the J. Crew Factory trench but found it to be very stiff . Comfort is key for any coats because otherwise you just pass them over and turn to something else in your closet.

So I am going to order these two above and give them a try. The one on the left is from H&M and is $70.00. The coat on the right is from Zara and is $140.00. I would love to hear your suggestions especially if you have a trench you love!
