    In The Trenches Vintage Inspirations Spring 2017

    Originally a hybrid of the Mackintosh and greatcoat, the now iconic trench coat was first designed to keep soldiers dry and camouflaged during WWI. Flash forward: trench coats have become a wardrobe staple for Spring 2017 as seen on the runways and red carpet alike. Functional and timelessly chic, the fashionable trench coat is not just a "flash" in the pan. Think less Inspector Clouseau and more Holly Go Lightly in a rainbow of colors, classic khaki, a variety of fabrics, patent leather, and leather & suede, too. All vintage eras and styles for both men and women are encouraged -- show us what you've got!

    Coincidentally, this parade appears during the week of the 100th anniversary of WWI, when The Trench was invented!
