15 Statement Trench Coats to Try This Spring, from Sequins to Denim

While trench coats started as utilitarian social distinction in the military, today, they’re a style staple worthy of a place in any closet. A preppy mid-length beige, khaki, or camel trench coat is a forever piece for our transitional seasonal wardrobes each spring and fall, with timeless sources of inspo including Audrey Hepburn caught in the cold rain in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, curious detectives inspecting evidence, and Sophia Loren in The Key. Just like April showers and May flowers, the trench coat appears in flocks every spring, on countless celebrities including Alexa Chung, Angelina Jolie, and Amal Clooney. Yet it never feels stale: Such a versatile staple piece inspires endless experimentation, and statement trench coats provide fresh takes involving vivid colors, texture and volume play, and unexpected fabrics and embellishments. Ahead, see 15 statement trench coats to take your style to the next level this spring, experimenting with everything from denim to sheer to cherry red.

Blue Jean Baby

Reformation Hayes Denim Trench Coat in medium wash indigo on model styled with gray top, denim mini skirt, and black boots

Reformation Hayes Denim Trench Coat $368.00


The two crowning classic spring outerwear styles—the denim jacket and the trench coat—come together in this stunning piece. This semi-slouchy, relaxed coat is cool, a bit tongue-in-cheek, and is easy to switch up by wearing it open or belted. We firmly believe that denim is a neutral, so this pairs well with everything from a white mini dress to jeans (we always love denim with more denim).

Slicked Back

Simon Miller Bruer Coat in shiny black polyurethane on model paired with black handbag

Simon Miller Bruer Coat $595.00


This super slick, glossy, and high-shine coat is evocative of molten liquid. It practically looks hand-polished and features roomy sleeves, a matching tie belt, and broad lapels. This statement trench is as weatherproof as it is fun to wear.

Petal Power

Derek Lam 10 Crosby Lexis Trench Coat in pastel pink dogwood on model styled with pink dress

Derek Lam 10 Crosby Lexis Trench Coat $695.00


This spring-ready trench coat is elegant and breezy, almost reminiscent of flower petals. The on-trend details—including grown-up bows on the sleeves and scarlet red piping—make it even more beautiful. This would of course work well with a sweet spring dress, but it would also look cool with jeans and a ribbed tank top for a bit of contrast both in terms of texture and vibe.

Leather Look

Babaton New Tabloid Trench Coat in rich mocha brown leather

Babaton New Tabloid Trench Coat $298.00


Leather trench coats appeared on numerous spring 2024 runways, including Bottega Veneta and Burberry (the trench coat OG), and have become a staple piece for celebrities including Dua Lipa and Kendall Jenner. We love this well-tailored faux leather, double-breasted, chocolate brown trench, which features a removable waist tie for additional cinching. It has a vintage feel to it without being stale, creating a sophisticated, dressier alternative to a classic cotton trench.

‘Clueless’ Chic

Tove Jacqui Trench in yellow multi plaid

Tove Jacqui Trench $2,059.00


While it’s a bit more muted than Cher Horowitz’s iconic plaid set, this sunny statement trench coat has major Clueless energy and is a perfect shade for spring. Pair it with your favorite butter yellow accessories for an on-trend monochromatic moment.

Metal Mania

Norma Kamali Double Breasted Trench to Floor in silver on model styled with silver dress

Norma Kamali Double Breasted Trench to Floor $555.00


This floor-sweeping, gown-like coat is a futuristic lightning strike. Norma Kamali is famous for her idiosyncratic outerwear designs (she pioneered the sleeping bag coat), and this dramatic reinvention of the trench feels very space siren chic.

Cropped Out

Pixie Market Cropped Beige Trench

Pixie Market Cropped Beige Trench $229.00


We love the idea of cropping a voluminous, oversized classic neutral trench into something short and sweet. This jacket is replete with subtle but effective details: double large lapels, camouflaged buttons, epaulets, and a simple belt. This is a great option for those who want to stand out without straying too far from the full-length, timeless version of the trench coat.

Bright Lights, Big City

Self-Portrait Sequin Coat in black

Self-Portrait Sequin Coat $800.00 $400.00


Every inch of this full-length, double-breasted, robe-like statement coat features gleaming black sequins, ideal for being the life of the party. It’s dressy and just warm enough to wear on chilly spring evenings, and it would be an amazing upgrade for casual pants and a t-shirt. If you really want to go for it, you can also wear it as a belted dress with tights and/or a bodysuit.

Fresh Cherries

Naked Wardrobe Vinyl Trench Coat in dark red

Naked Wardrobe Vinyl Trench Coat $260.00


Moody, deep red is one of the most prominent colors of the year across shoesbags, and more, and this coat looks like a freshly washed cherry. The high-shine finish is mesmerizing, and steel gray hardware details add a bit of contrast. It’s windproof, so it’s perfect for spring, and it also works well as an outer layer during the cooler months.

Crochet Accents

Diotima Rupture Coat in sand with crochet waist accents

Diotima Rupture Coat $1,990.00


Too cold for a full crochet look? This statement trench coat integrates crochet accents into a cutout waist, creating an interesting silhouette that balances practicality with bohemian spring energy.

Mad About Plaid

Nichole Lynel On Watch Plaid Detail Trench

Nichole Lynel On Watch Plaid Detail Trench $153.00


Two preppy classics—neutral tartan and the trench coat silhouette—come together via this timeless yet fresh statement that’s anything but boring. The details are everything here: We love the subtle back cutout and the color-blocked feel. We’d pair this with dark-wash jeans or trousers, a collared shirt, and loafers for an academia-inspired transitional weather look.

Slither Around

L'Academie Jo Faux Snakeskin Trench in beige and black on model styled with leather gloves and black shoulder bag

L’Academie Jo Faux Snakeskin Trench $318.00 $223.00


Snakeskin prints are having a moment, slithering their way onto handbags and boots on many of the 2024 runways. This faux snakeskin trench is sure to turn heads, and the voluminous sleeves and removable waist tie make the coat even more striking. Because it’s primarily beige and black, this style is surprisingly versatile and easy to style.

Sheer Brilliance

Planet by Lauren G Organza Trench Coat in midnight navy

Planet by Lauren G Organza Trench Coat $372.00


Sheer is in its sheer genius era right now, and this translucent silk organza piece is perfect for wearing over anything and everything for a barely there layer. It has the structure of a traditional, double-breasted belted coat, but with a seductive fluidity to it.

Twice as Nice

Alice + Olivia Nevada Oversized Two-Tone Maxi Trench Coat

Alice + Olivia Nevada Oversized Two-Tone Maxi Trench Coat $795.00


This beige-and-black, lengthy trench is a sharp and dualistic take on the classic, with details including oversized lapels and a waist tie. It plays into spring’s color blocking trend and is ideal for both day and night. It’s sophisticated enough to wear to work or out to dinner, and you’re essentially getting two coats for the price of one.

Baby Blues

J.Crew Collection Harriet Trench Coat in tailored satin in faded chambray blue

J.Crew Collection Harriet Trench Coat in Tailored Satin $498.00 $450.00


A particular shade of icy yet rich periwinkle is quickly becoming the “it” color of spring 2024. This statement trench coat, made from light-reflecting satin and featuring an elegant ribbon sash, is an ideal layer for throwing over a dress.
