Ever since actress Priyanka Chopra rocked this trench coat gown at last year’s Met Gala and the Duchess of Sussex wowed the world in a sleeveless Burberry trench dress this summer, I’ve been curious to know if this is a look that’s accessible for the masses. It’s what I do when the steady days of 100-plus-degrees have relegated me to yoga pants.
One search on Shopstyle.com (which by the way, everyone should do…so efficient!) answered my question. There are many affordable options of this look, which is a stylish alternative to the plain Jane dress–you can click on the store names below to go straight to the dress. Anthropologie carries my favorite version by Eva Franco, while Saks Off Fifth has a crisp, white Calvin Klein trench dress. Finally, Nicole Miller has a detachable crop top to help style this off-shoulder version.
Especially in the desert, the trench dress is a more wearable option than its long-sleeved, bulky big brother–which doesn’t have a chance until our three days of winter.
