Trench coats are one of those things that can be a bit on the pricier side but you need to have atleast one in your wardrobe, because unfortunately pulling out your north face rain coat while your wearing office appropriate clothing is the quickest way to A. ruin your nice dress clothes by getting them stuck to the velcro of a more sporty raincoat and B. have your lower half soaked by the time you walk to work. I love Banana republic everything so when they came out with a trench coat I had to buy it. One of the reasons I love this coat so much because I got it for around $100, which for me was a win! Banana Republic constantly has just about everything on their site 40% off and I highly recommend becoming a card holder because they give you so many more additional discounts. The other staple I am so happy I added to my wardrobe was this reversible bag from American Eagle. It is amazing quality and can hold quite a bit of weight (I have tested the limit with my law books) Also my top is currently on sale in a different color for $9!
