Approaching Autumn . . .

Yes, it's that time of the year, and I can't wait. 
I'm so sick of this summer, the temperature is driving me nuts. :S
I simply wanna put on my hat, my trench coat and enjoy the beautiful colors of the season.
Speaking of trench coats, let's take a look. 

An eternal classic coat style, and a ‘hot’ item for girls with attitude, whether is Spring or Autumn.
We loved her hair, her tiny tiara, the pearls, and we're loving the trench coat too.

Followed by a another modern icon, when it comes to personal style and fashion ...

... and the young, but so seductive Emma Watson in a longer t-coat.

The truth is that the trench coat, like the little black dress, pearls and diamonds is timeless.

The trench coat was one of the very first masculine looks adopted by women.  In the 1820s, a Scottish chemist concocted an innovative method to weatherproof fabric using rubber: and the trench coat was born.

Men donned the dapper trench coat–thanks to the skilled craftsmanship of Thomas Burberry – while serving in the military trenches of World War I.
The Burberry trench coat is one of fashion's most iconic pieces. The coat was created in 1901 when the founder Thomas Burberry proposed the garment as the official raincoat for British Army officers. Once World War I rolled around, Burberry altered the jacket slightly to include a few new design features, such as epaulettes, d-rings and straps. Because the jacket was primarily worn by soldiers fighting in the trenches, the rain coat was eventually dubbed the 'trench coat.'  

And how does it look today?

Of cource, where would fashion be if there wasn't any room for variations?

My personal and very fresh variation is the trench coat dress.

Do you like it and would you wear it? And how about you, favorite model or color for your trench coat?

We know they've been there and done that... in their own way. ;)
