Q: What’s the one investment piece I should splurge on this spring?

Your best bet would be a good-quality, classic trench coat. A belted, double or single-breasted trench hemmed to just above your knees is the most flattering, easy-to-wear style for every figure type. It will never look dated with your nine-to-five wardrobe or with jeans and loafers for a more polished but casual look. You’ll find trenches in every colour from bold orange to neutral camel and in every fabric, including silk to rubber-coated, waterproof cotton.  –Elizabeth Cabral
