Trench coats: they're cool and classic and lend a polished vibe to your look — no matter what you happen to be wearing underneath. The sleek silhouette calls to mind fashion icons like Jackie O., Katharine Hepburn, or Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca (who can forget her trench coat flapping in the breeze?). We've seen lots of cool spins on the timeless trench this season, from Burberry's leather sleeves and acid-bright hues to Diane von Furstenberg's cropped, nylon iterations — and the best thing about the style is that it comes in multiseasonal fabrications and colors, making it an appropriate choice for any occasion. We've taken one definitively classic Burberry London Marystow Gabardine Trench ($1,095) and styled it five different ways — for work, play, and everything in between.

As proof of what it's worth, we've rounded up a week of inspiration from our favorite celebs. From Naomi Watts's sexier iteration (as a dress!) to Anja Rubik's cool-girl spin, the ways to wear this Fall layer are practically limitless. Just click through for a few fresh styling tips, then shop the looks for yourself.

There's never been a better time to invest in a Burberry trench coat. The brand is introducing an online bespoke service early next year, WWD explains, that will allow shoppers to customize the iconic coats to their individual likings with studs, monograms, color combos, etc. So you can mimic Rachel Bilson's, Blake Lively's, or Kate Bosworth's Burberry picks — or simply dream a design on your own! In fact, Burberry's Chief Creative Director Christopher Bailey explains, "there will be more than 12 million options." That should satisfy even the most selective of customers!

With all the negative talk surrounding fashion's earlier-is-better, off-season delivery schedule (see this month's Vogue article penned by Plum Sykes entitled "Seasons of Our Discontent"), some brands are feeling pressure to offer items in store that shoppers can buy now and wear now.
The idea of 'Buy Now, Wear Now' has been top of mind for Burberry, who is launching an April Showers collection this month. The 30-piece line is supposed to keep customers shopping until the first fall 2010 deliveries (shearlings! furs!) drop in June, while giving them the pieces they actually need today—namely transitional basics like trench coats, rain boots, and umbrellas.
Today Burberry also announced a 7 percent sales increase in the second half of last year.
