I don’t know what it is about trench coats but I just love them. As soon as I saw this belted mac trench online, I didn’t hesitate for one second. I’ve been on the hunt for a pink trench for so long! I wanted something with classic details, the right shade of pink and preferably one that didn’t require any alterations. This Burberry Gabardine trench coat is a dream but I needed something more affordable. I’m happy that I finally found this one to fill the void.
Sizing runs true to size. I’m wearing XXSP and it fits perfectly with NO alterations needed! Yes that’s right – no tailoring costs (yay!). Typically the sleeves are always long on me but these actually fit. Hooray! Clearly I’m excited. 🙂
Measurements of XXSP: Shoulders 15″, sleeves 21.5″, total length 33″
I love this coat and would definitely recommend however there are a few things I would change. I wish they would’ve added shoulder epaulettes to make it a true classic trench coat. The button tab cuffs were a bit poorly done but at least they added this feature. Why oh why wouldn’t they have lined this coat? You’d think for the price, it would fully lined. I’m confused why they skipped this part and I’m slightly disappointed. Nonetheless, I adore it and the shade of pink is exactly what I was hoping for.
The material is 100% cotton so you’ll need to steam it. I use this professional steamer and it’s been one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I’ve seen the exact one used at Ann Taylor and Loft. As I was pulling the link up, I noticed it now comes in pink too! Dang it (lol).
I love where the length hits me. Most trench coats are way too long on me but luckily this is available in petite and regular sizing. This is my third trench from Banana Republic and I’m very pleased. See my review HERE and an outfit post HERE. I have a feeling this coat will sell out pretty quickly so better grab your size while you can!
It’s very obvious I have an obsession with anything scalloped. Make sure to check THIS POST – one of my favorite outfits and perfect for work! What is it about these cute little edges that make everything just so pretty? I’m currently working on a separate post with all my favorite scallop items and picks (stay tuned). So happy to see they’re still on trend this year. If you’re looking for a white scalloped skirt similar to mine (last worn HERE), I found THIS ONE and THIS ONE. Both seem like they could be great options.
