High Vs. Low: The Metallic Trench

If you’re looking for a new coat with a little edge, the metallic trench might fit the bill. But since we’re thinking it could look dated, oh, twelve minutes from now, we don’t suggest you drop a lot of bills on one. Here, we’ve got three versions—low, mid and high. So, which is which?

The high? On the right, a Robert Cavalli safari trench, $1,159—on sale—at eLuxury.com. The mid-priced version is on the left, a Ralph Lauren metallic trench at Macy’s, $219. And you probably guess the low—in the middle, from Wet Seal, but for $19.99 it’s a steal for a fun passing trend.
