Try a new twist on a trench
It used to be that trenchcoats came in either black or khaki—but cover one with a tattersall pattern (Coach, $798) and you've got a cool, modern classic. Filmmaker Liz Peace, 28, loves how this menswear staple "taps into my English roots" and cinches it over khaki gabardine pants (Piazza Sempione, $595) to achieve a subtle shades-of-gray effect. For maximum impact and an even stronger British accent, pair with white and brown oxfords (Joan & David).
