A trench coat serves as a smart layer atop your activewear and, well, pretty much everything in your wardrobe. Its versatility could be why it's become a go-to third piece for cool girls like Gigi Hadid this spring. (The supermodel's been seen sporting several different styles over sweatshirts, track pants, leggings, jeans, and dresses lately.)

And it's not just Hadid who's giving the classic overcoat her sartorial stamp of approval. Industry insiders are heralding the trench coat as an It piece for transitioning between seasons. Going beyond classic cuts, the quintessential topper is modernized via fresh fabrics, new colors, and unique detailing.

“We saw over 10 different options on the Céline runway,” says Marina Larroude, fashion director of Barneys New York. “One of my favorites is a sheer one from Calvin Klein.”

Endlessly versatile, Larroude says the hero piece can be styled various ways for modern appeal. “I’m seeing girls wearing it over crop tops, leggings, and heels, or simply over jeans and shirts when they want a classic look.”

Below are 10 trench coats from classic to colorful to transparent, for a so-now look that’s also timeless.

Another current-yet-classic fashion staple that's having a moment: black-and-white color blocking. Tone-on-tone designs continue to be one of the top trends in workout wear this season
