Fashion labels can be tremendously temperamental from season to season, so it’s nice when a brand actually earns a reputation through consistency. Even with the ebb and flow of seasonal trends, Miu Miu has become known for great little coats that last ($495 to $1,130). Its trenches are gabardine for day, silk for evening, and twill for when it rains. The styling is on the classic side of fashionable, which makes the label rather worth it for the price. Your Miu Miu trench will outlive many seasons and trends.
