During this season of gusty winds and unexpected rain showers, take a fashion cue from Nine d’Urso, the chic young daughter of Parisian style icon and author Ines de la Fressange, and invest in a wear-forever trench. Rain or shine, a trench works beautifully with everything from denim to dresses and instantly makes you feel pulled together.
