Spring’s Best Transition Piece: The Trench

I am certainly not the only one who loves a trench.  We all do, right?  But, I feel that the trench is especially well designed for pre-spring days that are cooler (often by twenty degrees or so) during the morning.   When a lightweight trench is layered on top, it can be cinched tight to provided added warmth by morning and thrown over the shoulders or left un-tied by afternoon.
