ELLE Pleated Trench Coat: Should I Get It?


Some assistance please: Earlier this week, I spotted this bright coral trench by ELLE for Kohl's online (see product pic above). I thought it looked good as featured in their spring lookbook, so today I decided to check it out in person—and it's actually really cute in person (I think).

The fabric has a nice sheen to it, the adorable collar frames the face nicely, and the pleat detailing along the cuffs and hem adds a subtle, chic touch. Overall, this trench fit me well and the color brought a smile to my face (despite the crummy lighting in the photo above).

The problem with this trench is that it's very lightweight, so it may not be warm enough for oftentimes chilly (and rainy) March weather. I'm also not loving the price, it's still over $50 on sale. What do you think, would you wear something like this? Should I get it or wait for something better to come along?
