Spring travel can often mean unpredictable weather, from fluctuating temperatures to sudden downpours. When you've officially retired your parka for the season but you're not quite ready to get rid of jackets altogether, a lightweight trench can be the perfect seasonal transition piece.

The Tirsa Trench Coat from Universal Standard seamlessly combines comfort, style, and function. The brand is known for its size-inclusive line that ranges from 00 to 40, allowing you find the perfect fit for your body.

The jacket features a classic, tailored fit, double-breasted closure, and knee-length cut. And while the mid length is super easy to wear, the jacket is also available in a long, calf-length version. The fabric is treated to be water-resistant, so this jacket isn't just for show — it will actually protect you from the elements. Hidden stretch in the fabric also adds to the comfort.

A belt allows you to add shape for an even more flattering fit. It's fully lined, so it provides just enough warmth in addition to coverage. Buttons and buckle hardware on the sleeves and cuffs add classic flair without overwhelming the jacket. Plus, it's available in both khaki and black for ultimate versatility.

Like most of Universal Standard's line, this jacket has received rave reviews. "Just the right length, excellent detailing, casual or corporate ... the cut of the coat makes sense with my curves!" one reviewer wrote.

Another reviewer mentioned that the coat is the perfect seasonal transition piece. "It’s a perfect light layer for in-between seasons. I've worn it every day since it arrived."
