The trench coat is such an iconic piece of clothing. From Audrey Hepburn kissing George Peppard in the rain in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to the flasher most likely getting arrested for his indecency, the trench coat is as important to one’s wardrobe as the little black dress (another Breakfast at Tiffany’s staple) or the white button down (not a flasher’s staple). What is perhaps the best part about trench coats is that they are seasonless. Wear one over a cozy cashmere sweater and a light biker jacket in the winter or atop your floral sundress in the spring and no one is going to second guess your choice of outerwear — including you.

How do I know this? Because trench coats are one of the only options of outerwear that’s sold year round. Unless you’re hitting up places like The Outnet or Yoox you’re likely not going to find a trench on sale, though it’s very easy to find one that’s reasonably priced (like the one I’m wearing right herrrrrr).

But enough about the trench. Let’s discuss what’s really going to get you twinkling on this fine Tuesday. These burgundy Denimocracy jeans are about as comfortable as they come (read: there’s a ton of stretch), and I want you to experience their comfort as well. So, I’m giving away a pair of these butt cupping stretchy lovers to one of your fine specimens. Here’s what you have to do to enter bo benter:

1. Like Denimocracy on Facebook (here)

2. Tell me you liked their Facebook page in the comment section below.

3. Also tell me the superpower you wish you had in the comment section below.

I will announce the winner on Friday! GOOD LUCK CHUCK!

The giveaway is now closed. Thank you all for entering!

Congratulations to Emily! An email is coming your way! Stay tuned for more giveaways soon!

    Liked on FB :) the superpower I’ve always dreamed of having, which I suppose could be possible is to be able to fluently speak and understand every since language ever spoken. I would love to be able to understand everybody and be able to return that understanding. On a a different more fun note though, it would be cool to be able to do some online shopping or pinteresting and have everything I love to be automatically in my closet..like those gorgeous Denimocracy jeggings <3

    liked Denimocracy on FB! this is so weird that you’re asking what super power we’d most want to have, because my boyfriend and i just discussed the very same thing (in unnecessary depth) during a 6 hour drive to PA last weekend. my final decision? i want to be able to control and move things with my mind like Matilda…pretty awesome i think!?

    I liked Denimocracy on Facebook! If I could have any superpower it would definitely be to fly. I know so cliché but hey flying would ential the most freedom anyone could ask for and everyone knows all good things are wild and free. If not flying, I’d have the superpower of speed. I love running. Clears the mind and it’s relaxing.

    I liked their facebook page!
    I would love to have the superpower of flying because I would never walk to my college classes again! Unless I was looking as stylish as I would in these jeans!

    I liked them on bookface! I also super like the tie-dye pair on their header there…. If I could have any super power, it would totally be mind control. Then my broke ass could walk into any store, and will the shop employees into letting me walk out with bags and bags of goodies.

    i just liked it on Facebook on my friends account because I don’t own a Facebook! She gave me permission to use hers though. :P I guess my superpower would be to be the girl in the mirror. I could visit my friends in their mirrors!! That would be so chill… Everytime you think you see something move in your mirror, that would be me trying to steal your fashion sense :D jk in all seriousness being the girl in the mirror would be legit.

    hi I just liked it on Facebook!! My friend let me use her account because I don’t have a facebook. I guess the superpower I wish I had would be to be the “girl in the mirror.” so watch out if you think you see something move in your mirror, it could be me trying to steal your fashion sense… :) jk but it would be so legit if I could visit my friends in their mirrors.

    If I could have any superpower it would probably be invisibility. I’d never pay to fly on a plane or see a concert ever again lol.
