When Akris opens its 2,869-square-foot boutique on Newbury Street this month, we’ll have a new destination for all of our resortwear desires. The Swiss fashion house, known for its smart tailoring and daring prints, brings a European slant to the genre, as exemplified by this silk-taffeta trench. Lightweight and reversible, the coat can match your myriad moods: Wear it with the Dutch tulip fields facing out for a night on the town, or flip it around for a classic buttoned-up khaki look that occasionally flashes hints of summer.

“Dame” reversible silk-taffeta trench coat, $4,390, Akris, 29 Newbury St., Boston, akris.ch.
