You know me. I like experimenting with style, but I also like good classics like the trench coat. In fact, I don’t just like it, I love it. The trench coat and me, it’s a love story that dates back to when I had my first one in elementary school. It was a light pink trench coat and I wore it to go to my ballet classes feeling like the most sophisticated girl! If you don’t already own a trench, I suggest you run and find one to complete your spring wardrobe. Today I’m also showing you how I’m wearing my new camel trench coat from RW&CO. I went for a casual chic look and it’s something I would wear everyday. Now onto why it is the best piece ever created…
You can wear it open or closed depending on your outfit and your mood. Pair it with dresses, a pleated skirt, jeans, anything and everything!
The trench coat is a timeless piece. It’s one you will see in magazines when they talk about “the 10 clothing basics you need”. And yes, it’s a piece you will have in your wardrobe FOREVER.
Wearing a trench coat makes you feel elegant and confident. For some reason, I always associate it with Kate Middleton because she’s the queen of coats (and of the perfect blowout). It’s a powerful piece. Wear it when you go to an interview, a date or a meeting when you really want to make a lasting impression.
It’s the perfect final touch to complete your look. In this outfit, I’m using the trench as a ‘palette cleanser’ to soften the pattern mixing going on with my blouse and neck scarf (see last photo).
April showers bring May flowers… that’s why you need a good trench coat to look stylish in the rain!
Do you love the trench coat as much as I do?
