April showers bring May flowers… and trench coats.
For decades, the spring trench coat has been a closet staple for the most stylish women all over the world. However, over time this functional piece has taken on much more stylish persona. In addition to the typical khaki colored trench (you know THE ONE!), women now have a rainbow of colors, cuts and fabrications to pick from.
Best of all, trench coats are no longer relegated to more stiff and formal functions — with today’s modern styles, you can wear a trench 7 days a week from work, to play and beyond. It’s one of those classic go-with-everything pieces in a woman’s closet that will never go out of style.
Some Style Notes:
Oooh-la-la! How French-girl fabulous!
While a tailored trench is typically paired with sharp pumps or flats, why not SNEAKERS and leather?! When worn unbuttoned and in a casual, cotton fabric, a traditionally stiff trench loosens up and quickly becomes downtown cool.
To create a sharp and evening ready look, try wearing your trench over an all black outfit with a pair of SINGLE SOLE BLACK PUMPS. The end result is streamlined and sophisticated and best of all, the forgiving cut of the trench will help hide any problem areas around the hips, thighs and bum.
Oh, and don’t forget to roll up your sleeves to give it a more playful vibe!
A trench in a lighter, drapier fabric is the perfect topper for a warm weather dress — and yes, even shorts! Basically, this one piece of outerwear will work with about 90% of what’s currently hanging in your closet.
