I adore this vibrant one from Forever 21 because it is lightweight, which helps a lady maintain her cool despite the warmer Texas climate, and it is very versatile. For instance, I wore this trench during my fall travels to New York and other East Coast cities and now I find myself sporting it through the late winter/early spring. Continuing on the idea of versatility, a trench coat can also take you from day to night seamlessly! Trade in the nude lip for a pop of color like this one from Chanel in “Rouge Coco” and swop out the basic pumps for ankle booties like these from BCBG Max Azria (which are on MAJOR sale right now!!!).
Also, I always opt for a trench with a belt or any means to close the front as I like the additional outfit protection/coverage in case the weather calls for rain/hail/snow – you never know these days – or in case you spill coffee on yourself during a busy day and need to maintain a professional look. You fill in the blank as we all need some additional coverage on occasion… can I get an amen?! I could go on all day/night about my love for trench coats but instead I’ll post a couple of other looks from some leading ladies that I adore. Enjoy :-)
