The best wardrobe staples score high marks in both form, and function, which is what makes the trench such a wonderful (and very necessary) item in any woman’s closet. No matter what your personal style, you will find that a trench coat is a perfect edition to your outerwear collection.
A few reasons why I love this coat: It has a detachable liner, which really does add a lot of warmth for how thin the coat appears. Speaking of thin, it folds very nicely to fit into a suitcase and doesn’t take up too much room. The hood is also detachable so you can remove it when you don’t need it, but add it back if the weather gets windy or rainy. It’s water resistant (many trenches look like rain coats, but in fact, are not water resistant, so you’ll want to pay attention to the description if that’s a make or break quality for you!)
1. WITH LOAFERS AND A SWEATER FOR THE PLANE: In both spring and fall, my trench coat is often my outer layer of choice when it comes to travel. It’s lightweight, so it’s great for the plane (and also works as nice blanket!) Pair it with this insaneeellyy comfy tunic sweater. Loafers are also some of my favorites and they are amazing travel shoes. They slip right off and they require no break-in time–they’re so comfy from the get-go! They come in tons of colors as well (the black is a great Gucci dupe!)
2. WITH PASTELS AND OXFORDS: I think pastels and neutrals pair so well together–which is probably why I’m so obsessed with this outfit, yeah? ? I think tan and pastel pink in particular are the perfect combination. White jeans are my new favorite and they go perfectly with this faux wrap sweater and my favorite oxfords!
3.WITH HIGH-WAISTED JEANS AND HEELED SANDALS: Dark jeans are always more formal, as is a sleeveless shell top which can, again, be dressed up or down! For a more business-like setting, swap jeans for work pants and close-toed pumps! The trench acts as a super polished cherry on top!
