Wardrobe Staples: Trench Coat

Wardrobe Staples: Trench Coat

By now we’ve all stored our wool jackets and down coats until the next fall/winter season. However summer’s not quite here yet, so when it’s not hot but too chilly to go out without an extra layer, what do you wear?

The key to in-between season dressing is wearing layerable pieces. A well constructed trench coat makes for a great item to pull a look together on those unseasonably chilly days. This classic outer-wear piece can be layered over a tailored and sophisticated business suit for the office, worn with a pair of crisp white jeans for an elegant and polished daytime ensemble, or even over a denim-on-denim weekend look.

Take that button down shirt from his side of the closet (or an oversized button-down of your own)  and style it with a sleek pair of black leather leggings, strappy heels (or mules), and a nice clutch for a fresh and effortless look that goes from day-to-night.

Tricky Trend: Blazer Vest

Tricky Trend: Blazer Vest

How are you updating your look this fall? One worthy and trendy investment that I’ve seen come to the fore is the slightly over-sized, perfect for layering, long and lean blazer vest.

This street-chic staple is the perfect transitional item from day-to-evening. Wear it over crisp and tailored monochrome separates (at the office) for a clean and polished look, or style this tricky trend with bold accessories (chunky gold bangles) and a pair of leather leggings for a sophisticated downtown date night look! Could this mid-weight, contemporary statement topper be a look that you would induct into your wardrobe?

How to Style It: The Trench Coat

How to Style It: Summer Coats

A trench coat is a must-have staple, particularly for the transitional weather between summer and fall – a lightweight look that provides just enough coverage for when that crisp breeze kicks in. One can opt for a jean or cropped jacket to protect themselves from the elements, but I think a trench coat is not only iconic, but also makes for a far more fashionable choice whilst withstanding unpredictable weather.
