Dear Shen Dove,
I have somewhat of a fatal weakness for trench coats. The essential trench coat can be worn with everything. It’s good as both a spring and fall transitional coat and you can find one to fit anyone’s style and budget. You can even wear one in the winter in the south, where it’s totally warm enough to do so.
I didn’t get my first trench coat until I was sixteen (a pale pink one), but since then I’ve become a bit of a collector and have never looked back. I most likely have far too many of them now, but what can I do? They’re my favorites.
- Club Monaco Harper Trench (Fall 2012, this season’s)
- Reiss dress (similar)
- Frye Villager Boots (Fall 2005, mid calf)
- Coach Legacy Molly Satchel (Fall 2012, classic style)
- AMY O. Jewelry Golden Goddess Necklace (current)
- Burberry sunglasses (current)
This trench is a past season Club Monaco. It has a few little leather details, which I like because it’s a twist on the classic trench coat. I also love coats with belts. This one looks good buttoned up or left open with the belt tied haphazardly.
This post is my submission for the latest Bloggers Do It Better challenge. See how everyone’s styling their coats this fall at Pretty Shiny Sparkly.
Have a fantastic weekend!
