It was a rainy day on campus, and I have to admit I was dressed down in a boring rain coat and yoga pants due to the weather. I spotted this week’s Fashionista waiting outside the library for a friend, her outfit boldly standing out against all the black rain jackets and rubber rain boots of the day. I approached this Fashionista because of her outerwear. She rocks a light brownish green trench coat in lieu of a rain jacket and is looking ever so stylish doing so!
Trench coats are a classic, ranging in length from hip to mid-calf. They can come in a variety of materials and designs, and go with just about anything. This Fashionista’s trench coat hits her a little past her hips and is a bit more slouchy than the standard trench. This canvas trench coat could easily be dressed down, like she wears in the photo, or dressed up, with a skirt and heels on her way to an event. I love how this Fashionista wears a black tank, skinny blue jeans and black riding boots, allowing for her coat to be the center of attention.
This Fashionista carries a black and white patterned bag from Aldo, with light brown leather straps that mimic her coat’s casual feel. She also wears a fabulous pair of Etienne Aigner tall boots, which are perfect for the puddles she’ll have to hop over, but are totally chic. So friends, whether the weather is dreary or cheery, try a trench and you’ll be instantly sophisticated!
Spotted: In the Edun September runway show, many outwear pieces were featured, such as military inspired jackets and a few trenches, including a unique sleeveless trench in bright peach.
