Trenches have made a comeback this fall season. Trench coats are no longer the jacket that you may think only Sherlock Holmes wears, but instead a staple garment in every Fashionista’s wardrobe. Several fashion houses have revived the trench this year by adding small style elements that take the garment to the next level. Burberry, inventors of the classic trench coat, have even added mixed media to their coats by embellishing wool panels and and bow belts. Burberry has also added a bit of flair to the classic silhouette by including a chic peplum.
Want this look but can’t afford burberry prices? It’s easy! This Fashionista is wearing a classic black six button trench with boots and a large bag to finish the look. If you love the classic black look, H&M has the perfect trench for you. However, if you feel daring, try this faux leather contrast trench. Neither of these styles describe your taste? Don’t worry! Just do a simple search on Polyvore.com and several trench coats in varying price ranges will be available for you right on your computer screen.
Now that you’ve found the right coat, all that’s left to do is find the perfect accessories. This Fashionista went with an oversized bag, which is perfect for those in school: your books will fit. If you don’t have class to attend, you may want to pick an accent scarf. Depending on the color of your jacket, it can give you just enough color to stand out in a crowd. As for shoes, my favorite pair to match with a trench coat is an ankle boot with a medium heel. This pair of wedge ankle boots from Target will look great.
So have fun and good luck styling in the trenches this fall/winter! I'm sure you can find the perfect outfit to keep you warm and stylish!
