ALL IN THE DETAILS: The Classic Trench

April 16th, 2015 at 2:00am

Most fashion blogs that you will read are all about the hip new trends that are taking the world by storm. They’re about what’s being shown on the runway and how we can incorporate these new styles into our everyday lives. This article is going to be a little bit different though. One of the most amazing aspects of owning clothing is being able to find a million and one ways to wear individual items. Let’s be honest, having the ability to make five completely different outfits with one specific piece is an absolute blessing. It’s always nice to be able to add new unique clothing items to your wardrobe, but those classic pieces, like a great pair of jeans or simple nude pumps, are what you will have forever. These are just a few of the basics that I believe should be in every Fashionista’s closet.

Speaking of Fashionistas, my article was inspired by the one who I spotted this week. On the topic of classic pieces, another one to add to the list above would be the trench coat. It is an item of clothing that will never go out of style. It has been around for years and years and continues to make a statement every time someone wears it. Beige, black, short or long, the trench coat will always be amazing. It could possibly be one of the most versatile pieces you have in your wardrobe. This Fashionista chose a chic all-black one. She dressed it down a bit with some skinny black jeans and a simple cream sweater, topping it off with brown heeled booties and an amazingly patterned scarf. Might I add that this Fashionista is simply on her way to class, yet she is completely killing the style game.

How To: Looking for a more elegant outfit? The trench coat doesn’t always have to be used casually. Pair it with a little black dress and some high heel shoes to make a sophisticated statement. This will add a dose of timeless chic to any Fashionista’s outfit.
