Trench coats are an iconic staple–whether it’s going to an interview or layering on a night out on the town, this useful garment of clothing adds a feminine and chic look to any outfit. I am absolutely obsessing over this coat this season, the material is not as thick as most coats, so it’s a perfect transition piece for the fall. While I paired the versatile coat with this adorable ruffled dress, I cannot wait to wear it with a more casual look consisting of a pair of boyfriend jeans and nude stilettos.

While finding a lightweight trench coat was at the top of my list for this season’s purchases, I also was in the search for the perfect pair of suede booties. I found the perfect pair in a beautiful, rich cognac color. I think the fringe adds such an adorable yet flirty vibe! The trench coat and the boots add a sense of warmth to the gray dress, something that truly captures the fall season full of pumpkin spice lattes and the changing colors of the leaves.

When it comes to all coats, I think it is highly important to try them on. Each coat fits differently on every individual, so be sure the coat hits at a proper length and cinches at the right places. Additionally, it is crucial to remember if the coat fits a specific lifestyle or not. If the fall season plummets in temperatures quite rapidly, perhaps it is necessary to choose one with a material that keeps the warmth insulated!

Since the fall season is now upon us, I cannot help but smile as my favorite season is here. The ability of adding layers opens a whole new door of opportunities when planning an outfit. I look forward to wearing this trench coat to picking out the perfect pumpkin in the pumpkin patch to standing in the stadium during a football game. The possibilities are endless!

How To: Find a trench coat that fits in with your lifestyle–if it’s raining, opt for one with a wax coating; however, if falls where you are tend to be on the warmer side, choose one with a more lightweight material. Do not be afraid to repeat trenches in your outfits since this piece is so versatile in casual to even more formal looks.
