STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Mastering The Trench

February 26th, 2015 at 2:00am

It’s been proven that the trench coat is one timeless piece of apparel. Season after season, the trench coat always seems to be reinvented in some shape or form. I’m almost sure we’ve seen it all sleeveless, oversized and in a variety of colors. It doesn’t matter if it’s in the classic color and shape, or navy and sleeveless, the trench coat will forever be a staple piece to have within your wardrobe.

I know for some time, the first thing the trench coat was associated with was Law and Order and detectives. That’s definitely not the case today. The first thing that I think of when it comes to a trench coat would be Burberry, who is well known for their remarkably designed trench coats. Over time, the trench coat has become more personable and diverse. It’s no longer considered preppy and can be worn by those who are edgy, classic and even by those who have a bohemian-based style. The trench coat is a great layering piece to complete a variety of outfits, ranging from the little black dresses to jeans and T-shirt.

This Fashionista proves the point that has been proven many times before. The trench coat is a classic that can be manipulated to fit in with your very own style. A trench coat can bring together and dress up an outfit, all at once. This Fashionista spiced up the typical jeans and T-shirt ensemble and opted for a colored pant, black T-shirt and oxfords. The printed scarf ties in and completes the look. This Fashionista’s number one rule is to not to be afraid to add pieces to your look. She fearlessly and effortlessly added statement pieces that made her ensemble stand out.
