STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Trench It Up

April 7th, 2015 at 2:00am

With the weather constantly changing day to day, it’s hard to keep up let alone know what to wear. One day it’s 50 degrees and the next it’s snowing and raining. That’s why this Fashionista is the perfect style inspiration. A light trench coat is the ideal piece to wear when the weather is unpredictable. It’s stylish, yet practical and depending on the print and pattern it can match almost any look.

A trench coat can instantly make a look more classic and sophisticated. By tying it, it can accentuate your waist and highlight your figure. It also can be worn for professional and casual occasions, whether you’re running to class or meeting for an interview. This coat can be quite handy and is the perfect style solution for this recent unpredictable weather.

In addition to my adoration for the classic trench coat, I also love this Fashionista’s use of black and hues of maroon and pink. While maintaining tones ideal for winter, her blouse slowly transitions to spring by introducing floral patterns. It’s fun to play with different colors and prints during the transition from winter to spring. By using bright colors like this Fashionista’s maroon pants, you can have fun with the possibility of spring. However by balancing the colors with some neutrals it still works for the current season. The colors also add a nice pop of color against the black backdrop of her boots and coat. This Fashionista is clearly ready for whatever comes her way and presents the ideal look for this crazy season.
