STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Trendy And Timeless In A Trench Coat

Fall is a great season for a variety of reasons: pumpkin spice lattes, apple picking, Halloween and, of course, fashion. The beginning of October can be a little confusing when it comes to dressing trendy and comfortable. Often, the mornings are cold and damp, but as the day progresses, the sun comes out and the temperature rises. How do you look great while dressing for an unpredictable season?

I ran into this week’s Fashionista on her way to class and I couldn’t help but admire how weightless and versatile her look was! She rocked a classic trench coat, a loose fitting, detail oriented racerback, denim jeans and small suede booties. Her light colored American Eagle Outfitters jeans downplayed the coat and boots, making it comfortable and casual enough for an afternoon class. The racerback shirt paired with the trench coat that this Fashionista is wearing complement the changing season because it makes the outfit flexible to the fluctuating weather.

What drew my attention to this Fashionista’s outfit specifically was the timeless trench coat that she sports. Trench coats are forever in style. They can be dressed up with a pair of heels and a dress, or they can be played down with jeans and boots, like this Fashionista exemplifies. A trench coat can be worn in all types of weather as well. They are perfect for chilly autumn mornings, a rainy downcast or even a clear night. They can be worn in the fall, winter or spring. Trench coats are without a doubt a staple in a chic wardrobe.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “As important and fun as it is to look fashionable, it is equally important to be comfortable. There are certain pieces of clothing that are timeless for a reason—I wear this trench coat as often as possible because it is adaptable and can be worn on a number of occasions. It also enables me to have the best of both worlds: style and comfort!”
