STYLE GURU STYLE: Let's Talk Trench

Everyone needs the perfect trench coat. You can dress it up or down. It is perfect for transitioning from fall to winter, and from day to night. It is a staple item that has been reappearing through out the fashion industry since the 1850s. It can be worn by men, women and even children. It is a timeless item that is versatile and classy.

My inspiration comes from Victor Alfaro’s pre-fall 2016 collection. I stuck with the same colors in his collection, which included tan, black, red, white and gray. His collection also incorporated some gold colors within the accessories. I chose to dress up this look, but you could dress it down easily with black riding boots, jeans and a black long sleeve shirt.

To create my look, I paired a black fit and flare dress with black tights and black suede ankle boots. I added a classic tan trench coat to represent Alfaro’s collection. To accessorize, I added gold drop earrings, a couple rings and a Louis Vuitton tote bag.

I kept my makeup simple for this look. I defined my brows using the Anastasia dip brow pomade in ash brown, winged my eyeliner with my Kat Von D liquid liner and then added some color using Julep’s it’s whipped matte lip mousse in bisou.

A trench coat is something one could keep forever. Trench coats come in many colors, patterns and materials; so there is something everyone will like. Paring your outfit with something like a trench coat can transform your look, and take it to another level.
