Classic Essentials - No.1 The Trench Coat


When I think of classy clothing, the first thing that comes to mind is the trench coat.
The classic trench is such a versatile piece and goes along with many of the other pieces I 
consider my closet essentials.

Lusting over : Burberry's Classic Trench - $1669

Affordable alternative : Gap's Classic Trench $128

Styling Ideas -- Try it like this!:
* A little black dress with court heels, simple flats, or strappy platform sandals
* A nautical striped dress with boat shoes or vintage neutral tone sandals
* A basic neutral color or black brando or v-neck tee with skinny jeans and converse, simple flats, strappy platform sandals, or court heels
* A gondolier striped tee with cuffed skinny or boyfriend jeans and strappy platform sandals, boat shoes, or vintage neutral tone sandals
* A plain white, light blue, or black oxford shirt and black skinny jeans or slacks with court heels, strappy platform sandals, simple flats, or converse.
* A neutral tone knit sweater with black or dark wash denim skinny jeams and simple flats

Other than the styling ideas I've listed, there are endless ways to style a trench coat!
It's a great piece that you can wear and style year-round your entire life (because classy never really goes out of style).

What do you think of the Classic trench? Do you own one? How do you style yours?
I'd love to hear!

Stay Tuned.
