When in doubt wear a TRENCH. And if you’re able to find one in a bright color even better!
Trench coats and trench vests have come a long way. They have become great statement pieces and what’s best is that they also come in bright, fun, inviting colors. Previously, I associated trench coats with rainy days. Since I was 13 I’ve had my one trench coat that I would pull out from the waaayyyy back of my closet a handful of times a year on crazy rainy days (which are few and far in between here in LA) or whenever I wanted to look a little more “professional.” My trench was beige, had dark floral lining on the inside, and big black buttons at the front–truly nothing special. Finally, I parted ways with it when I cleaned out my closet to make room for new clothes. Never did I think I would ever buy another trench again, let alone a blue trench. But, I’ve been proved wrong! 🙂
The other day while shopping at I found a great collection of trench coats and vests at many stores from Bloomingdales to Forever21. I didn’t buy any first since I was still unsure I would like to try this trend. As I kept going from store to store I noticed how versatile a trench can actually be as it doubles as a jacket and lends itself to endless layering options. Great for a casual lunch or a dressy evening event.
What’s your take on the trench, wether it be a coat or vest?
