trench coat required
the importance of a reliable trench
- Pulls an outfit together properly on a rainy day
- Can make jeans look smart and sophisticated
- Is a forever piece, a classic
- Can be worn even when it’s not raining
Sometimes, I forget how essential a trench coat is. I’ve been in the market for a stone colored, double breasted trench for about 4 years. The one I want is a fortune, but I saw one the other day that was pretty great. I looked at it, and put it back.
I thought to myself:
It’s beautiful outside – why waste money on a trench?
Well, it has poured for the last 2 days. I’m still not going to buy the trench, but I’ve officially been reminded of their significance in a well rounded wardrobe.
The trench coat I’m wearing is from Zara (a few seasons ago). It’s a steel color, which goes with everything. I love to pop a bright colored scarf under my coat, it helps to liven up a rainy day.
