Whether I’m headed out to a quick brunch or picking up the latest issue of Vogue, this timeless piece is what I love to pop on over my black sweater.It offers that Parisian chic look everyone is always striving for. Ok, that I’m always striving for.  This classic light weight jacket is a must have especially with spring just around the corner. It is the perfect coat to keep you warm but not too hot.


A trench coat can be styled in so many ways. You can add it over the top of your favorite little black dress or you can wear it with skinny jeans and a striped shirt. You can accessorize it with your favorite handbag or add a simple clutch. Wear your hair up or down, it doesn’t matter. That is the true beauty of a trench coat, it goes with everything.  It’s neutral color is versatile offering you the ability to wear it with just about any color. So grab a trench coat and that outrageous red dress you’ve been dying to wear and go out and have fun.



You can get a trench coat from just about everywhere. Topshop, J.Crew, Banana Republic, or (if you got the cash or a rich boyfriend) Burberry. The one I have is from Banana Republic. The material is fantastic and the coat is the perfect weight, offering me warmth but not making me a sweaty mess. I own a petite size due to the fact that my torso and shoulders are quite small. So if you are more of a petite build, like I am, Banana Republic’s trench coat is perfect. But no matter your size, the right trench coat for you should be fitted. A trench coat should never be bulky and baggy.


So whether you’re headed out during the day for work or in the evening for a night out on the town, don’t forget to grab your trench coat as the perfect cover up to your fabulous outfit. Always keep this classic piece in play and it will never let you down.
