I can’t wait until it gets a bit warmer so I can start wearing trench coats. They are an absolute wardrobe staple, so if you don’t have one already, go get one! They are super stylish and such great value for money that you won’t ever feel guilty about splurging on this one. Apart from wearing them during transitional seasons, you can wear them during breezy summer days, rainy days, and for the lucky ones who get to experience it, sunny winter days.
My favorite part is that you can give it any avatar that you want to. For a casual look channeling Katie Holmes, wear a trench over your jeans and tee and complete the look with a nice scarf and sunglasses. This look is effortless, yet so chic! For work, chose something in beige or bronze, left unbuttoned over a ruffled blouse tucked in tailored black pants. Got a date? Bring out your inner femme fatale, by wearing a trench over a short dress, a killer pair of stilettos and dramatic red lipstick. He won’t be able to get his eyes off of you! Of course, if you’re feeling risqué, or if it’s your man’s lucky day, you can wear it with nothing but your hot bare body inside; but be careful with this one as it’s prone to many a wardrobe malfunctions. After all, you don’t want it to be everyone’s lucky day! 😉
It will be a crime if I talk about trench coats and not mention Burberry’s spring/summer 2010 collection. How glam are the coats? I just loved everything about them—the shorter length, the drapes, accentuated shoulders and the pastels (especially, the pink!).
I also liked MaxMara’s long silky satin versions.
I can whine for hours about how unfortunate it is that I can’t afford these beautiful pieces, but I’m trying this new “be optimistic” thing, so I went on a lookout for stylish, yet affordable trench coats, instead. They aren’t anything like the ones from Burberry, but I still like them. Take a look.
Now, if I’ve convinced you enough and you’re hitting the stores already, pick one up for your man, as well. Men look so hot in them.
And one for your cute little pooch too. Because leaving him/her out would just be mean.
Awww…look at the little cutie. You’re going to get a lot of licks for this one. 😉
So, what are you waiting for? Go shop already! Go!!!
