In The Trenches



Trench Coat: Calvin Klein
Crop Top: H&M
Cigarette Pants: ASOS
Shoes: Steve Madden
Watch: Michael Kors

trench coat: (noun) - a loose, belted, double-breasted raincoat in a military style.

     The trench coat has made a huge comeback this year. The trench coat has, in my opinion, never really been out of style, but it’s just now getting the full recognition it deserves. This coat that we have gotten to know as a stylish light weight jacket to throw over any outfit and instantly look like Audrey Hepburn was originally a piece worn by Army officers. The coat was first designed for use by soldiers who would go out into the trenches in World War l. Hence the name, trench coat.

     In modern day, you can find this coat in all different kinds of colors, shapes, and lengths. Back in the day, it was one length, double breasted, and a robe style tie coat. The style of it has changed over the years, while still keeping its original character and integrity. You can find duster coat versions, knee length, hip length, and even cropped trench coats. They come in all colors of the rainbow, but the most common are khaki, black, white, and green.

     My favorite way to style a trench coat is with a more casual outfit. It can be worn with practically anything, and dress every outfit up too. Throw this coat over a pair of jeans and white tee-shirt with some flats for a casual outfit. Throw it over your work attire for a sophisticated and chic look. Or, throw this jacket on over a cocktail dress and let it compliment your night attire. The way I paired this was in a casual/work look. The cigarette pants make this outfit more work appropriate, while the crop top and heels give off more of a going-out-for-drinks vibe. When wearing this jacket I could be going to my nine to five job, or out to have cocktails with my friends. The trench coat has to be one of my favorite light jackets right now. Some of my other favorite styles for spring include duster jackets, anything with fringe, heavy prints, a shearling jacket and of course a chic 70’s inspired blazer.

     What’s your favorite style jacket for spring?
