Since before I can remember, since before I even knew which prints worked well with which silhouettes, back when my mother still largely determined my fashion choices, I knew only one thing about personal style. I knew I wanted a classic tan trenchcoat over any other item of apparel and that it was a “must-have” in my wardrobe. Perhaps it had something to do with my early obsession with Inspector Gadget, but I’d like to think I was enchanted by the simple, clean-cut lines and the sassy belted shape produced by a double-breasted trench coat. Even today, my ideal outfit would consist of a classic Burberry trenchcoat, with a pair of dark skinny jeans and a pair of bright red ballet flats.
This Fashionista has got me envious of her stylish trenchcoat, perfect for welcoming the oncoming spring weather. Knowing that the trenchcoat is such a standout piece in her look, this Fashionista keeps the rest of her look simple by pairing it with a pair of black leggings and dark brown leather riding boots.
There is no way to go wrong with the classic tan trenchcoat, but a modern update on this iconic fashion piece may be a fresh and cool option for a hip Fashionista. If you only buy one trenchcoat in your entire lifetime, it just has to be the Gryphon sand-colored trenchcoat with patches of intricate and colorful geometric embroidery, it is just too gorgeous to not have in your closet! Or if you’re looking for a trendier coat, this Michael Kors trenchcoat in bright coral fits in fabulously with this spring’s most fashionable colors.
