TREND: Feminine in Trenches

Winter break is a time for relaxation and de-stressing yourself from your hectic semester at school. However, who’s to say that fashion has to go out the window once you step foot off campus and leave? Just because you should be comfortable and calm over break, doesn’t mean that you have to completely let yourself go. Returning to school after break is like making a clean slate. You can completely revamp your look and personality, and you have every right to. Key pieces are the foundation of your wardrobe, and they are something that will never go out of style. Having a versatile winter jacket is a safe buy for the long cold months ahead, and if your going to invest in one why not have a little fun with it? This season Burberry, Derek Lam and Michael Kors have all shown different ways to dress up you’re old trench coats. Trench coats are the perfect way to add a feminine touch to your outfit while still staying warm.

I spotted this unique looking Fashionista preparing herself for her return back to campus, while bracing herself for the cold weather that’s to come once she gets there. She kept warm in her copper colored knee length trench coat, layered over a long sleeve denim button down dress, both of which she purchased in a local thrift store. She paired her dress with floral patterned tights and studded army boots, while draping a black satchel across her torso. I particularly loved how she put together copper and black toned colors which were accentuated by the gold buttons that were placed on each piece of clothing. She also kept her jewelry to a minimum by only wearing black button earrings outlined in gold trim.

Hint: To achieve this look, you can pair any patterned tights or opaque ones with a dress of your choice. Throw a comfortable versatile trench coat over it with either knee high or ankle boots and you have mimicked it perfectly! You can find different shades of coats ranging in light to dark at a variety of retail stores. Forever21 has been seen to carry a wide range of these coats, and if your willing to spend a little extra, Burberry as well as Michael Kors have a select few on sale.
