TREND: The Timeless Trench

Last week, we got a sneak peak into the spring weather and accompanying fashion that is in store for us this upcoming season. It’s almost that time of year to shed the layers of bulky knits and heavy coats, and embrace the change of weather. Although we won’t be facing sub-zero temperatures, every Fashionista still needs a jacket to keep her warm on those chilly days of spring. The perfect solution for this in-between weather is the timeless trench coat. First introduced in the 20th century by the legendary fashion house, Burberry, the trench is now an essential in every Fashionista/o’s wardrobe.

Recently, the trench has undergone a modern makeover including trenches with embellishment, bright colors, and bold patterns, but keeping the classic silhouette right above the knee. I noticed this Fashionista right away showing off her trench in the classic color of cream with lace embellished cuffed sleeves adding a modern twist paired over a floral print dress. Throwing a trench coat over any outfit can add instant sophistication to your appearance, and what Fashionista/o doesn’t want to appear perfectly polished? To complete this sophisticated look, pair your trench with a neutral pair of ballet flats and jeans or over a little black dress. A cropped trench coat is the perfect alternative if you are seeking a more laid-back look. Either way you decide to wear it or pair with, the trench coat is a trend that is here to stay.

Hint: Belting a trench coat is a must, so have fun with this and secure it with a patterned belt or tie a loose-fitting belt in a knot.
