There is a slight chill in the air, a small dash of wind and a scatter of chunky grey clouds in the sky. Is it or is it not going to rain today? With doubt in my mind about the forecast ahead I think this is the perfect kind of weather to be rocking out a rain/trench coat. YUS!
Trench coats are great, I love them. They are the evolved version of what used to be a shapeless and PVC only rain coat. Not only are they functional (protecting you from rain and wind) but dependant on the design, cut and material and what you wear with your trench, you can go from sophistication to casual street chic in seconds.
Let’s take the Marc Jacobs one for instance (in the bottom picture) and wear it with a pair of nude heels, a matching tone dress with your hair in a top knot then you’ll surely come off as sophisticated chic. Now, if you had paired the Marc Jacobs with skinnys, a long singlet with a baggy white T-shirt over the top and a pair of white converse I would say you’d definitely be looking street chic. I have a trench at home so tomorrow I might see if I could get a few pictures taken styling a few different looks with the same trench – so stay tuned!
