Time For A Classic


A great trench coat is arguably as classic as the LBD and is a practical essential to any wardrobe! The modern trench has become synonymous with Burberry, as the brand has cultivated and perfected its design. The trench coat is timeless and so versatile; you can literally wear it forever and here’s why:

Thomas Burberry invented gabardine, a durable water resistant fabric that is lightweight and packable perfect for travel and the khaki shade flowers every skin tone and pairs well with neutrals and brights alike.

The shape. Seaming gives this menswear staple a feminine fit, and the double-breasted design accommodate a larger bust while throwing straighter figures a curve. The mid length style provides rear coverage and it’s perfect to wear over dresses.

Pockets. Flat and strategically placed at the front of the hip to avoid unnecessary bulk, yet deep enough to hold all your essentials.




It’s a favorite of mine for transitional weather, since the fabric is light yet resilient! I can easily dress it up or down by styling it over jeans and a t-shirt or over a dress and heels for a streamlined look. While I’m loving this structured, double-breasted coat for winter, I also love the trench for spring. A true three season coat that is both work appropriate and weekend comfy!



For my look today, I wanted to stick with essentials and style my Burberry trench coat with my favorite Rag & Bone fedora (Now 30% Off). The menswear inspired fedora matches with the classic style of the trench, but highlights the feminine cut of the coat as well. I also chose to layer this cream Topshop cami to emphasize the simplicity of the outfit. This cami also comes in tons of other colors! Another great quality of the trench coat: it’s neutral fabric makes it easy to match with any prints, patterns, or colors.

Items like this make dressing for any occasion simpler and ups the chic factor, as there is little room for error. Style your trench coat with a striped boat neck top for a French look, layer scarves over the lapels for added warmth, or rain boots to properly fight against a little rain.
