One of my latest obsessions: Trench Coats
Okay, now I’ve always thought that I was not the type of girl who could pull one off. I always see these young professionals rushing around downtown DC with their trench coats on. (Or old men…) The classic coats felt “out of my league” a bit, I guess. Rainy weather? I’d just throw on a rain jacket!
But then I started coveting one. I ended up getting one on Black Friday (yes, as in months ago) and I still was kind of at a lost of how to wear it. I will readily admit that I was sort of intimidated by the beige coat hanging in my closet.
And then I pulled it out one day.
And never looked back.
I wear it all the time. The trench is perfect for the mild winter and frequent rain we’re experiencing in DC. Frankly, I even wear the coat when there isn’t a cloud in the sky!
In this picture, I’m wearing the trench over this outfit.
My trench is from Banana Republic!
I’m also dying over these J. Crew Matinee Trench Coats! I definitely want to get one for the spring, but I can’t decide on a color…. Modern Red or Navy…. Hmmm…
Anyone else have a trench? How do you wear it? And which color do you like best for the Matinee trench?
