A stylish trench is a Classic wardrobe staple. It’s the layering piece every woman needs. The trench coat can elevate your look and can be worn…rain or shine.

Style Tips:

First and foremost invest in a trench that fits you to a T. The trench shape should fit your fame and flatter your figure. Pay special attention to the length. Think: not to long,not to short…. Just right!

A trench coat is best when lined. It allows the fabric to drape better over your body.

Details of your trench matter. Check button quality and buttonholes to insure stitching is secure. Also take note of even top stitching and secure belt loops. Lastly, the belt- does it slide through the belt loops with ease and is it long enough?

Buy well…. Buy Once! . The trench is a style staple that can be in your wardrobe rotation for years to come. Purchase the best quality trench that you can afford. If it’s going to hang in your closet for years to come it best be something that you love wearing with confidence and a “bit of happy.”

While many parts of the country are still covered in snow and dealing with freezing temps,here in LA we have been deluged with rain for weeks. Thank goodness I planned ahead (way ahead) and happen to have a bevy of trench coats at the ready. (Translation-I have a major coat addiction and own quite a selection(8 and counting) to choose from hanging in my closet. A girl has got to have options. Right?!

The trench coat is a closet staple. It never goes out of style and if you purchase one in a flattering fit and color you will wear it forever. Promise!

If your looking to add a trench coat to your wardrobe- THINK: Basic… COLOR: tan or black STYLE: single or double breasted and preferably belted. Fit is key. Take your time and search until you find the the perfect style for your shape and lifestyle. The basic trench is an absolute investment piece. Remember the mantra-Buy Well…. Buy Once.
