Fashionable Friday: Trench Coats

Burberry Prorsum
We’re having some awesomely warm weather this weekend here in N.C. We’ve hung our thick, wool coats up for a couple of days. The only problem is that it’s still cold in the mornings, so there’s that issue of what to wear, what to wear, what to wear! The classic, always fabulous trench has been our go-to piece.
Trench coats can conjure spy movies and detective shows, but every trench doesn’t have to look like Dick Tracy. The flounce in this trench is undeniably feminine — but still perfect for crime solving.
Tan is great, but colors can be wonderful. This lovely pink is perfect for spring!
A tight knot around the waist is our favorite way to cinch our trench. 
The trench gets trendy with this chic cape variation.

The trench doesn’t have to be so buttoned up…
If a room needs a touch of black, maybe a trench does too?

Oh my goodness. It’s a tiny trench! Isn’t everything cuter when it’s littler?

Although they can be subdued and blend right in, a trench can always be an eye-catching accessory. I have one in orange and we both have a yellow (There’s Dick Tracy again…) for standing out in a crowd. Every year I say that a Burberry trench, that classic wardrobe staple, is going to be atop my Christmas list. This year, I’m thinking it’s a must! 
We hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend!

  9. Hi girls…I love me a trench coat. A true classic in every way, they can be so smart and flattering and can take us through almost all kinds of weather. I have had one for years that has a removeable inner lining that is faux fur and super warm, so I can wear it in cold weather or just rainy warmer weather. Great post!

  10. bravo to trench coats. particularly love the one in the third snap “cinched at the waist”……to die for.

  15. I love trench coats since I was a teen ager and watched Breakfast in Tiffanies for the first time…isn´t that a proof of timelessness?
