Since moving to Pittsburgh, I’ve been incredibly thankful for my trench coat. It’s appropriate for every occasion - from work to saturday errands - and not to mention perfect for those chilly drizzly mornings when a real coat would just be too much but you def need SOMETHING to cut the wet.
Mine is a classic version from London Fog. I got it years ago from Burlington Coat Factory curtsey of my mom and her insisting that “every woman needs a classic trench coat” (the older I get the more I realize how right my mom always is).
Since I’ve determined just how integral this coat is in my wardrobe, I’ve been lusting over the Burberry versions (go big or go home right?). Their spring collection is just to die for (neon! leather sleeves! studs! EXPENSIVE!).
Since it will be years and years until I can afford my own Burberry treasure, I’ve been looking into ways to revamp my classic trench. Yesterday, I was inspired by this Japanese Vogue cover:
Adding a thick statement belt turned out to be the easiest way possible to update my trench. This is how it turned out:
I paired it with leopard and red accents - some big earrings and a bun added to the lady-with-an-attitude vibe.
What do you guys think? Does it work well or is it a lame attempt at ‘runway to real life’?
Happy Wednesday everyone! We’re more than halfway through now. :)
