Two words: TRENCH COATS. They’re a big thing in LA (and beyond) this season… but they’ve never really ever gone out of style, have they. Designers have been reimagining the trench coat for decades, and 2018 has truly outdone itself. I’ve been falling head over heels for wild textures, bright colors, and different ways to breath new life into this simple silhouette. While I completely condone a pink pleather knee length trench, starting with the basics is crucial for a lifetime’s worth of style – and for making the most of your money.  For example, you really cant go wrong with a classic tan trench like the one I’ve got on. Trenches work on every girl, every body type, and every budget. You could go on a serious investment like a classic Burberry coat, or you could go with something a bit more “current” and affordable, like this Line & Dot option.



The great thing about trenches is that they’re actually functional year round. And if it’s a more classic color/cut, they also work seamlessly from office to weekend wear. I’d typically go for a longer mid thigh or calf length trench, but for Spring I think a shorter trench is the perfect route to take. I love styling my trench with a cool pair of trousers – stripes, plaid, yes please – and either a pair of boots or a fun pair of sandals like these Who What Wear sandals I’m currently obsessing over. Even if it is 50 degrees out. You can honestly wear trenches with just about anything, so if you find one you love this season – get it. You’ll have it for forever!
