Style Staple: An Effortless Trench Coat

As most of you are experiencing the beginning of fall, and we Texans wait for the cooler weather with baited breath, one of the most classic wardrobe staples comes to mind: the trench. A classic trench is essential for every woman, in every climate. It’s something that you can wear for most of the year and like most style staples, it can easily be dressed up or down. It’s the perfect blank canvas for one to express his or her individual style.

{I love the juxtaposition of this look—an easy tee and effortless trench paired with skinny, black leather pants and heels. The look is chic from head to toe.}

{Personally, I am obsessed with Burberry’s Long Cotton Gabardine Leather Trim Trench. It looks so polished and has just enough edge to feel special.}

I love trench coats! They are such a wardrobe staple. I have a Burberry trench coat that is very light weight and works well as a rain jacket. I wear it as often as I can! :)

Love the trench! What a classic look. I still wear a lavender trench that I bought 10 years ago. As a fellow Texan, it hardly ever gets to come out of the closet!

See I always wore mine closed (but I tied the belt around the waist not use the buckle) but now I am seeing more open ones and I love that look. Lots of great looks! Still need a Burberry one though :)

Loved these! I have never really thought that I can pull off a trench but I'm inspired to try again - super cute and functional for fall :)

You just can't go wrong with a great trench. Loving the one with the bow by the way! Good picks!
