Today is all about my absolute staple item for Autumn & Winter. A trench coat is such a timeless piece in anyone’s wardrobe. I thought I would share how I like to style mine as I love it. I know I speak on behalf of many people when I say that a trench can make an outfit complete. They always look so smart and classy and can make any outfit look a bit more dressy.
I recently bought a new trench coat as Missguided recently had a 50% everything sale. I definitely think I should’ve got the size below in the trench coat, but oh well! At least I won’t need to worry about it being too tight when I wear a jumper underneath.
My winter wardrobe is my favourite. It’s lots of simple pieces that look amazing when put all together. I love going for the simple, yet statement, outfits in winter. A lot of the time I will wear my trench coat with a jumper, black jeans, and boots because it ties the look together. Where I’m quite short I never wear my trench with flat shoes as it makes me look so stumpy!
As you can see in the images, I also love pairing a trench coat with an all black ensemble. My black roller neck dress, black tights, and some simple gold accessories make the perfect outfit to wear with a statement coat. Depending on the day I’m going to have will depend on what bag I will wear too. I chose my Kurt Geiger Darla bag as it gave the outfit a bit of character. It looks so smart and sophisticated making it perfect for work or any meetings you may have. If I’m in the mood for colour then I’ll wear khaki or nudes so I can channel my inner Kim K.
This style of coat, as I said, can dress up any outfit. I have a t-shirt with the choker detail on it which I love pairing with a simple pair of jeans and boots. By putting this coat on with this outfit it instantly takes it from casual to classy. I love the fact it makes it look like I’ve put in a lot more effort with my outfit than I actually have!
It’s the perfect accessory for this time of year and an absolute necessity in my wardrobe! It’s incredibly warm, I was shocked at how heavy it was when I took it out of the bag when it arrived. I’m completely obsessed with this coat, I could go on about it for days! Let me know what your absolute must have for Autumn/Winter in the comments!
