I don’t really believe in having separate wardrobes for each season. Besides the obvious (snow boots and swimsuits, for instance), I like most of my clothes to transition seamlessly from summer to winter and vice versa. This means relying on basics like fitted oxford shirts, great jeans, lightweight sweaters, and one of my new favorites: the trench coat. Here’s how I’d wear it now and how I’d wear it when it warms up in a couple months…

Classic camel and navy now, a pop of turquoise later. Finish either look with this killer cuff and a swipe of my favorite pink lipstick and you’ve got instant polish. Are you a fan of the trench coat? What’s a recent wardrobe staple you’ve invested in? Have a great weekend! xx

  1. I have been looking for the perfect trench to add to my college wardrobe. I was so disappointed this Madewell one only came in size Medium. It’s really cute!!!

  2. i have been trying to find a cute trench but they all seem too long or are the wrong color! i always try to buy clothing that i can wear for 3 seasons. and i always top everything off with pink lipstick! i am loving nars schlap recently! next on my list to try is funny face!

  3. I couldn’t agree more! The trench coat is a great transitional piece! Our style is so similar! I recently ordered those Salvatore Ferragamo flats, as well as the Tory Burch wicker basket! I was a little disappointed that everywhere was sold out of the Varina flats, but I adore the Scott Smoking flats! 🙂


  4. Love these picks! I just purchased some camel Nine West boots. They are perfect for this time between winter and spring where is can be freezing in the morning, then warmer in the afternoon.

  5. I bought my first French coat about three years ago and have been wearing it regularly ever since! It’s by far the most versatile piece in my closet.
