The last time I wore this Burberry trench, a couple people commented that you didn’t like it styled with Converse sneakers. Ha! I totally appreciate the honesty, even if I maintain that a trench can be dressed up or down depending on where you’re headed. I’m a big believer in cost-per-wear so investing in pieces I’ll wear on an everyday basis is more important to me than splurging on special occasion wear. That said, I get that a lot of you would be wearing your trench to work so here’s a second look that’s a little bit more dressed up. (You could absolutely sub out the jeans for dress pants like these or these to make the look office-appropriate!)
Burberry Brit Balmoral packable trench coat // Chanel Extatique lipstick // Ted Baker London peplum sweater // Michael Kors double leather strap watch // Essie Blanc nail polish // Rag & Bone stretch skinny Kensington jeans // Alice + Olivia Dina pumps (available in black here, similar navy styles here)
