It’s officially the last day of February and we can almost see spring waiting to roll in.
February is usually the coldest month of the year but the fact that it is also the last full winter month is some consolation.
The last couple of weeks have come with extreme colds, rains, cloudy days, and some humidity in the air so when I woke up this morning to rays of the sun blasting through my windows, I jumped out of bed.
I have some errands to run and an outfit to slay in.
The forecast for today is blue skies with 14° at its warmest and 2° degrees at its coldest.
For my outfit of the day, I chose a Trench coat I bought at Galleries Lafayette stores here in Bordeaux. They’re from the brand Jodhpur.
I love trench coats, and I strongly recommend them as one of 10 wardrobe essentials for every woman because they’re one of the most versatile pieces of clothing and they are also trans-seasonal.
Styling this coat is easy because it is in a neutral color, it goes with pretty much any other color.
In the past, I have styled this trench with slim pants and a sweater top with heels. I have also worn it unbuttoned over a short sweater dress and ankle boots.
Today i decided to go for a classic Parisian style.
Tightly belted above the waist for an empire Silhouette effect, I wore the trench coat over a black long-sleeved top for some warmth and black biker shorts.
I accessorized with my favorite bag at the moment: the Grand Bambino bag from Jacquemus in a dark brown color.
Sticking to neutral colors, I wore Knee-high boots from Steve Madden in brown color.
A classic red lipstick accompanied a fringe hairstyle to finish the look.
There are so many other ways to style trench coats but my favorite is wearing them buttoned up from the waist up to the neck, and unbuttoned from the waist down for full leg display. Wearing it this way also gives an impression of elongated legs.
I hope you love this style.
Does anyone else think a trench coat is a versatile piece of clothing?
