“Winter is coming!” I shout in an ominous Game of Thrones type voice. Okay, okay let me stop being crazy, but seriously…winter is coming. Coach’s Suede Full Length Trench Coat in Coffee is the perfect everyday trench for the winter months. I think it would look great with a white turtleneck sweater or some boots or both. You could be a modern day Khaleesi. The only problem is that is costs $1498.00 A girl can dream though…
For the Trench Coat- You can take a trench coat from anywhere. I just happened to buy mine off of Ebay. You can either cut the sleeves off or use a seam ripper like I did. Seam rippers are cheap.

You know how much I love to talk about trends. Trust me, anything new that comes out I’m all over it like an umbrella.

Plus, there can be too much of a good thing. Trend + trend + trend+ trend = a wtf outfit. Outfits are like a culinary dish. Trends are the spices on top of your basic potatoes, and a girl cannot subsist off of pepper alone.
So this post is just to celebrate those classic, perfect pieces which, when you think about it, really are the foundations for effortless style.
Trench coats are always stylish and in season. They flatter every body type and provide a sexy sophistication to any casual outfit. Trenches are a good investment for any diva on a budget because they can be worn in both the spring seasons and the fall seasons. This fall expect to see more military and utilitarian style trenches, they’ll provide a rough edge to the otherwise classic trend.
Tons of celebrities have been spotted with Trench coats within in the past few months especially Victoria Beckham who has helped make the trench coat an iconic peace in the past year or so.
