OUTFIT: TRENCH COATS

H&M trench coat; H&M top; JBrand jeggings; Zara booties

We all know trench coats are a classic piece, but we're seeing it pop up more than ever. Is this because of the rise of the #GIRLBOSS? Or could it be because "normcore"? Whatever the case, I'm loving it. 


When I bought my trench coat (or lab coat, as I refer to it) last year, little did I know that I'd be wearing it on the daily. Even though it's a classic, I can't lie I was a bit intimidated wearing and styling it. At first I felt a bit witchy but now I sass it up with pastels and booties that aren't black.


My style is pretty feminine and a black trench coat is almost the opposite. It's professional, it's chic, and relaxed. So I balance my outfits by wearing lighter colours, shorter tops (if you're extra sassy, style it with a crop top), and accessorizing. I have an obsession with rings if you can't tell.


If black isn't your thing, I've been lusting over Artizia's Babaton Lawson Trench Coat in Oxford Tan. It has a relaxed fit (so that's a win) and it's a good length for all my petite girls out there. If you're a shortie like me, try and look for trenches in the petite section. The longer the trench the shorter you'll look. As a rule of thumb for myself, I try to find coats that don't go past my knee. 


K blog post done, time to play in the snow!
