A classic piece with a cool twist. Leave it to Zara to make this fun dress. Spring marks the beginning of dress wearing season as well as trench coat season. This is one of my favorites times of year to shop- everything starts feeling lighter and gets me so happy to see color back in stores again. Living in a cold city, I’m desperately waiting for warmer weather.
A must have piece for spring are trench coats. It's a classic staple that goes with everything (literally everything) plus it keeps you warm and dry. There are so many different kinds of trench coats out there these days but a classic khaki colored is still my favorite! However, a darker color like army green, navy, and even black are classic colors that will match every outfit. I also like printed trench coats because they give you a happy spring vibe to your look.
A couple of things to keep in mind when purchasing a trench coat are the following:
- Make sure the fabric quality is good. You want to make sure they will actually repel water instead of soaking it in.
- Purchase one that is either slightly heavier or one with layers. This will allow you to be able to wear lighter weight clothing underneath but still work as a jacket for warmth.
- Pink out the correct length. My personal favorite are the ones on the longer side and hit right above the knee. As a petite woman, make sure you don’t wear a trench coat that passes below the knee, otherwise it will make you look quite short. The trench coats that hit at the hits are also great options. It covers just enough leaving you room to show off your cute bottoms.
- Hardware is key! Look to see how the zipper, buttons, and belt hardware looks in stores. You want to make sure you like the color and that it is not tarnishing too much.
