We didn’t intend this edition of Real Life Looks of the Week to have a theme, as such, but these three looks jumped out at us, and they all just so happen to feature the classic trench coat in all it’s glory, so a theme was born!
The classic trench coat is a spring wardrobe staple for many of us, and with good reason: it adds instant chic to just about any outfit, and although these days trench coats come in a huge range of colours and styles, this is one occasion when we’re going to claim beige is best: if you don’t believe us just take a look at our three favourite looks of the week, in no particular order…
Real Life Look # 1 | Classic trench coat with an all-white ensemble
We’re bug fans of head-to-toe white, which brings tons of drama to even the simplest of outfits. This neutral look is simple, but very stylish, with the animal-print slip-ons providing a little bit of added interest.
Real Life Look # 2 | Classic trench coat with stripes
What is it about stripes that make them such a natural match for the good ol’ trench? Well, they’re both classic pieces, which compliment each other nicely. Both work well with jeans, of course, and the slouchy boyfriend style of these ones keeps the look fresh and contemporary. Love the hat!
Real Life Look # 3 | Classic trench coat with an all-black outfit
Firstly and most importantly: LOVE the lurch-hound! We also love the way the basic black outfit contrasts with the beige coat: the minimal look is always in style, just like the classic trench coat itself!
