Incorporating a Wardrobe Staple: The Trench

Yesterday, I channeled my inner Emma Watson for Burberry (ha.) and took this coat out of the closet for the first time since autumn. This trench coat from Zara has definitely been my favourite purchase of the last year. While my credit card hurt a little when I purchased it, I have gotten more use out of this coat than I ever thought I would.

I love trench coats for their versatility. This coat has been a staple in my work wardrobe (a classy look for any office!) as well as in my day to day running of errands.

On this rainy spring day, I wore the coat over a grey and white tee, a leather pleated skirt, tights, and my favourite black boots. To give the outfit a pop, I added my new favourite, bright royal blue, Marc Jacobs inspired, bracelet to give the outfit some colour that the rest of the outfit was lacking.

While I have opted for a slightly dressier outfit today, I think trenches look really cute paired with some skinny jeans, floral Keds and a plain t-shirt.
