I'm here with another French-inspired shopping spree.We'll be talking about another French closet staple: a trench coat. No French wardrobe is complete without a classic beige or black well-cut trench. This comes as no surprise: after all, the French style is all about the simplicity, quality and easy glamour, and no other garment epitomizes effortless glamour as a trench! It is one of the most versatile pieces there is: you can wear with a classic jean and a soft blouse, or with a feminine tuxedo jacket and black pants à la Yves Saint Laurent; even with your cocktail dress on a chilly summer night. Fastening its belt nonchalantly on your waist will add a touch of effortless chic to any outfit. Take time choosing your perfect trench and don't hurry up: a French-style trench always fits like a glove. It should look like you've had it forever an it has almost become your second skin.
Of course, a classic Burberry is still the first choice, but let's be honest: how many of us can spend $1400+ on a trench right now? I know I certaintly can't. Luckily, there are many classy, beautiful and good quality choices out there, and until I can max my credit card out chez Burberry, I'll be more than happy with a more affordable option. And I'm seriously tempted by n°3 by Lacoste. Isn't it just perfection? Which one is your favorite? And don't forget that you can find many many more options in my shopping section. Good luck finding you perfect one!
