I Want What She’s Wearing: The Trench with a Twist

- By Teresa Greenfeld -

The trench coat.  A wardrobe staple indeed, nothing epitomizes understated sexy and classic tailoring quite like it.  And while everyone should have one in their closet, there are times that  call for this basic to be taken to the next level.
 From leather to fur, slouchy to structured, lady-  like to  androgynous, the trench-with-a-twist is  the mood ring of  fashion. Olivia’s trench  becomes more than simply a coat;  the ruffled  collar and billowy shape bring a femininity that    instead make it not  only an essential part of the  ensemble,  but also an  essential way of saying  who she is.  If what we  wear  defines who we are-  by broadcasting how we want  others  to see us,  then why not tell everyone who you want  to be  (on that day, at least).

 If you dream of boardrooms and the corner office, an ultra  structured trench screams “power woman”.  Perhaps you  have secret rock and roll ambitions; slip on a fur sleeve  trench and grab your hairbrush-turned-microphone. Or  maybe your bookmark bar reads like a directory of fashion  sites, and you secretly picture yourname gracing the  mastheads of at least four international Vogues; a short  and slouchy trench will hold it’s own amongst your ever-  rotating stock of “it” items.

When you take a classic and give it a twist, it becomes more style defining. And with and endless array of options, your style definition can change by the day.
