The Trench: A Spring Staple (See Jane Wear)

Burberry trench (look for less here), Zara top, Gap pants, J Crew heels, Celine bag
A classic trench coat is one of those items that I grab for year after year.  I've had this particular version for four years now and I think the cost per wear must be mere pennies by now.  It's appropriate for the most conservative of offices and can be dressed down for the most casual wardrobes, too.  I relied on this coat for business travel when I worked in finance; now that I work at a start-up where we can be as dressed down as we please, I still pull it just as often during springtime.  They now come in a plethora of colors and styles (and price ranges, too), but you can't go wrong with a standard khaki or black trench.

Burberry trench, H&M jacket, DL1961 jeans, Joie flats, Chloe bag (old, but similar size/shape)

  6. Of course, a classic trench is always great. But my style inspiration here is the leopard heels with the yellow pants. Had no idea the two work so well together.

  15. I like that you went for a black trench instead of the usual beige. Still classic but it makes you a little different!

  16. That first picture - yellow jeans with leopard shoes - LOVE! Funny how trench coats are so simple and basic, but can be so chic. I definitely need a new good trench.
