10th Commandment: January 29

Tahari Walking Coat ($138)

Trench coats are a spring staple.  They’re classic, chic and pull together any outfit.  But if you already have a trench, why not add a light coat in a modern shape to your closet?

This walking coat from Tahari has a swingy, modern shape and an effortless chic.  I also like this colorblock Tahari coat with a touch of one of spring’s hottest shades, yellow.  If you like the idea of color, this Kristen Blake coat comes in a vibrant cobalt, or black for the more subdued lady.  

Not ready for a walking coat because you still need a basic trench?  If you recently hit the lotto or are one of those women who save up for a year for a special purchase, the Burberry trench is the classic.  Coach also makes a solid trench in a lower, but still pricey range.  Looking for a lower price point?  London Fog and Victoria’s Secret are great places to start, and if you are looking for a colored trench, they have those too.

 Plus size? London Fog has you covered for inexpensive trench coats as well.

It’s still a little early for spring coats to be hitting the market, but as they start to trickle in, keep a lookout for these swingy shapes.

Look for Less

    Belle, what do you think of this trench in mint? I can't decide if it's too bright or not: https://www.nyandcompany.com/nyco/prod/Apparel/Outerwear/The-NY-Trench-Banded-Hem

    Cute! Sadly, I already have two spring trenches and a third would be ridiculous.

    I'd also suggest consignment stores – I got a gorgeous Burberry walking coat for $175 at one outside of Boston. It can be hit or miss, but if you are patient you can strike gold.

The Range: Trouser Jeans

Yesterday, we chatted about not-see-through tees. Today, I want to talk about jeans. I am so grateful wide leg denim is back in a big way. And if you’re going to the office, you need a trouser style jean to see you through the week (or just casual Friday). Here are some favorites in different […]
