Coat Week: The Best Trenches

Oct 23, 2023

This week, I would like to discuss one of my favorite topics: coats.  Because coats are truly one of the best parts about cold weather, perhaps the only good part.  So let’s start with trench coats.

This olive Mango trench is absolutely fantastic.  Perfect for fall, but a step ahead of your basic tan trench.  I recommend wearing it with black, grey and ivory.  I like the relaxed feel of this, if you want something with more structure, try this Avec les Filles coat.

If you wear a lot of athleisure (especially if you have to stand outside and watch soccer in the rain), this Technical Trench from Sweaty Betty is a great option.  I like the bright accents and the fact that it feels like you could get caught in a gale without getting so much as a drop of water on you.  Need something cheaper?  Nordstrom Rack has this slate blue option and a pink one from Sweaty Betty.

The rich, chocolate color of this Estelle trench in plus-size is sublime.  I adore it.  However, one note, I would change the buttons for something darker.  The lighter buttons are a little distracting.

Looking for an affordable trench?  This Calvin Klein coat from Macy’s comes in at under-$100, and has a softer, slightly slouchy style. It’s a nice option if a trench isn’t your daily driver.

If you love the look of a wool trench, this one from Boden hits all the right marks.  I love this “dusty pink” color that looks like camel and mauve had a love child.  The coat also comes in a more traditional navy or tan.

If you already have a full length trench, may I suggest a shorter one?  Great for casual wear, the short trench looks awesome with jeans and a sweater.  Try this mustard one, also from H&M.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.

Three Outfits I’ll Wear All Spring

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
