There are only a few items of clothing that truly qualify as ‘timeless,’ meaning you could wear them today and 30+ years ago and not look out of place. Luckily, trench coats have completely stood the test, and for good reason; they are practical for transitional season such as spring and fall. You can make an excellent outfit with a nice trench coat and a statement pair of shoes, and particularly this season, trenches are trending hard. I wore another trench coat from my wardrobe in my previous blog post, as they work perfectly with spring’s unpredictable weather. Sun or rain, windy or still, you’ve at least got your bases covered!
With a trench, the other most noticeable item will definitely be your shoes, so make sure you choose wisely! This pair I am wearing from Zaful is a take on the ultra-trendy, fold down flat that has taken over your ordinary black flat. With its gold buckle and fold down feature, it is an affordable option for some of the oh-so covetable designer shoes, like these Gucci flats. The best part about this style is that you have the option of wearing the backs both up and down, so aside from a little extra wear, they will outlast the trend and stay functional past this year. I love when regular staples like flats get a make-over, creating an outfit that has just a tad more to say!
