The Essential Spring Item

Spring has finally arrived and has ushered in it's infamous trifecta of rain, mud and bugs. So to combat Spring, you're going to need Spring's essential item.
The quintessential Spring item to own is a trench coat. It's a classic transitional piece that is incredibly versatile. You can wear it as a dress, as outwear, indoors, outdoors--it's the perfect piece.

Trenches are great for layering in Spring, because they're lightweight and allow you to layer underneath, while keeping you dry and warm. I especially love them in the classic khaki, and they really lean towards the preppy side of things. So, I took that theme and ran with it!


Here are 3 Spring appropriate trench coat outfits!
The Classics

Trench--Vinted (Banana Republic) / Shirt--Thrifted / Jeans--H&M / Loafers--c/o Vinted (Steve Madden) Hat--Forever 21 / Bag--c/o Dresslink

When I see trench coats, stripes and pants are usually accompanying it. For this Parisian chic classic outfit, I paired a black and white striped top with some dark wash skinnies, and did a pattern clash with some leopard loafers. With the addition of a wide brim hat and a satchel, this casually chic outfit is perfect for a day shopping or a lunch date!


Flared Up

Trench--Vinted (Banana Republic) / Top--Target (old) / Pants--Target 
Flats--c/o Kushy Foot Scarf--Thrift


I really love the look of a dressier outfit with a trench over top, which is what I styled here. The peplum blouse adds the dressier flare to the outfit, while the ponte pants keep it sleek. With a pair of shiny flats and a coordinated scarf, this outfit is great for travelling, a downtown stroll, or a nice casual dinner.


Colorful

Trench--Vinted (Banana Republic) / Blouse--Forever 21 / Cardigan--Thrift / Skirt--Thrift (Target)
Oxfords--Thrift (Steve Madden) / Rain Boots--Amazon / Tote--Thrift / Hat--H&M

The ideal preppy Spring outfit for me is a navy midi skirt, a blouse, cardigan and some oxfords. And, on a rainy day, add a trench coat and rain boots for a cute and classic play on colors. This look is feminine, vintage inspired while also being appropriate for every day wear.
