Put A Trench On It!

Put A Trench On It!

You’ll rarely catch me in sneakers unless I’m working out, but lately my on the run lifestyle has called for kicks more often than not! But a casual look doesn’t have to be boring, it can easily be ‘classed up’ with just a few added details. My favorite way to turn a casual outfit chic is to throw on a trench coat! A light trench is also the perfect transitional piece as we say goodbye to winter and welcome spring. Layering over short sleeves or sleeveless tops is essential for those of us that will continue to wake up to cold temps, and then feel like we’re in the dead of summer by noon {ugh, not fun!}.

I also added an unexpected accessory detail by tying a scarf as a neck tie. As a wardrobe stylist, I always emphasize to my clients that the little details are EVERYTHING when it comes to piecing together a winning outfit!!

Oh, and if you didn’t catch my secret trick to looking taller while casual…I’m wearing hidden wedge heel sneakers ;-). Yeah, I’m a shorty {5’3 to be exact} so I feel super short and stumpy in flat sneakers! AtlantaPhotographer-14-(ZF-7243-82406-1-014)AtlantaPhotographer-15-(ZF-7243-82406-1-015)IMG_20170321_194535Here are a few gorgeous spring looks by some of my favorite bloggers (@miamiamine, @wendyslookbook, @kyrzayda_) topped off with a trench coat. A khaki, rich colored or pastel trench is so, so perfect for this season!

    Great post! It really hit home because I can struggle with details for an outfit. Even though I blog fashion I have a hard time with jewelry and scarves. But I did already whip out my spring trench! Look fabulous!!
