Just before I went away I was asked to take part in a style challenge with La Redoute. Making French style accessible, La Redoute’s classic pieces make a great addition to any wardrobe. I was featured along with two other fabulous bloggers on the La Redoute Blog, click on the link to read it.
When it comes to outerwear there are very few garments more classic than the trench coat. It is one of those pieces that oozes style and sophistication.
Look One: Feminine Chic
Full skirts are huge again this season. The bold botanical print teamed with the classic trench and tan accessories give this feminine look a chic twist. The crisp white top keeps the look fresh.
Look Two: Classic Navy
There is nothing more classic than teaming your trench with navy. Keep the silhouette up to date with a peg leg trouser or a jumpsuit just like I’ve teamed it with here.
Look Three: Accessorise
Lift a classic black outfit with accessories. I’ve chosen this huge layered necklace to make a statement which acts as a modern contrast against the trench.
Look Four: Practical Work Outfit
For a busy day at the office, team a statement dress with practical ballet pumps and roomy bag to fit all your essentials in. The neon in the print of the dress works great against the neutral of the trench and really lifts the outfit.
Look Five: Off Duty
My favourite look of the five is this off duty, casual look. Easy to wear and oh so comfortable, just grab your favourite jeans and striped t-shirt. I’ve teamed mine with classic baseball pumps and vintage satchel bag.
