As I’ve been preparing for my upcoming trip to New York for Fashion Week (eek!), I’ve been shopping for all of the essentials I need to spend a week in the cold. Remember, I’m the girl who layers three sweaters if it’s under 60 degrees. I have so many cute things I want to bring, but I only have two suitcases and so many shoes! One of the must haves on my list is a classic trench coat. I know it’s not the warmest choice, but it’s just so timeless and chic. I feel just like Audrey Hepburn standing in front of Tiffany’s when I wear mine!
I styled this Burberry trench for California weather with a striped skirt and lightweight sweater, but it can easily be worn with everything from jeans to slacks. The color is a light tan, which looks great with pretty much everything. The length is also not too long and not too short. Remember to consider your height when buying a trench or any longer coat. You don’t want a style that is too long because you don’t want it to overwhelm your frame.
