Our attack on the rain continues as we explore two different styles of the trench coat- the color pop and the basic black. (If you missed it, check out Kimberly's post from earlier this week showing her favorite red trench.
A colorful trench is always fun, especially if you tend to wear a lot of neutrals or blacks. If your wardrobe has more colors and prints, then we recommend going for a classic black or beige trench. That way it won't compete with what you are wearing underneath.
Classic black also allows you to incorporate color through your accessories. Add a bright hat, print bag or let your favorite sweater peak out from underneath. For a more streamlined look, you can never go wrong with an all black ensemble (that may be the East Coast in me talking).
Pro tip: on days when you don't need to button your coat, tie the belt in a bow behind your back to give the coat a more fitted look.
