HAPPY MONDAY dear Spiral Style readers. Hope you are rested and relaxed and ready for a new week. We had lots of rain in the past few days and I was thinking about trench coats. A "trench" is a real workhorse in your coat wardrobe and a great investment.
TRENCH COATS (can you pick out the Burberry's?)
When I think Trench Coat, I think double breasted, lapels, belted, epaulets, tabs, and flaps. I also think Burberry. It was Thomas Burberry who developed a water-proof fabric, used for a military coat during the Boer War. After the war, civilians started wearing the coat, know as a trench coat...and the rest is history.
|Trench with Contrast Belt|
I have two trench coats that I'm tired of and I may try a contrast belt for a new look.
Three-Quarter Length Trench at Nordstrom
I'm not a very big person and I look overwhelmed in a double-breasted coat with lots of other things going on. This coat may be perfect for me.
What is your trench style?
