The girls and I are back with our Coast to Coast Street Style Series! Today, we’re featuring trench coats from Chicwish! I’m a HUGE fan of trench coats. After spending time in London a few years ago and seeing so many women there wear them, I became hooked! Trench Coats (also called “Macs”) add a touch of sophistication to any outfit, dressy or casual. They’re great transitional pieces for going from fall to winter, and they go perfectly with a professional look! As I mentioned last week, my goal is to start doing at least one professional look every week. If you missed last week’s professional look, you can check it out HERE. Hopefully, you’ll get some inspiration from some of these posts.
When I plan what I want to wear, I try to think of the entire look from head to toe. Everything from my hair down to my shoes is part of a well thought out plan. For today’s look, I wanted to wear colors that complimented my new Mac. I love wearing knee high boots with knee length skirts, so I paired my platform boots with a fluted skirt I got from The Limited a long time ago. There’s something SO super elegant to me about wearing a turtleneck with a Mac, so that was my choice for today. If you’re cold natured, then I would suggest adding a pair of tights to stay warm. I actually thought the tights might take away from the outfit, so I decided to leave them off.
Here’s my look:

Be sure to check out Alina and Jessica’s blogs today as well to see how they styled their trench coats! This will be our last collaboration for a while but we’ll be back. I’m so excited for my friend Alina who will be a mom soon!
Do any of you wear trench coats? How do you style it?
