The trench

What's more classic, stylish and less likely to be out of fashion for... like ever? I think the trench is THE piece to splurge on (together with some handbags and shoes - just joking). The Burberry is a classic sure but other fashion houses make some nice versions too. I saw this first picture below in the newest Vanity Fair and it made me realise how much I would want a nice fitting one. The origin is dubious, both  Burberry and Aquascutum claim they invented it... to me it doesn't really matter, actually who cares? Just bring me one looking as nice as any of the ones below. (btw these ladies here, seem to be Twitter geniuses, not into Twitter so don't know much, but if you are interested you can read all about it here.)

Burberry classics, I love the first 2 as they would eventually be with me for a very long time, and the shorter version is, I think, for me, a bit more comfortable. And I love how rock n' roll the leather version is.

This Miu Miu version is updated and stylish and the Marc Jacobs printed is fun, probably not for me but would add a kick in any wardrobe. 
HOPE YOU ARE ENJOYING YOUR WEEKEND; I'm having a lazy one, and kind of loving it!

  1. That is totally without a doubt a good staple coat to splurge on. I just recently purchased a similar coat at H&M for $60. So very cute, not that I needed it, but the fact that I can wear it for like ever was why I purchased it!
