wardrobe essentials IV: the trench


i think the trench deserves its own category. it is the essential of essentials, the classic of classics. it is timeless and never goes out of style. whether you're 18 or 60, the trench will always be relevant and always be chic.
 
obviously the ultimate trench is one by burberry, but if you don't have a spare $2,000 handy there are a lot of great alternatives out there. for something in the more affordable range try zara, gap (my particular favourite) or witchery.
 
due to my husband's recent sojourn in new york, i took the opportunity to get him to bring me back this amazing trench coat/cape by junya watanabe - something classic with a twist. it's a little long (or more that i'm a little short), so am getting it hemmed up a bit. but can i say, amazing!
