The Trench A Wardrobe Essential + WIWT - Tailoring & Tulle



Morning ladies seeing as we're in the month that is traditional known as 'April showers', although let's face it living in the UK most months are going to see the odd *all too frequent* downpour of wet stuff from the sky!  A wardrobe staple *essential* is the classic mac/trench.  Perfect for throwing over the simplest of looks & bringing an outfit together.  Not to mention for channelling that elusive Parisian chic we all aspire to.

I've had my trench for a good 12+ years & it's something that is still standing the test of time & comes out to play every year.  Like a navy blazer a classic trench is never going to date & can be used all year round, so it's worth investing a little extra if you can afford it to get a strong timeless style & cut.

Plus of course the options for styling a trench are simply endless from pairing with boyfriend jeans, a breton & trainers to tying over a midi skirt/dress, to wearing with ballet pumps & cigarette pants not to mention layering over a biker or denim jacket, I really don't think there's anything you can't wear it with.

And just to tempt you further I've put together my edit of the best trenches currently on the high street  above.  As always just click on any of the individual images for further details.

Back to today & I'm breaking out my tulle skirt & teaming with all the t's - trainers & a tailored blazer.

    1. Thanks Kareema it's one of my favourite ways of wearing a maxi skirt. That & teaming them with a biker jacket.
      Really pleased to hear you're loving the hyaluronic gel...it's brilliant isn't it.
      Have a wonderful Easter.
