the sun is finally coming out to play, and it’s time to swap those heavy coats for lighter options! this topshop split back duster coat from nordstrom is my favorite new addition to my closet. it feels so light, yet luxurious at the same time. i was really hesitant to pick the all black color because it’s more appropriate for winter or fall, but i’m so glad i went for it! pastels have slowly been leaking into winter and now dark neutrals are leaking into spring. there are no more rules, people!
today’s look is the first look of my “how to wear lightweight trench coats” series. i fell madly in love with trench coats this season, and i wanted to show you guys some of my favorite ways to style them. this first idea is to drape the trench around your shoulders and wear it as a cape! the light fabric provides a lot of movement, and the wide lapels and military shoulder detailing give it a nice “cool” factor. can we also talk about the split back on this thing?! so glam and so dramatic.
i used to think trenches were only for rainy days, but if you style them right, they are perfect for a night on the town. the stark black looks so sharp on my fluffy SATC skirt. i can’t wait to throw this on throughout the spring. stay tuned for details on look #2 and #3!
