polished basics

DSC_8379All the elements in this outfit are ones you’d find on those lists that dictate “the items that must be in every woman’s closet.” A trench, a crisp white shirt, and black pants. Basic but polished.

DSC_8363This outfit actually came out of a desire to wear my trench coat more often. I received it as a Christmas gift a few years ago, but I’ve worn it just a handful of times. For something that’s supposed to be a “wardrobe staple,” I hardly wear it.



My leopard pumps are a different story. I wear these all the time! I love the way they look with slim ankle pants.

How would you wear a trench coat?
