I used to think trench coats weren’t for me. That was before I found a great vintage Burberry one in a vintage shop in Barcelona three years ago. The silhouette of my favorite trench is quite long with rounded shoulders, and I love to cinch the waist with a nice leather belt. Not long after my first purchase, I scooped up a double breasted budget version. This one is much more classic, but I feel it suits me less.

I think that’s the basic thing: find the take on this classic that suits you, and it will be one of your go to pieces, that you can wear season after season.

My advice for finding the perfect trench:

1. Go for quality, it shows and it will last you a long time. This is definitely a piece that doesn’t go out of style, so no harm in investing.

2. Think about the general “rules” that apply to your figure: The double breasted trench makes me look a lot heavier than the first one, with hidden buttons. By cinching the waist and not butonning it up, I create a deep V that suits my figure much more.

3. If you’re not sure beige suits you, choose another color like the heavenly soft blue pictured above, or a dark blue if you want something more neutral.

And now, the inspiration!

    Leuke inspiratie foto’s.
    Ik was al totaal vergeten dat ik een trenchcoat in de kast heb hangen, tijd dat ik hem eruit haal.

    Kisses Ellen
