It has to be the random flashes of warmer weather that have me already thinking about spring, and how I will transition my style into the new season. One closet staple that is always synonymous with the unpredictable, yet usually warmer spring weather, is the trench coat.
How was your weekend, my fellow style mavens? Mine was spent with friends, some fall cleaning that consisted of me purging a substantial chunk of my current wardrobe, and some contemplation on the coming season and what items would make a great addition to my closet. When it came to deciding which pieces would stay and which would go, I chose to donate items that I hadn’t wore for at least two years, unless they were quality pieces that could stand the test of time and outlive any fashion trend. At first, the task made me feel a little anxious, but now I feel relief from de-cluttering my closet space, and from actually having room to rebuild my wardrobe with more of those quality pieces that I covet.
However, one piece that is always timeless is the trench coat. I usually stock my closet with at least one new one every season, because the item is such a classic that you simply can never have too many.
What other items am I looking forward to building my fall wardrobe around? Well, lace-up flats are a great and comfortable piece of footwear to have, and so is a great fitting pair of black jeans and a classic bag. And while I may still be on the hunt for that perfect classic bag, I am definitely on the right track when it comes to the others.
