Trench coats are the ultimate spring piece to anchor your wardrobe


When it comes to the right jacket, a trench coat will always up your outfit’s game giving you a chic touch when worn with any outfit. For spring 2020, metallic finishes and statement sleeves give a twist to the classic.

1) Raleigh Trench Coat: When the weather starts to get rainy, this style from Marissa Webb tied at the waist is perfect. (Shopbop, $362.50).

2) Belted Trench Coat: Stick with the classic in this long version with sharp lapels. (Zara, $249).

3) Metallic Leather Trench Coat: metallic is all the rage this season and you can look on-trend in a light and elegant jacket. (Donna Karan, $269).


When it comes to accessories, the most important thing is that they help pull your outfit together and are big enough to carry the basics. And the best part? This year’s most popular bags are both stylish and comfortable. Here are a couple that you’re going to want to start carrying:

1) Hana Mini Crossbody Bag: with an adjustable strap to make it even more practical, this crossbody bag from See by Chloé is cute and flirty. (Revolve, $295).

2) Large Soft Leather Clutch: This XL clutch has become the new obsession in Hollywood, which means if you're into trends, you have to give one a try. (Zara, $149).

Retro-style has been making its comeback as a newer trend. An easy way to go vintage is with an everyday piece, like dark skinny jeans. If you don’t know how to pick the right ones, try going with a slightly faded, high-rise style.

1) AG The Farrah High-Rise Skinny Jeans: This version is one of the more classic with its high-rise waist and ripped knees. (Anthropologie, $198).

2) We The Free Wild Child Skinny Jeans: High-rise and skinny fit, they adapt to your figure easily to showcase your curves. (Free People, $78).

The 90s style of Doc Martens are back, and there are plenty of lace-up boots that can give you the same vibes. These boots are perfect for those chilly, rainy days but they go great with floral dresses, too. Since they don’t have a heel, they're also incredibly comfortable. You can try out these options:

  • Haskell Patent Leather Combat Boot: This pair is made from patent leather and has hook studs and an inside zipper for easier wear. (Michael Kors, $225).
  • ICTUS Suede Combat Boots: Designed by Lucky Brand, these lace-ups are made from elegant suede. (Saks Off 5th, $99.99).
