The Trench Coat; a Classic Piece for Women’s Wardrobes.

We’ve all asked the age-old question, “Does this make my butt look big?” I suspect many of us have also asked “Does this trench coat make me look like McGruff the Crime Dog?

Ninety percent of the time the answer is “No,” but that “McGruff look” can happen.

To prevent, look for trench coats with a nice feminine silhouette, cinched waist and slightly A-line lower half.

If you’ve tried on some styles and felt more “detective” than “designer,” look for delicate details.  Beautiful buttons, fancy fabrics or a pretty ruffle can amp up the style factor.

Piperlime offers the Ruffle Trim Trench pictured left at only $79.  Love the versatile charcoal shade.

My client and I fell in LOVE with the Armani Collezioni Fan Collar Jacket we found at Nordstrom. (lower left)  The metallic thread and swirling pattern are stunning up close. She looks like a million bucks, no matter WHAT she’s wearing under it.   Trench coats are a beautiful thing.

A trench coat is a key piece in any wardrobe.   This is a classic garment  it’s okay to splurge a little.   There’s certainly no crime in, at least,  trying one on…
