Classic effortless style, patterned after the French women who blazed the trail and demonstrate that simple is sophisticated, more often than not entails a classic trench coat. And as I mentioned in this podcast episode when discussing the style tips of the French woman, as much as I want to purchase a Burberry trench, my budget has told me to wait. However, there are many quality mid-range designs that embody that classic silhouette and structure, and one worth checking out is London Fog.
Currently I have had in my closet for over five years and worn regularly J.Crew’s Icon trench (currently 30% off with promo code BIGSALE) which is mid-thigh length – perfect to wear over jeans but not ideally worn over a dress or a skirt as the coat’s length is far shorter. And so, I have been on the lookout for a trench that hit at or preferably just barely below the knee. Why? I need a versatile trench that can be worn with jeans but also with any of my pencil skirt ensembles or dresses. And as luck would have it, I came across London Fog’s Gillian long-trench in stone or black.
I was over the moon, and even more so when I paid less than $140. If you too are in the market for a classic trench, stop by Macy’s (save 30% with FRIEND promo code) or the London Fog website and discover a label that offers classic quality styles at affordable prices.
As it is a classic item for a capsule wardrobe, this coat can be found in TSLL’s Capsule Wardrobe Boutique in All-Season. Just in case you aren’t ready to buy right now, rest-assured, you will know where to find it when you are.
