The Item You Should Have in Your Closet this SpringMarch 17, 2020
My husband, Seth, and I have only lived in apartments since being married, so we’re quite familiar with small closet space. As such, we’ve adopted a bit of ‘practical minimalism’ into our lives, and especially our closets. With little space comes an appreciation for a finely curated closet full of beautiful pieces that are also functional. It’s been a personal goal of mine over the past year to purchase and keep only the items that I reach for over and over again; and it’s made getting dressed in the morning all the more special.
When it comes to curating a closet that is beautiful and function, a classic trench should be at the top of your must-have list. This trench carried me through a week of Switzerland in the Spring and Paris in the fall; and I couldn’t love it more! If there is one piece you should invest in for the spring, this is it. It’s so classic and perfect for layering in all sorts of weather – I’ve worn it in a Swiss snowstorm as well as a 60 degree day walking along the Seine! And it was lovely for both.
Here are a few trench coats I’ve been loving:
This is the exact coat I have and love. Despite wearing it frequently, it looks just as new as it did when I brought it home. I love to tie the belt at the back of the coat and remove the hood to use it as a light jacket.
Classic Trench Coat by J. Crew
This is the coat you will wear for 15 years, replace, and wear for another 15 years. With the perfect khaki color and a more modern blue liner, it’s timeless and so chic.
The Kensington Trench by Burberry
If you’re ready to invest in timeless wardrobe, this piece will never go out of style. I remember trying this on for the first time last spring and it is exceptional. While this is not a part of my closet yet, I am so looking forward to adding it in the future!
