The Trench Coat

Ever since Audrey Hepburn made the trench coat a staple item back in ‘the day’, it has become a must-have within the working wardrobe. On those busy mornings before work, just throw it on for an instant pizzazz that sends you out the door in style.

It doesn’t matter what you’re wearing underneath, as it makes a great first impression with you looking classy and put together. A cute addition is a dress hanging out from the bottom! It shows a sneak-peak of the fabulous outfit worn beneath. Or wear it open for a unique yet easygoing look.

Whether it’s worn with strong leather shoes, known as brogues or tall boots, your outfit will be complete. An easy addition is a belt, and there are many that already come with one. An exciting look, actually my favorite, is a thin scarf tucked underneath the belt with matching shoes. Jeans, dress pants, heels, matching hats or purses are also some great additions to think about.

No matter what coat length you prefer, from down-to-the-floor, right up to the hips, you’ll always feel warm on those chilly fall days. Just don’t forget that umbrella so the rain doesn’t drench that trench!

The Two-Purse Trend

Carrying around a purse is like second nature. But what about carrying a second purse? The two-purse trend is really a thing now! This consists of your regular everyday purse and a small one in hand, on your shoulder or across your body. This adds a nice layering effect to your outfit and you can put together two different color purses that compliment one another. 

Now, here’s the thing; the smaller purse is barely big enough to fit a cell phone. So what gives? Well, if you’re running from the job to a night out, the smaller one can help make your night easier by just carrying around a few essentials such as lipstick, your car key, and money. And maybe that phone can fit right in your  pocket! Leave that big purse in the car and take the small one to have some fun!
