LADYLIKE: THE TRENCH COAT

I was telling you about my love for Paris in my previous post. Inspired by Paris Fashion Week and the eternal french style, I thought I should dress a little bit more Parisian this time.

I must say this ladylike look is not only elegant, but also really classy, and I blame it on the trench coat mostly. In fact, this piece of garment was used by Army officers in World War I. Apparently, fashion was rather inspired by it, since it later on became an integral part of stylish women’s wardrobes. However, I’m particularly happy with this ZARA trench since it has a really nice cut and is well structured. Unfortunately I can’t button it up at this point, because of the growing baby bump, but trust me – it looks great. It is also windproof which makes it quite appropriate for not so good weather conditions.

To complete the look, I’ve opted for a fine pencil skirt in dark wash, classy pointed pumps in black,  and a smart loose top in white. The latter has a nice small neck detail, matching the studded earrings. I’ve also picked a bag in the coat’s shade, since I want the trench to pop up and be statement piece itself.

Since trench coats were initially used by Army officers during the war, what are your thoughts on men wearing them? I myself fancy men only in short trench coats, not really keen on the longer cut.
