Fashion Over Reason: The Classics comeback

The Classics comeback

My apologies for the poor quality, but you catch my drift. I was inspired by The Sartorialist's recent photographs he calls "The Art of the Trench" because a trench coat is always elegant and of course, practical. And i was also perhaps fueled a little bit by my current obsession of all things preppy. Regardless of how simple this outfit is, and the fact that my coat is not Burberry, it is composed of timeless pieces (a crisp white shirt, denim, trench coat, fur, tall boots!) that simply never go out of style. Makes me feel like my boyfriend should be a polo player or something. Bring back the classics!






Shirt - Valentino
Jeans - J Brand
Boots - Michael Kors
Trench - Zara
Fur scarf - Vintage (found in my parents' basement!)

i love this coat and this look on you.
you look gorgeous, lady! :)
and im definitely feeling the preppier look lately too. though a less polished version. i need a break from grunge.

you're right about classics! I adore this look on you, especially how it is styled and presented in the 2nd to last photograph... love the expression too. I have a similar fur collar, and I will def. be trying it with my trench.

once in a while I see someone's outfit that I might not *necessarily* wear myself, but it just seems so perfect on her: this is an example. very chic, helene!
