Not So Classic

Fashion Over Reason makeup check

There are certain items that are considered to be timeless classics in the fashion world. Blue jeans, crisp white shirts, black pumps, the LBD and, yes, the trench coat. While the latter khaki-hued piece of outerwear is indeed a great staple to have in your closet -- every woman should own one, given that it's a flattering silhouette on you -- that's not to say you can't also have fun with it.

I was super excited about this leather-sleeved iteration. I love little seasonal updates to keep things fresh. Additions like this provide your style with instant modernization without straying far from its core, tried and true sartorial identity. And golden hour on a crisp-but-not-frigid NYC evening awarded this type of gear the perfect setting.

A fun handkerchief tied around thy neck and I was all set.
