How We Stye It: The Trench Coat
I still remember the first day we met. It was a cold, rainy day in May and I was shopping in Union Square. I walked by him and WHAM, it was love at first sight. I am referring to the black trench below of course.
Allison remembers seeing her Grandmother Lillian's pale blue-grey leather trench with a fur collar for the first time when she was in high school. She had just read The Fountainhead for the first time (it's been her favorite book since), and fell in love with her Grandmother's trench, thinking that it was SO Dominique Francon. Similarly, when she saw the tan trench below, it felt very Dagny Taggart, a character in Allison's second favorite book, Atlas Shrugged. That's the great thing about a fantastic trench coat - it has the potential to elevate your whole look and make you feel like the epitome of classic, polished chic.
As our trench coats have become staples in both our wardrobes, we wanted to show you a few of ways we style them. God bless our men for being patient and taking the photos.
