Must Have: Plaid Trench

Must Have: Plaid Trench

Today is my first day in Paris and the weather is chilly but beautiful. Which is perfect to highlight today’s "Must Have": The Plaid Trench. Now coats tend to be the last minute addition that people throw on and not as much thought is put towards the style. This is a huge mistake! Every part of an outfit needs to tie into the rest and not a single piece is more important that another - these are all equal parts of a whole. Your coat is the finishing touch to your outfit and a crucial piece of a stylish look.


The coat that I’m wearing today is very special me. I can’t go into too much detail since I try to keep my work private, but this coat is made from the first fabric I ever worked on! Way back in 2013, I poured my blood, sweat and tears into making this first fabric a successful program and on Friday I came into possession of the actual garment - honestly this is as amazing as seeing my fabric walk down the runway! A plaid coat is a statement in itself but what stands out about this one is the colours; the cobalt blue is spectacular and really pops against the grey and reddish brown. I also love the fact that it is a boxier cut - it looks great with a pair of skinnies and a fitted top. In case you were wondering - this coat is also reversible and I can wear it with plain navy on the outside as well! While I wasn't able to find options that are also reversible, I've listed a few below that I really think will make a statement for you!
