Spring Essential: The Trench Dress

trench dress, spring 2019 dress ideas, spring outfit ideas

When building a strong foundation for your wardrobe, it’s important to pick items that will create outfit options. I firmly believe that is KEY. Recently I came across this trench dress by Vero Moda and right away I thought this would be a perfect spring wardrobe essential. Not only is the price right…I already could see myself wearing it three different ways! This dress is considered transitional dressing, meaning I can wear it all year long. Once the cooler weather arrives, layer with a turtleneck, long sleeve fitted shirt or a crisp button down. Outfit options are endless.

reason #1

I think every woman should have at least one workhorse dress in their wardrobe. What do I mean by workhorse? Well, it’s your go to piece in your closet you can depend on. It will take you to any destination. For example, you can wear this trench dress with a nude heel, and beautiful statement earrings. Perfect outfit for a bridal or baby shower! But then easily pair with a tailored blazer, black pumps and head to the office.

7 days of style tip

Replace the fabric belt with an actual belt. Depending on the shoe you go with, you could go with neutrals such as black, tan, or add animal prints such as leopard or snakeskin. To give you an idea, click on my suggestions below:

Zimmermann belt from Shopbop

Black woven belt from Zara

Leopard print belt from Topshop

Reason #2

Pair the dress with an all monochromatic look underneath. For example, you go all black, navy, or white. I especially think all black or white would look so chic in the spring.

reason #3

Looking to wear it casually? Pair it with a skinny or straight denim, add a t-shirt or a fitted tank. Complete the look with long gold or silver necklaces, stylish sneakers or flat sandals.

7 days of style tip

Step outside your style box and replace jeans with the denim bike short. I love when you purchase an item that you can dress up or wear casually.
