Fashion Trend: Le Trench Coat

Monday, August 15, 2011


As fall is approching at the speed of lightning, I'm on a hunt for the perfect  Le Trench Coat. Not being totally sure what I'm looking for I quicky realized that the fabulous writer and illustrator Badaude recently shared her ins & outs of trench-wearing.

Here are a few of her essential tips:
- always tie the belt, never buckle or just simply wear it loose
- it's important to turn up the collar
- also make sure to undo everything
- and always roll up the sleeves!

She also points out that messy buns and Bensimon's are super stylish and will make you feel like a true Parisian. I can't wait to try those tricks! Darlings, will you be wearing trench this fall? What do you think about Badaude's tips? xo

oo la la! I like the rolled up sleeves idea. I'd feel so Nancy Drew if I had a trench. Note to self: Get a trench.
