Why a Chic Trench Coat Belongs in Every Woman’s Closet

Trench Coats For Busy Moms On The Move!

We’re all incredibly busy. We have kids, jobs, husbands, a home…the list goes on and on. Sometimes we don’t take the time to take care of ourselves. That’s what I’m here for…I want to make your style simple so that it’s attainable. I have one big tip that can elevate ANY look…add a trench coat. That’s it. Boom. You’re done! Traveling and have on a tee and jeans? Add a trench. Running errands in your sweats? Add a trench. Wearing a simple sweater and joggers. Yup, you guessed it, add a trench. You know how I always used to say, “look like you have your act together, even if you don’t?” Well, the trench is all you need to achieve that. No joke.

Sandro Trench

First I want to talk about the Sandro trench coat I’m wearing… it is simply exquisite! It has quickly become one of my favorite new pieces. It’s flattering, feels amazing, and has gorgeous, feminine and elevated touches that really make it a standout piece. A trench coat is one of the wardrobe basics every woman needs, and one with special details is certainly a bonus. It’s been a life-saver for our weekend travels abroad. I know this one is a little pricey so I’m linking a few others below that are also great options.

Trench Coat Outfit #1

This is the perfect outfit for busy moms that are constantly running errands, picking up kids, etc. It’s simple, easy to duplicate, comfortable, and very chic. It’s also the perfect travel outfit! I wore this exact look on our flight to London. If you’ve missed where we’ve taken our weekend trips while living in Spain, you can find that post here. Under the gorgeous trench, I’m wearing a sleeveless turtleneck and the comfiest wide-leg, knit palazzo pants that match. You could easily wear the pants and sweater on its own. But adding that trench really completes the look and elevates it even more. I styled it with my Golden Goose sneakers but you could also wear flats.

Trench Coat Outfit #2

For the second look, I’m wearing a gorgeous Zadig & Voltaire dress and the same comfy sneakers. But you could easily swap out the sneaks for a pair of booties, tall boots, or heels. Add a chic necklace and some statement earrings and you have the perfect day to dinner outfit. What makes this look so put together and polished? The trench!

If you have a trench in your closet, it can be the outfit “glue” that pulls and holds your casual and dressy looks together. It’s a great fall staple. Don’t forget that I’ve linked a few additional trenches at various price points below.
