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 and 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.

This Chelsea Slim Fit Heritage Trench Coat by Burberry is like the Aston Martin of trench coats. If you wear trench coats a lot and you want to invest in the highest quality trench coat possible, this is it! It’s flattering, feels amazing, and will keep you warm and dry in the rain! That may seem like a given, but actually, MANY trench coats are not waterproof or even water resistant. Crazy, I know. I am SO glad I tried this coat, but I returned it because I decided to invest in the Balmain blazer instead. (You can read about that blazer here.) Plus, I love my old Veronica Beard trench which I am so sad to say is no longer available. I am constantly on the lookout for standout trenches, though. Also, you can score a Burberry trench on sale at RueLaLa.com. Sizing is true.
Look #1 | Trench Coat Outfit For Moms On The Go
This is the perfect outfit for busy moms that are constantly running errands, picking up kids, etc. It’s simple, easy to duplicate, and comfortable.
I’m wearing a classic momiform…dark wash jeans and a cute white top. I’m also sporting the white Veja V-10 sneakers. (Remember sneakers are cool now? Be sure to take FULL advantage!!) You can find more outfit ideas for your white sneakers here. These Veja sneakers took a few weeks to break in, but I love them! And, they are a great alternative to the very popular (and pricey) Golden Goose sneakers.
I’m carrying the chic Chanel boy bag. But a classic tote would work here too!
No doubt you are getting the FULL trench effect when you see this outfit that is otherwise so basic and simple. That third layer really pulls the look together and make you look way more stylish! Quick note: this look is also great for travel!

Look #2 | Trench Coat For Dinner
For the second look, I’m wearing the same jeans and top but changed out the shoes and bag for a more elevated look. You could wear this to dinner or if you’re running errands, but you need to be more polished.
You may remember these cute white booties by Vince Camuto from this post. I styled them with both a blazer and faux fur jacket. I also shared three ways to wear white booties in this video if you need more styling ideas for these.
