Hello all you hard working women out there!

Now that Spring is finally on it's way, I wanted to do a post on a Spring wardrobe essential, trench coats! As I'm sure many of you know the old saying, "April showers bring May flowers", we know that it rains a lot in the beginning of Spring and the temperature begins to fluctuate. That being said, we begin to get rid of our heavy winter coats and are in need of something that will keep us warm on those chilly mornings and rainy days, but not too warm since the temperature is no longer that cold. Trench coats are perfect for the Spring season because many of them are waterproof and provide the perfect amount of warmth, since they're not heavy. I would suggest, if you do not currently own one, to purchase a neutral color because it will of course go with everything in your wardrobe. This Express trench coat was my very first and I chose it in this beautiful beige color because it's a neutral and I fell in love with the frills on the bottom. Notice, however, that even though the bottom has frills, I paired it with a voluminous scarf to add volume to my upper body (have you been watching my YouTube body shape series?!). 

So, I would definitely consider investing in a nice, durable trench coat that looks good on you, tailored perfectly for your body. If you are uncertain on which lengths and styles to choose from, take a look at my Pinterest boards for each of the body shapes to get a general idea of what to look for. This is a true investment piece that will keep you looking chic on your way to the office and back and a classic wardrobe essential, so choose wisely!
