Hi Khatu's readers! I am Elle and I write Fast Food & Fast Fashion, a blog that is light on food and heavy on fashion. I love discussing the weather on my blog, mostly to complain about the cold and about how I can't wait to retire to sunny California or to a tropical island of my choice.
It won't surprise you then that I am beyond excited for the arrival of spring and the warmer weather that accompany it. And what better way to welcome spring than with a post detailing my love of trench coats, a fall and spring staple in my closet.
My style leans toward feminine - with heavy emphasis on dresses and skirts - to compensate for my masculine interior. Trench coats, with their strong military influence, serve as the perfect foil to the flirtier side of my style.
Finding the perfect trench coat is kind of like discovering a four-leaf clover - hard to find but lucky to have. In that respect, I have gotten very lucky.
I used to own around ten trench coats but have since whittled down my collection to three, a reasonable number (in my opinion).
I like to wear the shortest of three trench coats with pants, the just-above-the-knee length one with skirts, and the longest trench coat with dresses. I think it's because trench coats used to be part of a military officer's uniform, but they add a touch of sophistication to even the frumpiest of outfits.
Do you find trench coats as enticing as I do?
