I tend to go for classic pieces when I shop. My trench coat, for example, is one of my favorite items in my closet (despite constant teasing from my husband that it makes me look like a detective), so I immediately loved this trench dress when I first saw it. It’s super cute as a dress, but it’s also great as layering piece like I’m wearing here. I went with my leopard print pumps to throw in a bit of a pattern, but I’ve also worn a similar outfit with riding boots.
