Seattle weather can be quite a tease and we somehow have to figure out what outfit will keep us stylish in such unpredictable elements. It can be a gamble because we can pretty much guarantee that wind or rain will be right around the corner. Now, what are we to do...or should I say, what are we to wear.
Seattle is pretty good at the layering game, but it's also that time of year that it can go from rain to 70 degrees in the span of a few hours. You can peel off the layers, but a handbag can only carry so much. You can wear a spring ready outfit under a big coat, but who wants to carry a winter coat when the sun is out. We've all been there, it's not that fun.
So, this is when you pull out those fall clothes you packed away. In there should be trench coat. If not, then it has to be on your spring must have list. First of all, it's one of those pieces that instantly classes up any look. That's why it's a staple and not a trend. It doesn't matter if you're a sneakers or heels kind of person. A lot of our favorite pieces call for a certain kind of shoe, but just like jeans it works with your style. Its also has become part of so many different collections that you can find one that fits you. If you want color, you can pretty much find one in any color. If you're looking for a little bit of edge, there's a few that have either leather or stud embellishments.
It's one of those pieces that works for everyone, and not just for the ladies. Ladies, gentlemen and kiddos can all make a trench coat part of their spring outfits. One thing is for sure, this is a great piece that you can splurge on. It will be around for stylish seasons to come. So, the next time a Seattle sunny day seems a little unpredictable you will be ready.
