~How To Pick Out A Trench

It's Monsoon here in Tucson & I love rain wear. Especially a classic trench. Tim Gunn says it's a must in any woman's closet. But, how do you find the right one for you?

1. Remember quality is important when choosing.The right one can last you for many years.

2. Pick out a classic shape. One with an A-line always works. There are ones with fun lines but, keep in mind that it might not stand the test of time.

3.When picking length remember the ones above the knees are for casual looks. Longer the jacket the dressier the look.

4. Pick the color by your needs. Are you wanting int to blend in with lots of looks? Then go with a tan, black navy, white or black. If you want to brighten up a rain day? Go for color or a fun pattern. But, again keep in mind. Too trendy and it might not work for long .

5.This one is for the curvy girls. Cinch in the waist of a trench coat by tying the belt or sash in the back. This gives instant definition to your waist and can make you look thinner.

6. Pick out a material that works for your needs. Silkier one was super cute but, may wear out faster. So if you plan to wear your trench a lot keep this in mind.

7.You can wear a trench coat with jeans, suits , or even a dress.
