Shedding of The Trench









There comes a time and place in everyone’s winter wardrobe when it’s time to put to rest your favorite seasonal pieces. Yes, the familiar ones you’ve been dragging around and swaddled in all Winter. As Summer approaches a farewell is in order to all of those, even for us too hesitant to pack up the prized goods. It’s not goodbye, but as one might say rather a parting. For me, this means letting go of my beloved winter statement piece: the leather trench.

The ‘Shedding of the Trench’ is the moment when you’re holding on by all means to your favorite winter garment and it’s just time to let go. Most can  probably relate. Summer (my least favorite season) is here, which to me is a huge let down. Not because of the weather outside or the time period; mainly just because of the elementary clothes and forgive me if you disagree. Summer is so straightforward think: denim cutoffs, floral dresses and sandals. BORING. Fashion seems cyclical every year during the Summer, whereas the Winter is completely fresh. That’s an objective fact. A look feels incomplete if there aren’t several pieces attached or elements elevating the entire look.

So here it is, my final post (hopefully, if you’re lucky) embodying my favorite Winter-Spring transitional trend: the leather trench. A transitional way to ease into the summer. Shed the trench and underneath you’ll find a vintage sleeveless turtle neck, AGOLDE denim jeans and vintage sling back heels. Colors are key here; pops of color and soft floral prints make great for a shift into brighter tones and loud patterns.

The Situationist







The crux of the matter is that styling has changed dramatically. Focus on individual statement pieces for a not-so-loud yet simplistic root. A total of three pieces can transform your look, all depending on how you adapt to them.

Statement boots and non-conventional button down top all by my current favorite (Bella-Hadid approved) designer, The Situationist. This Georgian underground label emulates Vetements in their design aesthetic. Except, unlike Vetements, it’s hip and on the radar. Don’t get me wrong Vetements has set precedents that fashion will always follow, but I’m tired of seeing these hackneyed items on x,y, and z. However, there is a fresh quality about a new brand that stirs up excitement in my heart. I love supporting smaller designers, especially when you know they are going to be the next big thing. Good luck getting your hands on it!

It’s a simple formula anyone can follow: Vintage jeans + statement boots + button down. It may seem elementary but when it comes down to it, styling is key. Slicked back hair and dewy face makeup with deep charcoal liner is essential. Also this look is so versatile and perfect for basically any situation. The Situationist.
