My wardrobe is getting a massive clean out this season because I’m bored with my clothes, tired of wearing black and want to move towards owning a smaller, more cohesive wardrobe.
I’ve gone through my coats this week and decided to let go of a leather jacket that has always bugged me. Not because it didn’t fit well but because the brown is too warm-toned for me. I’ve been able to make it work with a scarf but now, I’m just over it. It’s time for someone else to enjoy it.
I also decided to donate my 25+-year-old trench coat. It’s been a great soldier in my wardrobe but it’s beginning to look tired so its time to go.
I’m in no rush to replace my leather jacket but the trench coat is a different story. It was expensive and an investment piece when I bought it. Based on how often I’ve worn it, the cost per wear is probably around 20 cents. A classic trench will always have a place in my wardrobe so I need to find one.
My old trench coat is black which made it very wearable I don’t want to replace it with another black one. Luckily there are lots of fun colors out there so my options are endless. I’m thinking of navy, gray, taupe or cool beige because a neutral color will be the most versatile. I prefer one without epaulets, storm flaps or extra details up top which will make my shoulders look larger than they are.
Is a trench coat part of your wardrobe?
Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
