I think I mentioned that I’ve been looking for a classic single-breasted trench in a cool beige tone for quite some time. Every time I think I find one, I manage to find something wrong with it.
I certainly did not expect to find the unicorn of trench coats at LOFT, but alas….
This trench is polished perfection! It it has a straight but relaxed fit with a back vent, and it hits just below the knee.
The point collar and long sleeves with button tabs are classic details, and you can see a hint of the pinstriped lining in the picture below.
I love the contrasting tortoiseshell buttons, and the single breasted styling is slimming.
And the simple tie belt and front welt pockets are in keeping with the minimalist styling.
You can wear this trench unbuttoned and tie it loosely in the back for a chic, sophisticated look.
Or button it up and tie it for more structure and protection against the elements.
Underneath, I’m wearing a simple white tee and washed black jeans. This is the Caslon rounded v-neck t-shirt, and it’s actually on sale right now, but low inventory. I hope they aren’t discontinuing it. It has been a staple in the Caslon collection for years!
And these jeans are the Fidelity Cher, a slim straight ankle-length style, made by hand in the USA. These are one of my favorites right now; I reach for them at least once a week.
These cognac wedges are the perfect go-with-everything sandal for spring and summer. The puffy straps are right on trend without being over the top, and the raffia wedge keeps them summery and light. They are very comfortable too, but I recommend sizing up half.
These sunglasses are rag & bone, and the quality is fantastic. I love the oversized square frames in a brown tortoiseshell with hints of lavender. They retailed for $225 but are at Amazon right now for $106.
So, to bring it back to the point of this post… If you’re looking for a classic single-breasted trench coat in a cool beige tone, I highly recommend trying this one. It also comes in yellow, if you’re wanting something a little less traditional, and it runs true to size.
Also, LOFT is running a Stock Up On Spring sale today. You can get 50% off a $200 purchase, 30% off $100, or 20% off $50 with code MORE.
This coat is $160, so if you need an easy $40 to get to the 50% off threshold, I love and recommend this mixed media shell. I have it in navy, and I’m thinking of grabbing the white too.
