There's something about a trench that always makes me think of London town (the place I stalk on Pinterest and will one day visit). This staple coat can be seen as proper and timeless but lately style gurus have been pairing the all-time-fave piece with ankle booties and shorts (granted, us Aussies have been leading the way due to our "Winter weather").
While the trench is usually reserved for casual layering with jeans and boots you can switch it up and take a leaf out of Victoria Beckham's book by pairing with heels and a dress (I'm assuming as you can't actually see it). Or even work the coat open with a smock dress — the options are endless! So embrace the transeasonal treasure and get trenched!
