I became re-obsessed with the classic trench coat after our trip to Paris a few months ago. I loved how Parisian women wore their trenches with striped shirts and casual flats. Everything about that style is so unfussy yet sophisticated. Seattle has been having a gorgeous summer, but as soon as the weather cooled this past weekend, I pulled out my trench coat (more dressed up look here) for date night.

    such a great trench! i love how you can roll the sleeves up. I don't think we have that brand in the UK.. I've been looking for a good trench but the cheaper ones tend to crease easily – is this regardless of price, or are the more pricier ones better material..?

      Hi Katie! I think it's because the "cheaper" ones may be made with thinner material thus more susceptible to wrinkling. Though I find cotton ones no matter the price difference to easily wrinkle unless there are other synthetic materials blended in to prevent wrinkling.
