If any of you got a copy of Otago Daily Times weekend edition (Which I'm sure most of you will have, as there's nothing better than enjoying your Saturday morning almond crossiant and coffee while pouring over the paper, right?!) you might have read my article on trench coats and suggestions on different ways to wear them in The Mix magazine.
Incase you missed it...trench coats are 'in' in the biggest way for winter!
For me trench coats conjour up images of street hustlers, flashers or Inspector Gadget. None of which are very 'fashion'!
However my perception has drastically changed, as designers bring out a variety of coveteable styles.
I now see them as the 'concealer of clothing' - the perfect way to hide those fashion blemishes. That gross biddy jumper and those love-handle leggings for example, are easily concealed under a volumnious trench.
No one would ever suspect you put zero effort into the days ensemble.
There's something a little mysterious about a trench coat too, in my humble opinion they are the ideal garment for making grand entrances and dramatic reveals.
Simply untie the waist-belt to unveil that slinky slip-dress you wouldn't usually dare to wear during Dunedin's winter.
