In the Trenches - Working Girl Chic Tuesday

Welcome to another "Working Girl Chic Tuesday!"  Today there is a little nip in the air and it made me think about the importance of the trench coat.  This key item really should have a special place in your work wardrobe.  It's perfect for early spring and late fall when you're not quite in heavy jackets, but it's not yet time for a lighter piece.  There are so many incarnations of the trench and, if you just take a little time, you are certain to find one that is perfect for you!  I absolutely adore the one below.  The little flounce at the neck gives a feminine touch, but the epaulets and traditional khaki color say, "I mean business!" 

Below, I've shown you a couple of options of how to wear this essential piece. I think, with the importance of the wide leg pant this spring, a pair of black trousers and a silky top would be just beautiful.  For a warmer day you can pair it with a classic black sheath dress and some beautiful heels. Notice that I've chosen to accent today's ensembles with leopard.  Remember that leopard can serve as a neutral, so feel free to throw in a little color with your ensemble if you want something brighter!  Accent your look with some gold jewelry and you're ready to go!
