Note: some of the products in this post were a result of my partnership with Elaine Kim. While I may get products, all opinions and styling tips are my own. Also, I would never recommend a brand to you that I wouldn’t wear myself!

A take on the shirt dress that feels new and edgy (and yet a bit familiar)? Wearing a trench coat as a dress. I did it here. And I’ve done it again in an Elaine Kim number.

(What I love about the above trench/dress? The waist is adjustable, meaning there is as much room as you need. Details like the zippers on the sleeve. The slight tail at the back. And it also looks amazing over any outfit you can think of. Elaine also offers this number in a slightly darker color!)

Wearing your trench coat (or buying a trench dress) lets you combine function and fashion, comfort and class. For some reason, I always think of a trench coat as something a spy or “very important” business woman would wear. I carry myself differently in them. And yet, wearing a trench as a dress allows me to take all of that, and have a little fun with it. Surely, spies and important business women have a sense of humor, too?

Beyond that, this outfit is perfect when you’re running late and need something to wear, just throw on your coat. Or when you need structure, but don’t want to feel so stuffy.

Also, anything looks amazing with boots like these. That’s a promise.
But you could also wear any great boot, heel, or flat with it. That’s part of the fun.

What do you think of when you think of trench coats? Or wearing your coat as a dress? I’d love to hear about it!
