The lightweight trench is the unsung hero of this season's wardrobe. Functional and elevated, this piece is the quickest way to make any outfit look put together, and the easiest way to take your look from day to night. We craft ours in a brushed Japanese bamboo, meaning that you get a triple whammy: a fabric that looks like suede, feels like silk, and breathes like cotton. Talk about versatile!
1. WHEN YOU'RE AT THE OFFICE
We all know how much A/C gets cranked at the office. Not only is layering practical, but it also elevates your look by adding dimension and depth. Upgrade your white shirt and black slack combo with a softer color for a feminine touch. Or lean into a power look with a sleek black coat. The lightweight trench is the perfect alternative to a classic blazer for days when looking professional need to meet style.
2. WHEN YOU WANT TO MAKE AN IMPACT
Play with the monochrome trend and match your top with your outerwear. It's a quick and easy way to make an impact in a subtle way without exerting too much effort. Choose a bold color for maximum bang, or go towards a more neutral option for a more understated effect. Play with textures and hues for a fun take on this trend.
3. WHEN YOU'RE FEELING LAZY
Hey, we get it. Sometimes you're just not feeling it, and that's okay. But if you're worried that this is the day you'll run into literally everyone from high school in the cereal aisle, then have no fear. Snuggle up in your usual lazy day attire, but throw a lightweight trench on top. Not only is the bamboo so soft you'll think you're wearing a robe, it instantly perks up your outfit. A cute sweatshirt with a twist, leggings, boots, and jacket. Done!
4. WHEN IT'S DATE NIGHT
What better time to "dress to impress" than date night? As much as we love looking our best though, comfort is always queen. After all, we want to focus on the date, not on fussing with uncomfortable clothing. Throw a lightweight trench on over your LBD for a sophisticated, yet casual, look.
5. WHEN ITS CASUAL FRIDAY
Casual Friday can be the bane of any workweek when you're not sure just how casual your office can be. We take this as an opportunity to have some fun with color and print. Pick classics like a collared shirt and trench, but add a bold color, or mix your look with a print. Something like plaid can give you that casual vibe, but do it in a crisp button up for a work appropriate look. Throw on a classic trench but in an exciting color, and you've got yourself a look.
