The Classic Trench... With a Twist

The first rain of the season along with wonderful, chilly weather has come to LA and so it was time bring out my ever so coveted classic trench coat (everyone should have one, BTW).  And while it's absolutely perfect on its own, I do like to change it up a bit and maybe add a more interesting belt than what it comes with.  My inspiration was confirmed when I saw the 2012 Burberry Autumn / Winter Runway pics...

While I wouldn't turn down a Burberry trench, it certainly is not required to get this same great look with a more mainstream, tried & true London Fog...

Double-Breasted, Classic Trench found HERE at Macy's!
Then just substitute the tie belt for something more interesting!  I pulled out all kinds of styles from my own closet so you could see all the possibilities... Of course, H&M, Zara or Forever 21 are the perfect sources for starting a well-rounded and affordable collection.

These sturdier, more utilitarian belts have an amazing way of bringing out a very flattering waistline!
And then of course you can add in pops of color, studs and a little shimmer... No harm in that!
