The Trench - A Necessity For Every Wardrobe Cluster

The Trench - A Necessity For Every Wardrobe Cluster

The wardrobe cluster continues with one of my favorite items -- the trench.

I love this jacket because it works with everything. In the wardrobe cluster, the trench is especially important because a short one like this can work as a top as well.

I cut the sleeves of this jacket to make it a slit sleeve trench, and this way it is much more versatile.

I love a jacket you don't have to take off indoors. And wearing a bralette under this trench makes it a perfect date night outfit.

Since it's such a classic, the trench is worth spending some money on. This Burberry jacket is just perfect, but maybe don't cut the sleeves on this one ;))

This RHIE boucle trench already comes with a slit sleeve, and is a perfect example of the kind of jacket you don't have to take off indoors.

I also love this Michael Kors trench, it's a decent price and great quality.

Pairing my jacket with a bralette allows me to unbutton it, or even take it off and still look presentable. Since it's technically underwear, a bralette isn't really cheating on the cluster ;)

The skirt is another example of versatility. The gold buttons match my jewelry and create a warm tone to the look, but if I unbutton the pockets it becomes a completely different skirt. Sometimes the simplest tweak can make our outfit look completely different.

My favorite part of the wardrobe cluster is these Saint Laurent boots I chose. I love that pointed toe boots are so in this fall!

For jewelry I went with the ever-popular choker necklace. Chokers are fun, but I notice they can interfere with eating! This necklace is a perfect compromise.

Hope you are all having a great week, and leave me some comments of your thoughts about wardrobe clusters!
