Trench coat style – alternative coats for winter

Some days, especially during the winter or cold months, I find it very difficult to get up and get dresses and not pick something to wear that is black. Somehow even a little bit of black makes it’s way into my outfit. I’m that person that is always hesitant to mix blue with black, so I thought this navy blue trench coat would be that perfect element to eliminate black from at least one outfit.

I was originally going to wear a dress, but thought the tweedy brown of these pants would be a good mix. It makes me want to think up more outfits to wear with this trench – I’m thinking one of my white dresses, some blue jeans and motorcycle boots, or maybe with a red skirt!

Are trench coats your thing? I will say this every single time I wear one – they make me feel like a flasher! :)

I feel like I go to the same types of coats over and over again, so a trench coat in a fun color is a good way to get out the winter rut.
