The Soft Trench

There is an abundance of fashion must-haves this season.

Key pieces that put together a smorgasbord of fashion choice for you in A/W 2015.


I adore choice.

I’m not a slave to the latest trend…I will be holding on to my skinnies for as long possible to avoid the ‘flare’.

Instead I’m selective.

Classic pieces that offer a hint of a trend is my preferred route.

This season the colour palettes are warm and rich.

Caramel, burgandy, grey and black sit nicely alongside muted pastels and earthy greens.

Winter whites and fluid fabrics offer you a subtle softness, that truly pleases me.

So when this trench arrived in store, my little ole heart, might have just skipped a beat.

It was a trend, I just knew I would embrace…

Waterfall Soft Trench $229.00 | Pique Tank $59.95  |  Ripped Jeans Katies (last season) | Tatiana from Nine West $139.95

Oh yes, I was giddy with excitement.

I may have even squealed and thanked the CR gods for bringing this must-have 2015 A/W trend into my life.

The over-excitable woman who was parading round the store in this trench a couple of weeks ago on the Sunny Coast? Well, that would be me!

Please tell me I’m not the only one in love with the soft trench?

Besides Country Road, lots of other stores have also jumped on this trend. So finding the perfect trench to suit you and your budget, should be a walk in the park.

Take a look at Seed and Sussan too – the trenches I have seen in both stores are delightful. I would be more than happy, to buy either.

Side note: The A/W collection at Seed is simply divine – bang on brilliant.

They have also nailed the ‘drop-crutch’ pant to perfection.

Anyhoo, I digress…

My mind started picturing all the ways I could style this piece.

So many outfit opportunities were flashing through my brain.

This lightweight, yet fluid beauty is exactly what my wardrobe had been waiting for.

As you all know, the weather around these parts packs a mighty punch at this time of year.

Even now, as we ease into Autumn the mercury is still pushing 30+ degrees on a daily basis.

With no let-up in sight, my work wardrobe still needs to offer more than a nod to the new A/W trends that are arriving in store. But at the same time as embracing the new, I still need be able to do my job without melting into a messy puddle of perspiration on the floor – not a good look for anyone.

Finding that balance can sometimes be a nightmare.

Everywhere I look, there is wool shouting to get my attention.

I don’t have the kind of skin that can tolerate wool next to it, at the best of times – imagine a blotchy hives like rash and me scratching like a dog with flees.

So to find a piece that offers me an Autumnal look and feel, that I can also layer when the temp drops is my idea of heaven.

Yes, I am gushing with pleasure.

The colour is also bang on perfect. I’ll take anything caramel coloured.

Its rich and ever so slightly extravagant.

Perfect with denim and white. Stunning with black. A match made in heaven with any shade of blue.

So why should you splurge your cash on the soft trench trend?

Any trench is timeless.

But softness and lightweight fabric make it such a wearable indoor piece too…BAM – light the wick on a style flare!

Trust me, the possibilities are endless.

  • A dream with your favourite skinnies.
  • Wide leg pants dream to be enveloped in the soft folds of the trench.
  • Team with a frock or a skirt.
  • Drop-crutch pants with a pair of brogues or sneakers.

The soft trench truly is the perfect and super stylish transeasonal piece.

Have you jumped on board the soft trench? Is this a piece that you could see yourself wearing?

Its Wednesday girls, so I’ll also be hanging out a Kimba’s place for Wardrobe Wednesday.
