Style Saturday | The Classic Trench Coat with TeachinFashion

Happy Saturday and Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians! 

One of my fall fashion staples is the classic trench coat. A trench coat is so simple and chic and you can wear it a million different ways. Whether you throw it on over jeans and a t-shirt or dress it up, a trench coat will always look like you put a lot of thought into your outfit. If you are a regular reader, you will know I love anything Parisian, so my favourite way to rock a trench coat is to pair it with a striped dress and a bright red lip! I love the simplicity of this outfit and that it also packs a punch of fun colour and pattern. To give you another option on how to wear the classic trench coat, I have paired up with the beautiful Michelle from TeachinFashion! Head on over to her blog to see how she would wear the classic trench coat!

    You look so fab! I love a trench coat and I'm so upset I had to leave mine at home. It's another jacket like a Barbour waxed jacket – it doesn't matter what you pair it with – it'll always look great.Rachael at

    I love trench coats, they are just such classic pieces. Plus they make a outfit look like you've made loads of effort, even when you haven't!Annabel ♥Mascara & Maltesers

    (Irrelevant, but I feel like every time I visit your blog, I ogle at how nice your changing headers are, L O L)I'm totally in love with trench coats, and especially lusting over a classic camel/beige coloured one. Love both your ensembles (and that scarf print)!
