Dress-like trenches and jackets

(Burberry, Temperley, Catherine Malandrino, DKNY)

It seems that for the Spring, dress-like trenches and jackets (worn with bear legs, not jeans or leggings) are going to be really popular. I really like the style. It's a step-up from your regular trench, it's more figure- flattering, elegant and lady-like, just pretty enough for the spring.

I'd love me a coat dress from Stella McCartney's spring collection, $1,995 :O
Apparently it's made of 100% bamboo fabric. What is bamboo fabric? I didn't know bamboo could be made into fabric. It must be an expensive process.

Love this trend. TopShop has an affordable version in plaid.

Those trench dresses are great. I actually have a Joie dress made out of 100% bamboo fabric, I have no idea how much it costs to do it but the dress feels exactly like cotten and was about $150ish. Either way I think it's pretty cool to have a dress made out of bamboo :)

I know! I can't wait to ditch the heavy winter coats and switch to the light trenches.

Fashionfoodculture-life, that's so cool :)

I love trench coats! I love all coats actually. I own about 40 coats. I am seriously obsessed.

I have just passed on your blog,
I wrote you this message, because I have myself a blog. The objective is that people send me their picture(s) with the clothes they intend to wear today or the next few days. And this to find out how is the fashion for people like you and me and by people from all over the world. I live in Singapore and here, fashion has a big importance, there’s a mix of cultures. It gives a colorful city… Anyway!
I think it’s great to share, to see how people match their clothes and accessories together. Anyway maybe I’m dreaming a little bit but who doesn’t intend anything, doesn’t get anything.

If you know anyone interested, it’d be great to talk about it, if yourself you find the idea interesting, of course!

My blog :

Thank you in advance

Have a nice day

I haven't worn my new trench-coat-top thingy out yet thanks for reminding me to!

It's trench all right, but its shorter than the average dress making it more appropriate for Singapore weather, heh.

The Burberry trench is LUX.

a good shot in the arm to begin my search for the trench coat said...

We also have a great coat dress by Verrieres & Sako at Unsung - a new designer with a sexy, stylish line.
