There are some trends that I know will end up becoming more than just trends in my wardrobe. The vinyl trench coat is one of them. It was love at first sight when I spotted this vinyl trench from WhoWhatWear X Target. (BTW, Target is having a BOGO sale on clothing up to Monday!) There's just something about this coat – I know I'll be wearing it season after season. Maybe it's its unabashed edginess. Maybe it's because this one's in black, a color that will never go out of style. And maybe, as these three outfits will show you, it's as versatile as any stalwart camel coat or peacoat in your closet.
1. The Boss Way
It's really not hard to carry off a vinyl trench coat with boss vibes and swagger. Pair with a check power suit and chic accessories and the look is complete. This is something I'd wear for Friday night and cocktails.
2.The Casual Cool Way
I love how a vinyl trench coat can easily go from Friday night to Saturday afternoon. Pair it with frayed jeans, a polo neck top, and a fun, bright bag for a casual cool look. Vinyl can look glamorous, casual, and chic. Didn't I tell you, this trends was versatile?! 😉
3. The Office Smart Way
Vinyl for the office?! Who would have thought, right? Well you can, as long as you pair it with classic and smart staples from your wardrobe. Wear it with a crisp, white button down shirt for a look that's both professional and fashion-forward. Because I work in a more casual work environment, I chose to wear it with a pair of jeans. If your office culture is more on the traditional side, you can choose to wear it with a pair of black cigarette pants instead. Add a pair of loafers with a smart bag and your good to go.
