"When I look in the mirror I see a unicorn. A badass unicorn!"
Hey babes! Let's get a little trench-y!! Glam trench-y to be exact! Yes, we know it's like basically summer all the time here in AZ but this one goes out to all of our #StyleUnicorns freezing their booties off and still lookin' fleeky fierce on the East Coast! (At least our feisty hot pink clutches are in the #SpringIntoStyle zip code.) We love trench coats and we'll tell you why!! It's on our list of must-haves for every season. Brunch. Mimosa. Repeat. Brunching and mimosas go together like lipstick and chocolate! Tacos and Tuesday's, vodka and cranberry... But for real. Unicorns and girl squads, Uggs and starby's, Katniss and Peeta (mic drop) 🎤
Our twinning glam trench look is more for warmer weather with our little furry booties! How to decide the perfect trench look for weather occasion as well as color palette you ask? Well, when in a warmer weather area yet it still cools down at night, we think it's perfectly acceptable to pull out those faux fur beauties or sassy floral babes and rock them! (even if it's a stroll down the beach or to a fancy dinner date) Especially coming into Spring/Summer weather, we suggest going for your neutral colors like beige, tan, mocha, white, cream and light gray played up with bold accessories! Same rule of thumb in cooler places also when choosing colors, just more lining in coats and wiggle room for cute stockings and gloves. 😊 The color choice (aka shades in the same color family) usually go with the the lighter side or darker side of the color wheel. If you have tan, olive or dark skin then jewel tones are your best friends! (Miss Olive tho, you can even pull off some pastels. You're just a lucky little unicorn.) Side note: When you're pale as a mother (ahem Leslie)👆🏻👆🏻then you can pull off the darker shades of lipstick where as the golden haired unicorn (Lindsey) rocked more of a nude! (We think you get the general idea, we'll shut up about color now) 😜
Dressing for your shape is also key! (We're BIG fans of midi skirts and dresses that play to our curves over here, SLAY👯) As an example, we decided to wear formfitting midi dresses to contrast with the length of the coat, so our legs look a bit longer and you can still get an idea of our shape. (Note: This can also be worn with a long gown, it just needs to be formfitting, if it's loose you'll look like a bag lady ready to feed the birds for the rest of your life.) #ByeFelicia. Also, because we tied the belt around a heavily lined coat, it gave us a little more of an hourglass shape as opposed to belting it where we would have looked boxy and dare we say linebacker-esque (gasp). The high collar on the dress we think adds a bit of that mob candy vibe...yes, no? Maybe it's all in our heads but leave us some love anyway and tell us what you think! :)
Always remember #StyleUnicorns, YOU wear the clothes, they don't wear you. Now let's go get an ice cream🍦Why you ask? To cool off all that hotness, duh!😜
