This lace trench coat! I originally purchased this lace trench coat for spring at the end of January to wear in New York for fashion week. It has since become the perfect trench coat to wear this spring season!
We took these photos while it was lightly raining outside, you may spot water drops on the camera lens, and this lace trench coat was the perfect weight. The lace is over a lightweight black liner which adds just the right amount of warmth on a mild, unsettled spring day.
The temperatures this month have been hovering in the 50’s and 60’s. This lace trench coat has been the perfect topper to tee shirts, and this long sleeve blouse, during mild weather. Although I would not wear a lace trench coat during heavy rain, it performs fine during light rain, or fog mist. I love it!
I have worn my lace trench coat over skirts, a black dress, and my favorite casual spring outfit; flares and a top! I love how it spices up a pair of basic flare jeans, and a pink blouse. The lace trench coat really makes the outfit; otherwise, it’s just jeans and blouse.
Lace has never been a fabric I have been drawn to. I always used to associate it with pajamas and lingerie; or as an accent on formal wear. When lace became a popular fabric for everything from shoes to coats to dresses a few years ago, I started to take note. This is the first season I have broken out of my comfort zone, and purchased a lace piece of clothing! I am so glad I did!
I am looking forward to wearing this lace trench coat more, and more, during the spring season; and on foggy summer days! What are your thoughts on wearing lace pieces casually this spring?
