Boi’s Budget Buys: The Trench Dress
Trench coats and dresses always remind me of London. You too? There’s something so English about this style — I can totally imagine myself strutting down the British capital in one of these. Trenches spell luxury, sensuality, and a touch of formal-ness — all in one. So, since Mumbai’s weather has been dreary and rainy, much like London’s, I decided to pick a trench coat dress for this week’s budget outfit.
OK, I’ll ‘fess up — this one is a trench coat, not a dress. But do you see any reason you can’t wear it as a dress — especially since weather in India is rarely conducive to coats? I don’t. A little peek-a-boo never hurt anyone, and if you’re not in the mood for it, then slip on a vest below the dress.
When wearing a dress like such, let it be the piece in focus. So pair it with minimal accessories like the gold wire cuff and a tan handbag (I love the tan+military green colour combo). And always add a surprise element to your outfits — those are the details that make heads turn. And these mint green canvas sneakers do just that. The yummy shade perfectly offsets the otherwise sober, sexy, grown-up trench dress. If you wanna go even crazier, wear a bright pair of socks — think hot pink or one with stripes.
My next brunch outfit is set. Are you going to try this look? We’d love to see! Send in selfies and comments to us… tick tock, we’re waiting!
