Kristen Blake and the Ultimately Essential Coat


Outerwear can prove to be more of an investment than, say, a trendy dress you buy for one season. Coats last through many seasons and hopefully years, depending on their durability and ability to transcend the waves of trends. When you consider buying a coat this spring, we recommend choosing something that will not only physically hold up through time, but that will remain a solid fashion statement.

Unlike virtually every other type of garment ever, trenchcoats never fall out of style. Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn, Catherine Deneuve, and modern celebrities such as Maggie Gyllenhaal and Kate Hudson all have rocked the trench. Paired with jeans, sundresses, trousers, you name it–it’s been done, and it looks great.

Kristen Blake’s Trenchcoats


Kristen Blake Single Belted Trench

You can’t go wrong with a classic khaki trench. The magical thing about a trenchcoat is its ability to jive with nearly any wardrobe choice–pair it with jeans, a nice dress, a casual summer dress, high-waisted trousers. Because the classic shade of tan can sometimes appear drab, dressing it up slightly with a pretty pair of heels can work wonders.




Kristen Blake Single Breasted Trench Coat

This gorgeous shade of blue is a welcome splash of color as opposed to the traditional wheat shade for trench coats. For a twist on a classic, this Kristen Blake creation is a steal and will absolutely complement your cutest prints and sweet sundresses.
